I've been playing acoustic for a while and I just got my first electric, but I'm a bit worried about the string tension on the electric. The strings feel so loose, but the guitar is perfectly in tune (Standard). Are electrics normally like this? Because sometimes when I play a certain chord, I accidentally bend some of the strings. Thats how loose they feel.

Well lets just say its roughly twice as easy to bend as normal steel acoustics.

EDIT: Oh, and one more thing. I just noticed that when I hold down a note, I can slightly change the pitch just by pushing down harder.

maybe get heavier guage strings then, seeing as you are new to the electric, i would suggest getting a guitar store dude restring it...adjust the truss rod etc. he shopuld suggest a good guage, that wont kill your neck.

I have 10-52 on my electric, and whenever i play light guage strings, they feel like poop, aka what you feel.

If your guitar is a squire, then this all makes sense cos i know they get SUPER light guage strings on them stock.

Hmmm... The current string gauge that I have right now looks like it would be the only one that would fit in my nut. That, or a smaller gauge. Btw my guitar isn't a squire.

You might like 11-50 better, I can't stand 10-52. Try both.
