You can tune down and/or change string gauges within sensible limits. A half step down works fine. The limitation on how low you can go before the intonation craps out is most often the (plain) 3rd string – anything thicker than a 0.018″ usually sounds horribly “plonky” at, or close to, concert pitch, but thinner ones can become too floppy (and difficult to intonate) when tuned down – and again, using a wound 3rd is not an option if you have a True Temperament neck designed for a plain 3rd string.

We offer a LOW TUNE, standard (25-1/2”) scale version for “fourth down” tuning (B – E – A – D – F# – B), and verions for 27″ scale.
