S5470 Prestige w/ OEM Ibby locking tuners
If I upgrade to something like Sperzel or Gotoh am I gaining anything? I have a couple that are getting a little iffy in that they are tough to turn some days, etc.
I assume all 3rd party locking tuners come with auto-clipping of strings correct?
Whats the consensus about different brands? Any better than others?
locking tuners are a little redundant on a guitar with a locking nut. as soon as the nut's locked, the tuners are out the picture.
as far as quality. Sperzel and Schaller locking tuners have all worked fine for me. it's funny, all my locking tuner equipped guitars have locking nuts as well .
i've never had any tuning or stability issues with plain old Grover or Gotoh tuners though. i've never felt the need to "upgrade" to locking tuners on any of my standard nut guitars.
