Will a F# open tuning put any unnecessary stress on the guitar neck? The tuning goes F# A# C# F# A# F#.

You're E strings will break Don't bother trying that tuning unless you have really light strings.

No the lighter the string the less tension meaning easier to tune up, although tuning down isn't so effective.

lighter gauge strings would be a good idea, like 8's or even 7's...

or downtune a **** load...

You might want to try tuning to a lower pitch open tuning, and then use a capo.
no need to change and snap strings, and neck stress stays the same.

Yeah honestly, I never hear anyone tuning up....I'll have to try it, I have my Ibanez's Tremolo set up for 10's so I think I wont have much of a problem.
