    I just tuned up from BEADG (standard of course) to C (C F A# D# G#), i use very heavy strings. will it be ok to leave it like this for a week or so until i get new ones (lighter guages)?
    this is the first time i've notice how big of a difference that different tunings make.
    thanks a lot!

    You should be fine to leave it like that forever, if you have a bass with a good renforced neck. I mean, I wouldn't try that on a $50 used Rogue
