Would it sound good? or should I just go buy a schecter hellraiser?
I'm trying to play killswitch engage and some disturbed.

my squier is my drop c guitar, sounds fine. just go out and get some .11's for it and you'll be set, as long as it has a humbucker in the bridge.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

It will not sound good. You will need extremely heavy guage strings and it will likely mess up your setup from all the increased tension.

The Squier should sound ok. Your main concern should be the gauges of the strings, if they're not heavy then you might have some playability issues.

No I thought you meant the crappy squier guitar. I plan on buying the hellraiser next week because this guitar is pissing me off. The sound is crap and I have a good amp it's a roland cube 30.

Ok I'll try it and see how it sounds.

I tried doing this on my Squier and was not happy with the results. I bought an Epi LEs Paul and I keep it in drop C all the time. (I got 0.10's on it) rocks out nicely.

Something tells me that the guitar itself isn't the problem here...

do i dare point out your stupidity?

first of a floyd is definatly not a requirement, second sure a humbucker would get the best sound out of drop C but maybe your playing some weird country/folk guitar.

to TS, it should be fine so long as

A) have at least 11's on your guitar. (i get away with 10's but a little to much slack for my liking).
B) your guitar is set up for Drop C, you can have tuning problems if you tune your guitar to drop C if your guitar is set up to be in standard. (neck warpage etc).

also i strongly advise to get the schecter, you will be so much happier.
