    How do you do it?
    With locking tuners Iíve always just pulled the string through and clamped. I thought that was the big benefit to locking vs standard tuners....no?

    Yes, no wraps around the post. I even have them on a Brian May guitar, which has a basic Strat bridge, and Iíve done VH dive bombs and pulled it sharp (the bridge floats a bit) and it returned to zero perfectly across all strings. The strings do make a difference also. For example, coated and steel strings stay in tune better than nickel strings IME

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    Do you find you need to widen the nut slots a bit to allow for string travel (so they donít bind in the nut)?

    For me that'd be a toss up between the Ibanez and the Jackson, and the main difference I would say between them is the Jackson's 12-16" Compound radius vs. the Ibanez straight 17" radius. I think the compound radius works a little better for me in general, plus I'm infatuated with japanese jackson build quality, so I'm gonna vote for the Jackson

    I havenít had to mess with nuts except on Gibsons and Fenders, which donít have locking tuners or Floyd vibratos. YMMV
