hey, i have a jackson dinky dk2l, and i was wondering if i have to down tune the floyd rose some sort of different way inorder for drop C. Also, i have 9 - 42 gauge...so i was wondering if this would allow it to go out of tune fast?

As a second topic to this, is there any online shops that sell left handed soloist bodies, which fit two humbuckers?

Thanks for the help,
steve

You probably won't like being in drop c with those strings, the low strings will be a bit loose. I have a dean in c# with 9-46. the 46 still works but a tad loose. Try using those gauges. Or 9-50 if you can get them. I only am recommending 9's because they work easiest with floyds and you don't have to use different springs or do much. Make sure you know how to adjust the action, too.

no you should be able to down tune it the same way you would a right handed guitar w/ a floyd rose...why would it matter if it was left handed? it doesnt change how you tune it

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
