    Locking Tuners for Ibanez?

    Been looking online for a set of black locking tuners for my Ibanez RGIB6. Not looking to go high-dollar, just a descent set that works well and hopefully don't have to drill anything out. Can you guys point me in the right direction please?

    Also do I need staggered or non-staggered?

    I like Planet Waves Autotrims, they cut your string ends automatically. Super convinient stuff. Not cheap, but not expensive either.

    You have an angled headstock, so it doesn't matter as much. Pay attention to the gauge string you're using; you can't get a stock Sperzel set, and expect a 68 to fit. You can get a set with a bigger bore though. Schallers, Sperzels, and Gotohs all work well, IME.

    I like the planet Waves ones. They've always been pretty decent formthe heavier gauges I used to use, too.

    This is really a Buy Nice or Buy Twice type of purchase. The difference between a middle of the road set of tuners and a really good set is about $25-30. Spend the extra coin for a set of Schallers, at the end of the day it's the price of dinner and a movie these days and you'll have that guitar for quite some time.

    I have Hipshot Griplocks with the UMD system - takes barely longer than it does to change strings to install them and they turn like butter. Originally bought them for my 94 RG470 and 2016 LTD, and they were huge improvements over the stock tuners. I'll sell ya one of the sets for $50 + shipping if you want.

    I like the Hipshots, personally.

    The Gotoh thumb-screw 510s are awesome, but tough to get in the states and pricey.
