GOTOH SG381 MG-T Magnum Lock Traditional Guitar Tuning Machine 6L Cosmo Black - Philadelphia Luthier Tools & Supplies, LLC
Found these for 64.99, supposedly the same ones on the prestiges on Ibanez's website. One of the reviews said the posts on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd are shorter than 4th, 5th, and 6th. I guess they're made that way for a reason?

My understanding is that eliminates the need for a string tree on a non angled headstock.

The Hipshots are the same way and they worked fine on my RG.

Went with the Gotoh's. Thought they looked really good and fit well. Just had to drill 1/16" holes for the screws, the original tuners used pins but the Gotoh's covered the pin holes up nicely.

Hell yeah. And it looks like you get to enjoy peeling the protective tape off the backs too.
