    You can also call John...I believe he still offers to convert your existing SE tuners to locking. That's what I had him do for me.



    As an aside, I ordered a bridge from John earlier this week. He's in New Hampshire, I'm in Connecticut. The bridge is currently in the FedEx facility in Memphis...I guess as long as it isn't on a plane with Tom Hanks...

    Some of these routing trips are crazy. There was a guy at TGP the other day who said he bought a guitar from a guy that lived 100 miles away, and when tracking it it was now over 1000 miles away at a UPS hub.

    Hipshot black open tuners. No drilling, super easy install, and made in the USA...

    Probably a little late to the party, but the Schaller's fit on the Holcomb. However, I had to make the mounting screw hole a bit bigger on the Schaller's to accompany the screw from the Holcomb. Basically took a drill and wallowed out the mounting hole on the Schaller ever so slightly. Otherwise, the holes lined up and everything.

    I got the satin black ones in the link above. I actually meant to get Ruthenium (to better match the originals) but the black chrome looks good also. They ain't cheap, but they are extremely well made.
