Is it alright for me to leave my guitar tuned 1/2 step down for extended periods of time(few days straight), or will it have adverse effects on its neck?

Set neck, Tune-o-matic bridge

I occasionally tune my 6-string down to drop A.

With that in mind, 1/2 should be fine.

It shouldn't cause you any problems. My guitar has been in drop C ( CGCFAD) for a while now, and I've had no trouble
yup it will be fineee
and u can play sweet child o mine in that tuning as well!!!! haha

I got my first guitar recently and people are telling me to get pickups. I don't get it. What do they do? Do they help you when you drop your pick?
