RGD in standard tuning?

Tried one out the other day and for a guy with big hands and a part-time bass player, the fret spacing was a welcomed change. I don't play a lot of down tuned stuff so is it possible to tune one of these to standard EADGBE without putting too much strain on the neck? This may be the wrong forum for this but I thought I'd ask.

Re: RGD in standard tuning?

This was asked a couple weeks ago and the answer is yes. Just like you can tun a regular guitar a whole step up, but I wouldn't go much farther than 1 step or you could start breaking strings.

Re: RGD in standard tuning?

Any different string gauge or will a standard set of 9's work?
