    Hey guys
    Ive picked up a Jackson RR Minion as a bit of fun, and a project.

    Gotoh 510 mini tuners. Withought a shadow of a doubt.

    Gotoh make the highest quality products in the world, you will not be dissappointed.

    Also schaller m6 minis are very good too.

    I've got a couple of these, the flouro pink and green. The tuners are rubbish though.

    Thank you for the suggestions, gotoh's have been added to my shopping cart :yesway:

    I've been having so much fun with this thing, I'm tempted to pick up the dinky minion too.

    I'd also recommend the 510 minis (SGS510) as IME it's about the best tuner going. If you take a look in Gotoh's catalog you'll see the wide range of options and buttons that are available. IMO, the default contoured button isn't always the best match to some guitars and Gotoh offers a wide range of button designs.

    Edit: The SGS510 MG-T with the 07 series buttons would probably go well with that guitar.
