    p.s.
    mods, please move this to wear it would gain most reply's....tnx
     
  2. a Kyser capo would do the trick, just capo those strings and not the E string. You can also cut the rubber and have some strings capoed and others not, I work with a guitarist that uses several capos, 1, 2 or 3 at a time, rather than retuning.

    i really want one... so i can switch from detuned to standard tuning (just by putting it at 3rd fret)

    C# F# B E ------> E A D G
