Prestige Neck and Heavy Strings
So I own an rg2550z which I have hard tailed and would like to put heavy strings on (beefy slinkys, 11-54). I'm playing in D standard with sometimes drop C, so would this make the tension bearable for the prestige neck? My main concern is not warping the neck.
Also, I have read a lot of different things about tension equivalents when it comes to down tuning, but there seems to not be a universally accepted comparison.
If I have, say 11 gauge strings, in D standard, would that be equivalent to the tension of 9 or 10 gauge strings in E standard? Is the rule that per full tone down tuning, you lose 0.01 equivalence in tension?
Also, one last question, when hard tailing a guitar with a trem, is it fine to leave the locking nuts off?
