Why do my Gretsch pickups sound weak when using acoustic strings?

The outer wrapping on most acoustic guitar strings are made from a non-ferrous alloy and will not sense the magnetic field when within proximity of a magnetic pickup. The pickup is only sensing the diameter of the inner core of a particular string. I wouldn’t use acoustic strings on an electric guitar for many factors one being the strings don’t have the tone and output need for standard playing.
