I got a Ibanez grgr131ex‑bkf for modding. Can anyone help me with locking tuners that will be a direct fit and a bridge that will be a direct fit.

I already changed the nut and have new pickups on the way. So the locking tuners and bridge are my main concerns. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Usually Gotoh will work for the tuners, for the bridge Gotoh and Hipshot have similar ones

And nice guitar, i've been having a look at this model for some time. Which pups did you choose? And update with the new pups and general feeling will be welcome.

Gotohs or Gotoh-style with the same screw direction (lower right diagonal)

Generic Chinese like Kmise would work just fine, Jinho would work, real Gotoh would work etc.

What gotoh do I need? Do I order left handed because of reverse headstock?

Yes those are left handed tuners.

Note that Gotoh considers Left to mean the tuners are on the left side of the headstock when the neck is pointed up... Regular headstocks for right handed players are on the left of the headstock in this orientation.

If ordering Gotohs, those would actually be right side tuners.

That is confusing as hell. Good call out.
