no. a lot of it depends on what strings you would use.

i have 12's on a C#std on a prestige ibby and they are too fluppy.

i also had to alter the bridge height, tweak the truss rod (not always, but it was a tad out of spec) and reintonate. and if its a trem model, you would have to adjust the springs in back. and if you were using heavier strings you may need a thicker slotted nut.

I went from 9-42s in standard to 12-56s in D standard without many issues. Tuning that low, though, you'll want heavy strings, and may need another spring in the back (I did).

The RG321 has a fixed bridge.
