ive snapped my thin e string on my acoustic (i use lights .012-.053) and the only string i can't find is, you guessed it, the damned e that i need to replace.

so what i'm wondering is would it do any damage if i just used the B instead until i can find a replacement?? like would it damage intonation or whatever?

cheers.

It might not get to tension before it snaps. I would do a test run on your b-string which is already on your guitar so you don't ruin a new one. If it does make it it certainly won't do any physical damage, intonation will be a bit off but I doubt its anything you'll notice and probably won't be too bad of a solution to try for a quick fix.

the B string most likely will not be able to go up to an E. You might also snap it by tuning it up, so be very careful if you try it anyway.
