    Re: Grover Tuners

    99 times outta 100 .. it's the nut, bridge, or improper wrapping on tuning peg that cause's tuning problems.

    I have grovers from the 70's that still work like butter and stay in tune perfectly.

    there are gotoh locking klusions available at stewmac that will fit w/o modding.

    the gibson deluxe tuners are pretty lame IMO .. but grovers are the goods!

    Just for the record...My LP has Klusons on it so I was refering to Chris' problem of having a tough time with the G string staying in tune. All my other guitars have locking grovers and I have no problems at all with them.

    I've never had any problems with my Grovers.

    I use the Grover Standard 18:1 tuners on all my LP Standards, and I have no tuning problems at all. I just keep the guitars properly setup, and they're fine.

Maybe a graphite nut would be a good investment to try.
    My Schecter also came with Grover's, and I'll agree that they seem to keep the guitar in tune pretty good.

    I put Sperzel's in mine, and had to ream out the holes. I used a Dremel with a tapered sanding bit and just kept slowly working it until the new tuners slid in. Worked pretty good, and the tuners work great.

    I have Grover locking tuners in my SG. They're terrific. Check the diameter of the current holes in your guitar against the specs for the Grovers (look on the Stewart-McDonald website for the Grover info). You might not have to drill. The Grovers fit the Gibson SG holes perfectly.

    Grovers on my Les Paul can't seem to keep my low E in tune.

    The Grover Minis on my NR Firebird as well as on my Standard are from hunger. I always did and still do think, Grovers bite the big one.

    Chris...mine does too. THat is the ONLY string that does it. And then it gives me trouble even tuning it up, going back in forth out of tune

    Re: Grover Tuners

    I hate Grovers. My G string on my Les Paul Standard CONSTANTLY goes out of tune... pisses me off. When I get the money and make some other needed purchases, locking tuners will be on the list

    FWIW....My new Guild D-55 came with Grovers. They are the smoothest tuners I've ever had! You will enjoy them....I think I'm gonna get a set for my Epi LP Custom!
