I'm in the process of joining a band that tunes in C Standard (C-F-A#-D#-G-C) and I'm just wondering what I should do to adjust my bass so I can keep it in that tuning indefinitely. I've always played in standard or drop-D in the past and I would just drop my strings down for a song or to jam if I needed to but I would always tune my bass back to standard. Now I'd like to leave my bass dropped but I'm not sure what will happen, if anything, to my neck with the tension of the strings that loose. Should I just take my bass into a shop and tell them to set it up? Any suggestions would be helpful. My bass is a Schecter Elite 4 String, if that matters at all. Thanks! ps.. sorry if this topic has already been discussed. I did do some searches but I wasn't able to turn anything up.
