while looking at some guitars (namely ESPs) ive found that the only difference between the guitars (spec wise) are the tuners are different. i was wondering what is the difference between all these different tuners, like what makes gotoh, different from sperzel, different from grover, etc..
I know Sperzels are smaller than Gotohs and they're locking tuners as well, but I'm not sure if Gotohs are as well...Just get the model that feels the most comfortable to you and if you don't like it's tuners, you can always swap 'em out later.
They're just different brands- it's like what makes Fender different from Gibson. They all have models that do similar things (e.g. locking or mini tuners.)
so for the most part its a cosmetic thing not really anythign that effect sound quality
