Aight, sorry for the lame-ass topic-name, but I had no clue what to name it. :p Anyway, I just have one question, and I'm hoping one of you can just give me a quick answer ^^ So I've got my guitar (an LTD EC-1000) with my Skinny Top Heavy Bottom Nickel Wound .010 - .052-strings in D-standard/Drop C-tuning. Now I want to learn some In Flames songs, which would be in C-standard, and what I'm basically asking is; Will it work properly? Will I ruin the neck of my guitar if I do this, or will it be fine. I know the strings might get a bit floppy, but I'm just generally concerned about my guitars neck, as I love this guitar. :p

No it won't, you're only tuning down. It might affect the intonation a tiny tiny tiny little bit, but that's nothing to worry about.

it'll be fine.

though if you intend to stay in that tuning for a while, i'd bump up to at least a 56 gauge on the low C, tighten truss rod a little, and if you have a floyd turn the screws in the trem cavity so the bridge is level.

I won't have it in C-standard for more than a couple of days, at best, I think. ^^ But thanks man, I'll keep it in mind!
