It would make the strings tighter. And more likely to break.

If you really wanted to you could loosen the tension.

Edit: Acoustic or Electric?

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.
Ideally you would use a capo for that.

I have heard you could snap the neck and I believe it. With standard tuning there is 100 Pounds or more of tension on the neck...or so I have heard...but a Capo would be much easer.
While I don't know the math exactly, I really doubt the neck would snap. If you're using 12s, i can't imagine the increase in tension would be any different then putting 13s on it. If you are looking to avoid a truss rod adjustment, I would just tune it back down to standard after you are done playing.

pffffft . . . . . . snap the neck . . . . I don't think so

Do you know what lateral force would be need to snap the neck? The strings would snap LONG before the neck would

Instead of using Valves, could I use Light Bulbs instead? If so, would the new energy saving ones be OK? Coz I do a lot of playing

I got my pick stuck inside my guitar . . . . how am I supposed to get it out?

Ya just buy a capo. So much more easier. And practical.
