Well, you would seriousely risk breaking the strings+damaging the neck.

So, in general, no.

i believe in a thing called love is in standard as are all darkness songs

when I play along to it in E it sounds higher. either every piece of tuning equipment I've used is wrong (guitar pro, youtube tuning song, rp50, korg tuner thing amongst others) and I'm actually in Eb, or the song's in F.

It definitely uses standard tuning, or is a quarter step up or something.

what? play the right notes and it doesnt matter what tuning your in, play the same frets and it does, just play the song right in E i dont see the problem :S

just buy .08 gauge strings and try it out. I'm sure it would be no worse for the neck than playing in Eb standard with guage .13-.14 strings.

I've just played along to the opening riff in standard and it's definitely a G5 to start with

just about every smiths song is a step up, there's really nothing to worry about so long as you have like .09 gauge strings.

Cmon its not like your guitars gonna blow up or something dude. I'm sure the tension from a heavy set of strings at standard is more than the tension of light strings tuned up.

I've tuned to F# standard a few times. One of the times ended with my finger being cut by a broken string

oy, I love it.

Sure, you're guitar won't blow up, but it will sound terrible and become impossible to play if you screw with the neck.

Use like .08's (or .07's) for it if you do, if not say bye-bye to your nice normal neck.
