yeah welcome to the club lol
High fives! Lol.... BTDT
If you haven't gone ahead and bought your replacement tuners, I would recommend Grover Rotomatics and Kluson Revolutions if you wanna keep the "traditional" look of a LP headstock.
oh yeah i saw those were popular for LP's in the internets
My LP classic actually came with grovers. They're fine. I don't really have any issues with them. they look good on an LP too
I got a set of these haven't put on yet, don't think i like that UMP tho
Gotoh and Grover Rotomatics are my favorites. Grover did replace a Rotomatic for me from my late 80s B.C. Rich. The post snapped off during routine maintenance in 2008 or so (when the tuner and guitar were 20+ years old). Grover sent me a replacement only asking that I send them the broken tuner.
Gotohs are at least as high quality. Between either, the 18:1 or 21:1 gear ratios are just so smooth. You cannot go wrong with either.
I put some new ones on today.
I had hipshot ones, but then I returned them because they wouldn't fit and then later I wound up going with grovers... and reamed the holes anyway lol
I was scared to do it myself, but it was actually ridiculously easy to ream them.
This does not fit straight into this topic. But i read Les Paul and locking tuners. I'm struggling with my EC1000. I have pretty annoying tuning issues with it. Basically everytime i tune it and then play for 12 seconds something is out of tune. The guitar is perfectly set up. Everything except for the nut is stock. We changed that to a bone nut already and I'm not sure if aftermarket locking tuners make a huge difference. Any help?
