Default Locking tuners for my Ibanez SZ???

I want to put a set of locking tuners on my SZ720. Any suggestions on brand or models? Preferably a brushed nickel or brushed chrome look. Send it!

Sperzels? IIRC, you can get custom colours.

Sure thing. Sperzels are fucking awesome man. The install takes about 15 minutes. You don't NEED the jig if you have a steady hand and a little bit of balls, but I figured it was worth the couple of extra bucks to be on the safe side when I did mine.

It's basically just drilling a new hole for the Sperzel pin, which goes in the center of the two stock pin holes, and then screwing the washers/nuts tuners on and you're done.
