I'm learning some stuff in metal rhythm that is tuned to drop c#. My guitar is an Epiphone Les Paul with a 24" scale. My strings are DR 10-46's and have noticed that the guitar still sounds a little flabby with this tuning. I really like the drop c# tuning and want to stick with it. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm thinking a guitar with a longer scale length would be better suited for this type of tuning. I would like to maybe get something a little nicer than the Epi but not real high dollar. Can you guys point me in the right direction as far as a guitar that would be better suited for this tuning and metal rhythm (Killswitch Engage type stuff). Thanks for any help.
