    You just pasted it wrong. You set the URL to also contain the display description, which makes it unclickable.

    Interested in changing out locking tuners on a 2021 ZM also. In the ‘Know Your Gear’ review of the 2021, he says the Gotoh SD90 are direct drop ins. Found some black ones at the link below (they are in eBay from the same store also).

    if you get the Kluson let us know how they install and if you had to change out the bushing and ream the hole.

    Taking my tuning machines out to measure would be the best way...I know. Just haven’t gotten around to it because I’d rather be playing it! Love the feel and resonance unplugged.

    OP said the Kluson Locking dropped in perfectly.

    True. He also mentioned the color was Trampas green which is not a 2021 model. Sometimes specs change and at model change with a new color tuner button could mean something has changed from the OP’s experience. I misunderstood the subsequent thread and thought someone was buying the black ones to try in a 2021.

    The stock tuners are exactly the same as the green axe.

    Black Klusons are on the way for my 2021. I’ll post my experience here when they come in. Probably be over a week or so out.

    My Zach Myers came in today. Of course the DO NOT OPEN FOR 24 HOURS is on the box. I’m taking it better than I thought I would.
    9:25 am pacific time TOMORROW.

    Installed new Kluson Revolution non collar locking tuners on the Zach Myers today.

    They fit but the black trim collar that goes on top was a very tight fit.

    Also the black screws were WAY too small so I just used the originals.

    The 19:1 is very nice.

    P.S. I replaced the strings with Reverend Willy’s.
    7—38s—Jingle Jangle LOL!

    Honestly the stock tuners are crap.
    Kluson 19:1 are so much better.

    You definitely do not have to cut yourself to play chords.

    The 7—38 force you to play relaxed which is what you are supposed to do anyway.

    The bends are like air.
