hello, i have an acoustic guitar (concert), and i put steel strings on it, now the strings have cut into the bridge, and i removed them.my question is, do you think that the neck has suffered under the steel strings? i would like to play steel strings, do i have to buy another guitar or is it ok when i compound the bridge?

thx alot :B

NEVER put steel strings on a classical guitar, its very VERY hard on the bridge. IF you would like to play steel string, buy a new guitar.

Is it a classical guitar? Or not? I'm confused...

hm,its very big, and in the sound hole stands "concert guitar". dont know which characteristics classic guitars have, but when classic guitars are these little handy guitars, this is not one

If it came with nylon strings, and you put steel strings on it you may damage the guitar permanently. Nylon strings have way less tension on them, and the guitar is only built for one kind of strings.

You may get off easy by replacing the bridge. Look behind the neck to see if it's pulling away from the body. It may need to be reset.
