I'm a big fan of Grover Locking Rotomatic tuners. 106's should fit just fine

I use Sperzel locking tuners and they are great for keeping in tune. They thread through the pegs, so you don't have miles of windings. Put a little tension on the string when you lock it down and you'll be up to pitch with less than one full turn. The the turning ratio allows for quick precision tuning.

I also use sperzel tuners. I put them on all of my guitars. They hold up great.

Even my LTD brand locking tuners are excellent(look a lot like the schaller tuners).

The Grovers are plenty light

Thank you for your help, do you know the new Kluson Revolution machine heads?

They are light and ratio is 1:19

I've got Sperzel locking tuners on one guitar and Gotohs on another and I prefer the Sperzels by a long shot. They both work well and are excellent tuners, but the Gotohs are more of a pain to lock down. Never tried Grover, so no comment there. I highly recommend locking tuners as well.

The Grovers don't have a locking nut. You just stick the string through and start winding. After a couple of turns it locks the string and then starts tuning the post. They're brilliant.

Grover have locking tuners.. https://www.grotro.com/Grover/2154a941-6e5d-484f-a28c-2640779e7038/LOCKING-ROTOMATICS

You could always try Gotoh locking tuners - http://www.stewmac.com/Hardware_and_Parts/Tuning_Machines/Solid_Peghead_Guitar_Tuning_Machines/Gotoh_Magnum_Lock_Trad_6_In_Line_Tuners.html
(They share almost same thing with Schaller locking tuners, where you turn the wheel to tighten and clamp on string)
I have Washburn guitars 'Maverick Series' and bass 'Bantam Series' and a few pedals and amps, but man I wish to have more patience and drive practicing my playing, if it's equal to the modding itch, then I'm golden.

i don't like locking tuners. i have had a few different. grover IMO is the win.

i had one sperzel fail on me the locking piece in the center of the shaft got locked in with the edge of the string. i don't know how that happened, but it went in the garbage.

Then check out Carvin premium tuners. For the money they're good.

For me it's Schaller locking tuners (Germany) heavy solid set.. Grover Rotomatic tuners (non locking just way to string lock the strings).
