    Gotoh are a pretty reliable choice, should be an easy install.

    Should be similar quality, I've never had any problem with those Mexican tuners.

    What's wrong with the ones you have, why do they need replacing?

    Measure the inside of the bushing find tuners with the same shaft size and leave the bushings in

    Gotoh vintage style tuners would be my choice, too. As far as I know, they should be a direct swap with the Pings that came on the MIM Classic Series.

    Kluson vintage tuners are 1/4 inch, not 6mm. .25 inches is like .63mm and the Kluson posts will NOT fit in the existing bushings/ferrules.

    I’ve swapped mine for Gotoh. You will need to change the bushings.

    Fender Vintage Tuners won't fit? Split-shaft tuners are always my choice on a Fender.

    Maybe you can bend it back? Happened to me once when I had my strat on my back in a gig bag and I tumbled over a bench in the dark. The e tuner was just about touching the b tuner, but I was able to bend it back and it hasn't caused me any trouble since.

    I put MIJ Gotoh split shafts on an MIM vintage style and there's a little more gap between the tuners so they can go a little crooked.

    IIRC anyhow, might have been used pings but the point being that you can get identical looking vintage style split shafts that are just a little off. As already mentioned above.

    Get some Gotoh SD91 tuners and Gotoh 9.2mm Fender conversion bushings. I've done it to
    three Classic series necks.
