i have no idea about anything that has to do with tuning gears, but i know that i need new ones. the nuts and washers on mine are always coming loose and the strings are always going out of tune on bends (just full step bends). I have an RGA121 and i know i need new tuning pegs.

i dont know what im looking for because i know nothing about them so any help would be useful as in brands to look into, the process of replacing them, and how i should go about seeing what kind i need.

thanks in advance
wilkinson ez lok are good for a budget, if not sperzel,gototh, or planet waves makes good locking tuners as well as schaller
