Can tunings bend the neck?
What I mean is, If I tune to say Drop B (BF#BEA) on my bass with let's say 45-130 gauge strings, will the half step up on the top 4 strings bend the neck out of proportion (to the point of damaging the instrument)? I have an Ibanez SRX705, which is a thru body neck if that matters. If it will bend the neck, can it be fixed by changing string gauge?
I put the fun in funeral.
