They are great, very stable locking tuners, once you get used to them you wont want to use non locking machine heads again.

carvin customs look beautiful, i love the smooth look that makes them look like they are made from one piece of wood, the cut-aways and neck joints are amazing

Never tried them, I just have experience with Sperzel.

Any opinions on Schaller?

I've tried both Sperzel and Schaller, and I can't find a huge amount to separate them, as far as I'm concerned, it's about personal preference, I just prefer Sperzel.

Worth checking them out though.

I am only teasing

I have them on a guitar but havent used them yet per se....

My favourite locking tuners have to be the Sperzel Magnum ones, they are just class.

I havent used the Schaller but they look great and I imagine they work brilliantly.

They all do really.
