I recently got a set of Ernie Ball Super Slinky's to use on my electric and noticed the paper sleeve the individual strings come in say the strings could be used on an accoustic or an electric. Now normally on my accoustic I use either lights or custom lights (Elixir's or Martin SP depending on my mood when it comes time to change them). Has anyone out there ever used any of the Slinky strings on an accoutic (based on the gauges I'm thinking either the regular slinky or power slinky sets would be similar to custom lights or lights)? If so how was the sound?

I haven't but you got me curious how it might sound and play. I have an acoustic / electric that has a very slim neck and a cut away. You could really play some acoustic lead on that with slinkys on it.
