Replacement machinehead suggestions for JS100?

Hi folks

One of the machineheads on my JS100 has bent and needs replacing, so I thought I'd redo the whole lot in one go. To be honest, I've never been that happy with the machineheads on it anyway (along with the pickups, trem, wiring...).

Does anyone have any suggestions for a decent set of replacements, please? I'm watching some Japanese chrome ones on the bay at present made by Ibanez but am open to ideas. I'd like something sturdy, one of my friends has a JEM 555WH and I like the feel of the machineheads on that as they're pretty stiff.

Most Ibanezes use standard Gotohs which run about $30-$40 a set. When I replaced all the cosmo hardware on my PGMs with black hardware, that's what I used.
