Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip Lock Standard Locking Guitar Tuning Machine Set:
My almost new Deluxe Player's Strat has a solid maple neck, and an ash body. The guitar needed stability in the tuners. I am not a big dive-bomber but my less aggressive use of the whammy bar requires great return-to-tune action. Because my stock tuners were stock ping-made Fender tuners of the "Kluson-style", I needed to gently ream the tuner hole to 10mm,(13/32"). I did it with a 3/8 " drill bit which worked wonderfully. I am not a toolmaster in the least, but after carefully filling the anchor screw holes with wood putty, I redrilled those with a 5/64" drill bit, the anchor screws were just half a hole width off from the originals. The screws are very solid and upon installing the tuners, the old filled-in holes were completely hidden. These tuners are great, and by tightening the locking mechanism patiently...(15 seconds), you will improve your tuning stability, sustain, and general tone NOTICABLY. I am happy to have gotten the Hipshots in gold, they look awesome, they are high tech and high value for those of us who play along to electronic music which is never out of tune. My Fender Dlx Player's Strat is now a recordable, fully pro axe.
