"Your own sound" is going to come from your pedal setups and amp selection more than who's guitar you're playing. You sound like you need to keep it.

Make sure your fine tuners are around the mid-point of the adjustment when you tune with the keys on the headstock. That way, you have somewhere to go.

Must be the wrong clip. Saget doesn't play anything there. That's Stamos with the BC Rich hollowbody

I've got a 25.5 scale Schecter Omen in Drop B. How low do you need to go? It depends more on your strings than scale length.
