I used these: http://visionguitar.com/shop/gotoh-...t-adjustable-locking-tuners-6-in-line-nickel/
Fender locking tuners are a drop-in fit any USA and MIM model that has "modern"/sealed tuners. They will not fit a guitar that has vintage-style tuners like the Baja; you would need to get vintage style locking tuners for it to fit without reaming out the hole in the neck and drilling different mounting holes.
I wonder if the non English native speakers wonder what all your buggery language means and looked it up in a dictionary
Dangerous word to use in a thread about techniques to enlarge holes
No problem with flanges/doing it by hand/ring of wood/'split post'
No double meanings there
You do realise that this is a two year old thread don't you?
I agree wholeheartedly !
That’s an omen of foreboding doom !
Yes, but depending on which type of locker you use, they can be as light as a regular set. I noticed no difference when I had Gotoh Magnum lockers, but they didn't have the big, chunky wheel on the back. Again: http://visionguitar.com/new/wp-cont...ng-Tuners-6-In-Line-Nickel-231204747962-2.jpg
Yes, I agree. The only lockers that I have on Strats and Teles are Fenders - they are excellent, but they are heavy.
I understand that there are some that are lighter! Nice. For anyone who wants lockers and the weight might be an issue, I’d definitely seek out the light weight models. There is more than one way to skin a cat!
I just stumbled on this Thread, and I'm curious if these Fender American Vintage Tuning Machines - Strat/Tele will work on the Baja:
AFAIK the Baja tuners are Ping with 6mm diameter posts and 9.2mm bushes.
The Fender Vintage are Gotoh SD91 with 6.35mm (1/4") posts and 8.8mm bushes.
So the Vintage bushes are too small for the headstock holes and the existing bushes are too small to fit the Vintage posts.
Gotoh have recently tried to fix this by selling retail SD91 packs with both size bushes and some US Ebay sellers are listing them.
Not much different from the standard Fender tuners... What a smart design...
This X 10...
These work very well and don't weigh nearly as much as modern locking tuners.
I also find a slight difference in string response with modern tuners. Response seems more abrupt/brittle.
I'm no fan of modern tuners for this reason. Others love the tonal difference.
To each their own. Just be aware there's more to the change than a bigger hole in the headstock.
