I have this pack of phosphor-bronze strings meant for an acoustic guitar. If I put them in my electric, would it work? Would the pickups be able to pick up the vibration, since its not a nickel core?
The pickups wouldn't read them very well. The signal will be weak, and possibly muddy.
Mm. Most disappointing. Thanks anyway.
try, new sounds dont hurt anyone do they?
if they arent steel core they wont make any sound.
do not put acoustic strings on electric guitars. i've tried it and they sound WEAK. i used steel acoustic strings when i went to a gig but had no spare electric string (stupidest thing i've done). i replaced the 1st and 2nd string and as i played the solo, the audience did not hear my solo. it was as if there was no sound.
unless your pickups are microphonic then you will get a very weak bad sounding signal.
they were crapbuckers. stock pickups on my first guitar.
So, because of the lack of nickel in the strings, the pickups don't pick up the signal properly?
