I'm starting to learn a few of the Stones songs and need to tune to open G. Since there are only a handfull of songs to play in Open G i don't really want to dedicate a guitar to only Open G. I have a Schecter that I have tuned down 2 steps, Is this the guitar I should use for Open G? I have Strat that I'd really like to use on but it has a Tremelo which makes tuning back and forth a pain. The Strat also has 9's on it which i don't think it would work on for Open G. How hard is it really on the guitar if you're tuning back and forth a lot?

I don't have any problems and I go back and forth on pretty damn odd tunings often.

as long as youre good with breaking strings on a regular basis, you'll be fine, if not get another guitar

The guitar should be fine as long as the tunings are not radically different in tension. The strings will go through Hell though.
