Serie II tenor neck modify

I am thinking of modifing a Serie II tenor neck so the mouthpiece end has a slight upturn. Is there a tonal, responce or tuning downside to this?

This is for ergonomic reasons for creating room to tilt the head down slightly, while still having an upright body posture playing a Serie II tenor. I use a Saxholder and that repositions the horn more in front compared to a neckstrap.

I’d also consider modifying an extra neck, keeping the original in ... original shape. The integrity of your horn is worth it.
