2008 Models - Locking tuners.

I've always ment to pick up a set of locking tuners for my RG2550e but have put it off. Now with the 2008 RGs having them which makes them avaliable a Cosmo finish, I was thinking about picking up a set when they are released.

Anyone any idea when they will be avaliable? And what sort of price I'd be looking at?

Cheers.

Huh? 2008 RGs are having locking tuners? Where'd you see this?

And why would you want locking tuners with a locking nut...?

Forgot to mention that I've got a Tremol-no on the way and will not be using the locking nut.

Plus it's easier when it comes to restringing.

I still don't see a mention of new tuners for 2008 RGs.

Gudster, that's not an RG. It's an SV.

Oh ****cakes.

I'm guessing that those aren't Cosmo either and are chrome or black in a weird light..?

Bah.

Hard to say...the bridge on the SV does look a little lighter than cosmo, but Ibanez's pictures aren't usually very accurate!

Re: 2008 Models - Locking tuners.

Are they locking, or just "trim"?
