Are those the obligatory schaller replacement tuners?
Is swapping the the tuners a common mod on the 70s Teles and Strats? Mine still has the original F-stamped tuners, and eventhough I can feel that they are tighter than the 50s style Klusons on my Custom Shop '56 Strat, I haven't really noticed that they did not function properly. I do remember Zac Childs on his Ask Zac youtube channel mentioning that they were inferior to the Klusons, and that they were not easily interchangeable, as the screwholes do not align... Are the F-style tuners so bad, that many people would swap them? I guess what I'm really asking is: Should I consider this on my own '73?
