ok, so here the deal
i have a replica of an Ibanez jem, with a floating tremolo
the guitar was set up in A 440hz
is it ok for me to every now and then tune the low E down to play drop D songs?
i know that doing this will make me have to retune the other strings
what im getting at is if i do this, will it bugger up my intonation?
and also, would i have to realign my truss rod if i were to tune down?
thanks in advance

No, the only worry is that the other strings will go out of tune, truss rod and intonation wont be a problem, atl least i dont think it will be.

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.
