Has anyone here put locking tuners on their SG? I really want to do this but I don't want to have to drill any new holes. Does anyone know of a locking tuner that will be a direct bolt on for the existing holes? I have an SG Special if that makes a difference.

When I asked about that once, the guys said there was a locking version of the tuners already on SGs, have a look for them.

Why would you want to? SGs have good tuning as it is.

Very true.

If you had a Stetsbar or something (like I had) it would make more sense to have them.

Eh, I bend pretty heavy, and often, and apply thick vibrato, so my SG used to always get out of tune. I got Sperzel locking tuners installed, I didn't need drilling, as my tuner holes were already 10MM...Check on yours, thats what you need for Sperzel...but I had to get the old tuner's screws filled. That's easy, though. Wood glue + BBQ skewer.

I don't mind if there are holes where old screws used to be, I just don't want to have to drill new ones. So you're telling me that I can just swap the Sperzels in and use one of the existing screw holes from the stock tuners?
