Petrucci 7 in A standard tuning
Hi there! I purchased a Petrucci arctic finish seven string tonigh on Reverb.. The band I play with is in A standard tuning. A few people on the music man Petrucci Facebook page say that tuning to A standard is no problem for them. On the forums here I see people do indeed have problems with intonation tuning low. Has anybody had any issues keeping this guitar in tune at A standard? I’m just hoping I will not be regretting my purchase and putting it up for sale on Reverb. Seems a bit ridiculous if a guitar cannot handle a simple full step down. Any suggestions or experience with this? BTW I own a Majesty Monarchy 6 and is the best guitar I’ve ever owned! I hope to hell I have no down tuning issues with the 7 when it arrives. I assume drilling the B string tuner will be a must. Am I going to have to file the nut down on the B? Will filing the nut screw my intonation on the B if I were to go back up to standard? Kinda sweating here hoping I didn’t just spend a crapload of money on a lost cause.
