and i just wanted to know, is the les paul still suitable for dropped tunings without a floyd rose and just heavy gauge strings ?

with a floyd rose you have to adjust springs everytime you change tunings

because you have to unlock to tune down...not to mention the adjustments you will have to make to your floyd rose guitar (the springs in the back). If you plan to change tunings a lot...don't get a floyd-equipped guitar.

this so you dont need to do this with hardtails therefore its much easier and less time consuming.

Ya hafta unlock the keys on top. Drop your strings. Then retune it with the fine-tuners at teh bottom.
