Hi I will have the chance to play with a new band. The singer sings low, and all guitar players tune their axes down a half step. Now I am purist, with both my Fender Precision and my Warwick Corvette, love E-A-D-G period. Some bands love the deeper sound and the guitars and basses sound clankier. Also the singer doesn't have to climb as high. I think, as bass has a lot of tension, I might lose my setup. And maybe even further wood, nitro laquer or screw-connections etc. might suffer. Thanks for ideas on that. I don't think I can skip going down half-tone if I want to play in this band, but worries are there. I could maybe tune down the Warwick and leave it, use E-A-D-G on the Fender for my other band projects.
