hey guys

im trying to see what tuners will be a direct replacement for the tuners i have now, i dont need locking tuners as im always in tune, no issues.

I would like to know what tuners would drop in as a direct replacement with no drilling on my Ibanez SZ320?

also, which on of these is the grover black chrome and which one is black nickel? each site shows a different pic and i dont know what to believe



thanks guys

Why do you want to change the tuners in the first place if you're always in tune?

Yeah don't upgrade your tuners unless they suck. I have an SZ and the tuners are fine

im doing it for the colour change, although im still debating whether to change them to black or leave them and change everything else. They are also very old and tarnished.

im completely modding my SZ, black pickup rings, black knobs as well as push pull for each pickup, black pickup selector. Ive even electroplated the bridge black.

the silver looks good but the black looks a better, kinda stick out less but looks better at the same time

Chrome will be more reflective and catch the light more. Nickel will have more of an underlying greyish quality.

Personally I'd go with the black nickel. Don't like super shiny stuff.

Well, in the picture you posted, top right is black chrome with top left being black nickel, and bottom right being the chrome of course.

I see no reason why those ones you posted won't be a direct fit. That's after a google search of the back of the headstock to your guitar.

Edit: Oh, and if you are going to get new tuners. Make sure you get a 3x3 set, rather than 6 in line. That's the essential point.
