There've probably been a number of threads about this before now, but there's nothing about it in any of the stickies, I found nothing from the forum search, and although I've found some answers outside this forum, I figure more opinions can't hurt. My band plays in some pretty low drop tunings. C standard and drop Bb are the norm, but we've begun to delve into even lower tunings such as Ab Eb Bb Eb G C, and I don't really have enough money to spend on a quality seven string if we decide to go any lower. Will leaving my guitar in these low tunings be bad for the neck? Will I have to make truss rod adjustments to compensate? Obviously string gauge is going to affect the playability and tone, but would it cause further harm to the neck if I used light strings? I don't really want to use anything heavier than 10-52 (a light top heavy bottom set). Will it be a problem, or will it be fine?
