Re: down tuning jems
If you're tuning down to drop D or Eb just detune, adjust the trem angle (the springs at the back), check and adjust intonation (if needed) and you're fine. You can't really change tuning on the fly, as the trem angle will be off, but there is nothing preventing you from keeping your guitar in a different tuning.
If you're tuning lower, to C, say, you might want to consider switching to higher gauge strings.
Or you can just block the bridge and then you can change tunings without much adjustment needed.
