    MY advice is to just ignore it...

    Works for so many things in life!

    I can’t handle crooked tuners on my guitars. I use a special jig and a metal rule to make sure mine are close to perfect when I install them. Little details make a big difference to me. The angle of a 3 position switch, tuners, spacing around the outside of a pick guard, etc.

    It drives me nuts on principle but I've seen enough photos of $250,000 Les Pauls from the 50s with crooked tuners to know that deep down it doesn't make a dang bit of difference.

    The Page model didn't bother me.

    The other one is only slightly askew.

    Would it bother me-yes. Easily fixed-yes.

    It could be worse they could be F logo tuners.

    They're amazingly easy to straighten out. I'd be bothered by a crooked neck.
