So I'm considering a switch from E Standard to Drop C tuning on my Schecter Damien Elite 6. The string gauge is 10-46. Would I need to do heavier strings and a truss rod adjustment? Or should the neck be fine? (I just don't want any bowing. Thanks in advance.)

Your C string is going to be a bit floppy. If you need some truss rod adjustment, it might not be too much.

Heavier strings definitely wouldn't be a bad idea.

For comparison's sake, my Dean Cadillac- a 24.75" guitar- is tuned to Robert Fripp's New Standard Tuning:

CGDAEG: 052, 042-044, 030-034, 016, 011, 009

I advise you learn how to set up your guitar yourself.

If you get strings such that the string tension remains almost the same, you shouldn't need to mess with the truss rod, just set the intonation right (if needed) and you're good to go. Get some 12s or 13s.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I'm not thinking I'll do it. But I'd like to know what would need done so I can make the best choice. I appreciate your help,
