    I'm generally not a fan of graphics, but if you don't think this is cool then we can't really be friends...

    I'm no fan of graphics either, but that John Mayer Charvel is too good.

    I posted in a similar thread, but I want Sperzel locking tuners without having to modify anything. My guitars below have standard Grovers, and locking LTD tuners. Anyone know if I can replace without modifications?

    No, you have to drill for a pin on the Sperzels. It's pretty lightweight mod'ing though, but still requires taking a drill to your headstock, which can be unnerving.
    I don't know if the Sperzels would be a huge improvement over the LTD locking tuners though. Not that they aren't solid, but the tuning ratio isn't the highest and the LTDs might actually be better.

    It might be lightweight modding, but I don't have a power drill, so there goes that idea. My friend had some Sperzels, and I really liked them because they stayed in tune really well.

    Well, since Sperzel locking tuners are a no go, does anyone know what other options I have for direct replacements? I'd like to replace both sets of tuners, and probably won't be able to use one brand/model of locking tuner like I had hoped.

    The back of the LTD locking tuners has two small posts, though I'm not sure how thick the tuning posts are that you feed the string through. Fender locking tuners look like they may work as far as the posts on the back of the tuner, but I'm not sure about the tuning post thickness that you feed the string through.

    Are you saying the dual hum floyd rose Charvel with 80's skate graphics is a John Mayer guitar?? or did I miss something. Either way the Powell Perralta graphic one is sick.

    I don’t think it’s “his” as in a signature, but “his” as in he had it made and owns it. That pic is from his IG - check it out, he’s got a couple more shots of it too.

    Haha okay thats so awesome. I always loved his playing and he got huge points for being on chappelle show and slamming like any famous girl worth slamming... But this puts him over the top in terms of awesomeness.

    That's sick!! I'm hoping it's not a Phil Collen sig. He's an iconic guitarist for me, but our taste in necks varies greatly.

    I don't know if it qualifies as a sig since it was a one-off, but it was modeled after Collen's Ibanez Destroyer. Unfortunately, i missed out on this one as this guitar was available not too long ago for peanuts considering it was a one off by Mike Shannon.

    WHAT!? Where did you see it? I saw them post it around social media when it was first made but didn't know it'd be up for grabs.

    Not really a thing I plan to buy as I already have both, but I want to try boosting my Rat with my OCD. Someone suggested it in a thread I read through on Seymour Duncan's forum, and it seemed interested. Running the OCD -> Rat might be an intriguing combo. Then again it might not, but it can't hurt to try it out.
