locking tuners

  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hello, This is my first post. I was given an Ibanez AS 73 and I want to do a setup on it and install locking tuners. What size tool do I need for the truss rod, and what diameter hole for the tuning pegs is used on Ibanez guitars (and which brands fit)? Thanks! - Johnny

    Hey all, I'm looking to replace the tuners on my '17 RG 421, since they are a little clunky to use, so I figured I may as well got some locking tuners if I'm going to spend the money (for ease of string changes). Anyone know from experience which brands will fit without modification, if any? I...

    I'm interested in finding some more sets of the old style Gotoh locking tuners that Ibanez used to include on a number of non-locking trem guitars (RT, SV, and RV series, and maybe some other models). I believe that they used to call these "Gotoh Magnum Lock" tuners, and they're the ones with...

    Im no rocket scientist but I think that this shop in town screwed me over when i payed them to block my trem and set up my guitar. Shouldnt the trem be level with the body? What are your suggestions. The reason I blocked the trem was because I did not have lock nuts and I do alot of drop tuning...

    Just wondering if there are any Carvin fans in here? I think they make some of the best quality guitars and especially necks around. To this day my Bolt Plus guitar has the best playing/feeling neck i`ve ever seen. Any love for Carvin?

    One of my guitars is a cheap Squire Stratocaster by Fender, which has always had 0.009mm strings on it. It is not a Floyd Rose guitar. I don't know how it's called in English, but it has a tremolo arm without locking tuners. Anyway, I want to install 0.010mm strings on it, but I don't know if I...
