I affectionately call 1/2 step down the 80's Rock Ballad tuning.

God Gave Rock and Roll to You
Send Me an Angel
Every Rose has it's Thorn

Countless others.

Or . . . . Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan.

My 12 string Seagull and (in between sessions) my Ric 660-12 lives there.

Sounds like a good idea for hidden LED lights in the neck binding?

Meh... as a classical guitar major back in the 80s, I learned to live without the dots way back. Heck, if violinists can live without frets altogether, then I'm already spoiled just having those!

For a long time I had a baritone uke tuned UP a step (e a c#' f#') simply because it sounded better. That instrument is now my Erzats Renn Guitar, so is in C with lighter strings (g c' e' a') which it just LOVES.

I keep coming circling around to thinking about a 000-15 dedicated to low and open tunings . . .

Heck, pick up any of the old 12-string blues masters, tuned all the way down to open C yet still playing slide. Must have been some crazy high actions.

All my guitars (elec and acoustic) are down half a step. Just makes it that little bit easier to hit the high notes when singing and playing.
