The only thing I have to add to the discussion is that if you do a 
lot of altered tunings and you tour, then you may want to check this 
bad boy out.  It will save you making the choice of bringing a lot of 
guitars with you or having your audience watch you tune for half of 
your set.  The only caveat I have is make sure that you're happy with 
the tones available.  They all sound a little "synthy" to my ears, 
kind of like what comes out of a BOSS PS-5 Super Shifter.
