5-string tuning CFA#D#G#

  1. I recently did some gigs with a band whose bassist tuned his 5string Thumb up a semitone on each string to match his guitarists dropped tuning.
    It played amazingly, I was just wondering if this was a safe practice or could it damage the neck?

    This experience also turned me on to Warwicks :hyper:
