    Hello people:

    I have to mop my entire house, so i will be ¿short is the word?

    Is possible to tune in drop A or Drop E an edge III bridge?

    I have a cheap guitar, the Ibanez RG350DX with an edge III bridge that I do not use anymore. I am planning to play again the guitar, but my intention is to play with a low tuning, Drop A, or if it is possible drop E (one octave lower than normal) , but obviously in the six strings.

    ¿WHY?

    1 Because do not want to spend money in guitars for now
    2 I can not play more than six strings, in any case, less.
    3 Just want to use it to hear what I am doing, not to play live (do not know how to explain it in English)
    etc...

    If there is a way and you have time to explain it, please do it.

    Thanks, and sorry for the bad English.

    Of course you can, with proper Strings you can tune down with near any Bridge. You will need at least 12s or 13s.

    I would not go lower than Drop A, you scale is not optimal for anything lower than A and it will a pain in the ass to set up the guitar.
    Speaking of that, you need to setup your guitar, better: Let a professional do it.
    You need to adjust the Bridge and of course the neck.

    I Play a Fender Jazzmaster with C-Tuning and it works too ;)
