    It It An Issue To Not Intonate When Down Tuning?

    Hey everyone. I found a really nice PRS SE Tremonti at GC that is marked down. (It is the regular not the custom) I know I can't adjust the intonation, but still want to use it for down tuning. (Mostly C# standard) How big of an issue with this be without the ability to intonate? Has anyone used one of these, or a non intonateable guitar, for down tuning and if so what are your experiences? Thanks!

    There are 2 allen head set screws in the stop bar that will allow adjustment of the intonation.

    I know from experience it'll work just fine in C#, and as others have said you can adjust the intonation. Some people will go upgrade to an adjustable bridge when they go to .13s or something, but ....just dont do that.
