when I tune down to drop C, my low C string hits the fret board pretty often when i play it.
Is it suppose to do that or is there a way to fix it?

not to steal the thread, but how thick of strings do you think the TS should get for drop C?

115's should do you good for drop C if your going to stay there, otherwise, just man up and play with a floppy string

why are metal musicians prone to fatness?
Cause there music is heavy.

that or you might need to adjust your truss rod. that was on of my problems with drop C and it would make my strings wobble against the fretboard but it wasnt that. it was my truss rod. you might need both?
