    Assuming you want something with original fit you'll have to provide some information. Are they the Fender 2 pin style?

    Nobody can tell you what will fit without knowing what you have now. The 2 sets you asked about are completely different--- Post pictures of what you are trying to replace.

    I gave my crystal ball a hard look.
    Unfortunately I can't see what guitar you have :)

    Thx Warrent; mine is a 2018 Squier Bullet Telecaster. I'm not interested in widening holes in the head stock.

    Thx Sconnie. I'm inclined to agree. I'll suss this out more and see if they're " plug 'n play" :) Cheers!

    There's no such thing as an upgrade tuner for original vintage style tuners with the poke string down centre of post arrangement unless they are broken in a freak accident imo.

    That second pic doesn't show the posts. Look for original fender vintage tuners, classic vibe tuners , original klusons or gotoh, ping equivalents with the hole in the centre of the post.

    First of all are you sure that it's your tuners? Is the guitar still under warranty?

    you could change them to the following if you want:

    new squier tuners:
    https://darrenriley.com/store/fender-squier-tuners-0055401000/

    New fender standard tuners as used on the american standard(check with the vendor to make sure they fit)
    https://darrenriley.com/store/fender-american-standard-tuners-0990820100/

    or these gotoh's which will require drilling one hole per tuner. (check with the vendor to make sure they fit)
    https://darrenriley.com/store/gotoh-chrome-6-in-line-mini-tuners-tk-0760-010/

    Remove one of your tuners to be sure but they should look like this:

    So you want to buy something similar
