Hi all, new reso owner here wondering what is the difference between acoustic strings and resonator string? Is it just a matter of guages or is there really a difference.

It's entirely personal preference. A resonator is an accoustic guitar so fit the strings that work best for you. The reason electric strings are different is because they rely on electro-magnetism so require a metal that will produce the correct e-m response.

Thanks, thanks guest 99 for that link. I tried Googling but couldn't find anything that addressed this issue. I think my resonator came from the shop with nickle wound acoustics and I just strung it 10 minutes ago with Phosphor Reso strings but still playing and yanking on 'em and waiting for the strings to settle down. Cheers!
