replace nut/tuners
I was wondering if anyone here has replaced the tuners on their jem with locking tuners, and replaced the locking nut with a regular one...

I'm thinking about doing it, and just wanted to get some input before I try and epically fail.

Re: replace nut/tuners
My first question is why?

Do you plan to block the tremolo?

Re: replace nut/tuners
Locking tuners coupled with a floyd-style trem just aren't strong enough to stay in tune after aggressive whammy use. Unless you lock the bridge down as Ayrton said, you won't be happy with the results.

I was gonna get a tremel-no, and basically put it in dive only mode. I'm not really aggressive with the trem, so I figured it might make life easier... not a huge deal.

Thanks for the replies.

I think you will end up spending money for no additional benefit.
