    im looking to replace the original winged locking tuners on my 93 CE24. Are there any direct drop ins? Does not need to be a locking tuner, just something I don't need to drill new holes for.

    Hmmm ok thanks. Would these be able to accommodate the shared D and G screw hole?

    Yeah, the old shared d&g tuners were Schaller M6’s. You just have to grind down the edges of the screw holes on them.

    Did the M6 swap on my Artist 3 - an easy drop in. Use a metal file to open the D&G screwholes on the M6's and you're there. Took less than an hour to do including fretboard clean and re-string etc. As a side benefit, the guitar sits better on the strap thanks to the weight reduction. I also installed ebony tuner buttons on the new M6's which are great

    Thanks for your interest - I'm based in the UK so will have to add international shipping cost. I'm happy to talk next week if you are interested. I'm on the road in Europe at the moment ..
