I've just recently started getting into some heavier music and was wondering If I would need to adjust my truss rod to tune to Drop C. I'm kind of a noob when it comes to tuning anything lower than D so any help would be greatly appreciated

more then likely not you won't need to adjust your truss rod. but just go to drop c and then re-check just to make sure.

Thanks for the help guys. Wasn't totally sure if there would be enough tension on the neck, but I'll give it a shot.

If you go Drop C and afterwards play heavier strings only minor adjustments (if you plan on keeping it tuned this way)
Ibanez.

I keep five of my guitars in drop C for my band and all five of them needed a truss rod adjustment from regular tuning (all different kinds - LP Standard, American Strat, two Ibanez's, one Gibson acoustic). Better to check than possibly screw it up and/or have bad action.

Doesn't hurt to check.

And you may need to raise the guage of your strings if you plan to stay in the tuning.

Oh, and may I recommend using Drop D flat.. its actually quite literally C#, which is close, and still heavy toned.

oh boy....
i brought my guitar to c from standard...and then to B
but everything is fine for me

No, just disregard all the posts in this thread that say that the tone is noticeably worse when it's dying...
