This is my most versatile guitar. It can tune to D, 1 step down, or with medium gauge strings I often tune it down to C,, 2 steps down. Tuned down to B, the strings flop a little, but I have used a baritone set to good effect. The tone is wonderful and sonorous, with a piano like quality on lower notes. Amplified it sounds even better with the Pro Preamp. It's fun playing in better keys for my voice when tuned to C, plus I always get a lot of admirers after the gig wanting to know about the guitar.
