    You don’t need lefty tuners (just get used to them being backwards - caused me issues for about a week). Sustain on lower strings will be insane (no real change on uppers). Bending low strings ahead of the nut is way easier!

    Changed again
    But this time I shaved the Strat pocket little bit and bolted it down
    So a set of tuners and some strings we ll get to setting the action and intonation and see what we get

    Have the same configuration on my Lefty MIM.Put a righty Warmoth Roasted Maple/59 roundback on it. Outside of adjusting to the direction you turn your tuner keys, no issue at all.

    You could hunt down Steinberger gearless tuners.

    Gibson used them on a Firebird reissue to avoid those banjo tuners.
