It is more of a neck issue than a string issue. If you drop it down permanently you'll want to have the neck tension adjusted, but if it is just to mess around on every once in a while it won't hurt anything.

I have the Ovation Celebrity KOA. I just embellish the sound so much.

Spontaneous buy, haha. The guy who sold me the guitar was this old dude who plays bass in a local band. He was very helpful about it, he said any time someone is eager to learn how to play the guitar, he's more than happy and willing to help them out. It was nice meeting someone who wanted to promote or share their hobby.

Oh BTW, do you have any tips on maintaining the acoustic? Specifically, do you really *need* to keep it in a humidified room? I'm wondering if it's okay to just store it in my room, nothing fancy with regards to room climate compared to what I've seen in some guitar stores.
just keep it in a case (hard is better), above ground and away from vents. if you like go on a plane and come off or go on a long drive, wait 5-7 hours before taking it out of the case so the pressure changes slower and there are no cracks in the top. in the winter it is good to have a humidifier in the case too

That was my first guitar. I loved it!! Is that the spruce top or ceder top?

I recently upgraded to a Breedlove J22 with Koa front/back/sides. They make beautiful guitars that are as much art as they are instruments. Enjoy your new guitar
