    I wonder if the nickel/bronze strings would bring out little more "acoustic" tone on a laminate like a 175 or Sadowsky, etc.

    It's easy enough to find out.

    I've tried phosphor-bronze on a 175-ish Samick I used to have, and it didn't make a lot of difference. It added some treble and made it a hair louder, but it's still a guitar with very little acoustic voice.

    I've also used Martin Retro (Monel, nickel, or "nickel" if you prefer) acoustic strings on a Godin Kingpin, which has a relatively lively acoustic sound compared to other set pickup laminate guitars. They're definitely a little louder than an electric nickel string (e.g., TI Bebop Jazz, which I tried on that guitar as well), but not dramatically.

    My lesson learned is that you can't change the basic acoustic character of an electric guitar by changing strings.

    When I had a D35 in the 70's I played copper wound strings. I think they were martin branded.

    I was looking for Steve Stills Martin D45 sound and those strings worked miracles to get as close as I could without ditching the D35.
