If I could suggest as well, if you plan to drop tune, especially going down to C, then don't do it on one set of strings. Go up on the string weight. I usually consider 1 step up for each step down. The best way to do that is to have a second axe. I would suggest it isn't about getting more than one guitar for the utility but don't limit your options when it comes to playing.
Turnings and vibe sum it up. I have 7 guitars for different tunings or uses. Many have humbuckers, one has mini humbuckers, one has single coils, one acoustic, one 7 string. P90's coming. Can never have to many!
"Since nearly all of us at ESP are musicians, we know what it feels like to get inspired by picking up a diferent instrument now and then. Sometimes when you're stuck in a creative rut, turning to the same chord types and scales over and over again, the fastest way to break out into a new playing mode is to pick up a new guitar. Sometimes, the act of trying a different guitar or bass will literally lead you into writing a new song, based on the inspiration of the different feel of the neck, the weight of the body, the tone of the pickups, and more" <-------- YES!
