Just started playing a couple of months ago on my cousins guitar.
I finally bought my own about a week ago, I was low on cash though, so I went and bought the DR-100.
I was wondering if this guitar could handle tuning up to an Open-E.
So will it break the neck/strings?
I've heard about the Open-D/Capo alternative, but I'm really looking to avoid that.
Why are you looking to avoid Open D? It's not any harder to tune down.
It's Only Rock and Roll, But I like It
^--Why? Anyways, your guitar will handle Open E tuning, Im quite confident the neck wont break...lol.
What gauge strings are you using?
Why the aversion to capos? They're cheap as hell and useful. If you ever start trying to sing while playing, you will NEED a capo.
