Got some new tuning pegs for an RG120 which im going to use as a stage backup to my JEM7VWH.. might not be the best guitar in the world but it sounds ok with decent pickups in and bridge fixed.

just the tuning pegs dont fit through the holes? how do i make them bigger? hehe im stupid

Don't fit how? They don't go through the headstock? (if so, enlarge the holes with a larger diameter drill bit)

Secureing holes don't line up on the rear of the headstock? (if so just pilot drill new holes, not too deep, and re-attach)

UK based? Near Milton Keynes? Pop in and i'll sort it for ya :-)

Any further questions just post away

Depends on how much bigger you need them. If alot bigger I'd drill but put masking tape over the holes to try and prevent inevitable chipping of the paint. If you just need a little I'd use a sanding drum on a Dremel

What tuners are you changing to? Locking tuners possibly? With those guitars if you need a backup i would definitely look around for some cheap replacement pickups, preferrably an evo in the bridge if you can so you dont have that MASSIVE tonal difference. I know alot of people who just cant get a sound out of those guitars for the life of em
