Re: Locking tuners for Jackson JS Kelly
Are you sure it is the tuners and not something like the nut sticking? I'd try lubing the nut with chap stick first to see if that helps.
You will need to measure the holes the tuners fit through. I think most fit, but it doesn't hurt to know.
Also some locking tuners have a little stud that needs a hole drilling in the head stock so they can't slip round. Some tuners already have a screw in roughly that position, others don't.
Basically if you are prepared to do some drilling and possibly filling, most locking tuners will fit. I personally use Sperzels, I have noticed a marginal improvement in the tone and sustain with them over normal tuners.
