there's no reason why you can't. They are both mad of the same materials. it is only classical guitars that you can't use the strings for anything else.

^no! that's what the guy said!
classical guitars won't handle the tension of steel strings... so you could really completely destroy a classical guitar like that!

My acoustic is steel strung.
Put an electric steel string on it tuned it up and *ping*. It cut my face.
No idea why it did that. But it was really tense. And i'm sure it was in the right octave. It was only a 10...

Edit: can't spell steel.

Your mids will be shot to hell. Remember acoustic strings have the top 4 strings wound while electric strings only have the top 3. Acoustics need the extra mass of a slightly heavier gage string. However, if it is an electric acoustic, specifically with a piezo pickup under the saddle, it might add an interesting sound to your arsenal.
