I own a js30ke which is the low end jackson kelly and the tuners are really dodgy and very very sensitive. My g and b string also go sharp when i dont play for like an Hour. I want to change machine heads?

Any recommendations? and how much would they be about in australian.

Go with Sperzel's. They hold tune better than any other brand. And you'll love how easy it is to change strings. Here in the State's, you can get a set for around $70.00.
There's my way and the wrong way.

I'm a personal fan of sperzel or planet waves locking tuners.

I'd go for Sperzel tuners; they're reliable and easy to install. I recently had a talk about locking tuners with a local luthier and he's not too big on the auto trim tuners. According to him, they wear out quite quickly, which is a pretty bad thing for a tuner...

Really? The ones I have on my Warmoth soloist build don't show any signs of wear and still work perfectly,and they've seen hell for a little over a year now.

Well, like I said, this is what the guy told me.

Apparently, because they're partly made of plastic, the strings can wear them down. Again, I don't have these myself, but I do trust this guy.

I came in to buy a set of tuners and he had a few, including the Planet Waves ones, but he was quite insistent I'd go for the (cheaper) Sperzels.
