They're tuned standard 7, but the 27" scale makes the strings tighter, this meaing that u have more control over them & can play faster, but keep in mind that the distance between the frets is also bigger.
And shure you can tune them lower, tuning them to a low A, will give u the same string fell as on a standard 25" 1/2 7 string

Actually, these guitars, like the K7, come from the factory tuned down a whole step.

The guitars can be tuned to standard pitch, but the tension change is significant (think moving up a string gauge). Also chording in the lower positions is difficult due to spacing.
