It very much depends on the make and type of guitar and on your personal preference for the weight of strings and the tone (bright or mellow) that you like. Fender are probably better known for their electric guitars rather than their acoustic guitars and, though I've never used Fender strings, I'd expect them to be on the bright side. I find that I tend to prefer Martin medium weight strings but that may be because they seem to suit my guitar and the tone and feel I like better than any others I've used. They are always rather too bright for my liking at first but settle in quickly and last longer than others I've used.

It really is a personal preference thing. I used Black Diamond extra-light electric strings on my acoustic for a bit just because they were easy on my fingers, but they broke fairly easy. There are so many different types that I couldn't say 'Here use these' unless I knew the person's particular playing style.
