Drop B Tuning
(Guyton, GA, United States)
I have a Squier Bullet Strat and I am wanting to tune it to Drop B. I know i need thick strings, but will tuning it to this affect my Squier guitar in any way? Will i have to adjust anything on my guitar besides the tuning?
The Squier guitars really are not made to handle a drastic change in tuning. What will happen is that when you tune down, you will have to keep tuning it for about 5 or 6 times because the neck will try to readjust to its original position.
Then when you go to tune back, the same thing will happen. In general, you need a much beefier guitar for this low a tuning. Squiers can handle Drop D pretty well, but anything below that is a problem.
