Locking tuners for RG and RS?

Does anyone know if there are any locking tuners that will fit my RG550, RS140 and/or RS315 with out drilling? I swapped some locking Schaller locking tuners into both my Strats and love how easy string changes are, as well as added tuning stability. I know there's no tuning stability issue with the RG but the ease of string changes make it worth it to me.

Thanks!

I know I'm bringing this back from the dead, but I still haven't found any.

the planet waves locking tuners are a perfect match and they have a better thumb wheel than schalers

Re: Locking tuners for RG and RS?

Either Gotoh "Magnum" locking tuners or Planet Waves are a direct fit with no drilling. Some people don't like the dual color scheme on the PW's but I kind of like 'em. The Gotohs came stock on various Ibanez (RTs, RV, SV and some others) and are a simple durable design. I've put them on a number of mid-80s RS necks with no problem.

I have a set of brand new never installed Planet Waves locking tuners I'm willing to sell if you're interested. I'm a big fan of them and bought them for a guitar I ended up selling before I got the chance to install them.

I have a set of black Gotoh tuners (Schaller style) in my RG570 neck and I did not have to drill anything.
