Hey folks. My epiphone LP wont stay in tune and I suspect its the tuners. I've had it in a shop to replace a nut and it didnt do anything.

What are the best locking tuners I can get that will fit my epiphone? or will it matter what brand?
It currently has Grover kidney bean ones installed.

Thanks chaps/chapesses

Thats weird that they go out of tune so fast. I have standard grovers on some LP copies and they stay in tune pretty well. But yeah I would just go look for a set of 3x3 locking Grovers, then you shouldn't have any problems swapping them out.

My Epi's stock tuners are pretty damn good. second best tuners I've ever had (I have sperzel's on my jag)

That said, they are Grovers.

Do not all epi's come with grovers?

Not all epi's have grovers. I think they used to back with Samick was contracted to make all the Epiphones (now they just make the Epi acoustics and basses) but on all but the higher end or "custom" models they usually have some off-brand look-alikes that aren't much good for anything.

My Epi les has grovers and there awsome, but my sg junior doesnt, they need replacing.

Are tuners easy to replace? or is it a delicate operation

well got myself some schaller locking tuners. My first time in a GC and it was great, guys in there are really helpful and I would go back there if it wasnt for the fact that I live in Scotland and not pensacola =p

It's pretty easy, I don't have any experiance with Grovers, but at the most you may need to drill a couple holes. AT the least you just unscrew the old ones and screw in the new.

Edit: quoted wrong post. Did you install the schallers yet? I have some on my strat and they work like a charm.

I have four Epi Les Paul's and they all came with Grover's. My LP Standard, LP Custom (Korean), and LP Ultra II all have standard Grover's and the Les Paul Tribute Plus has Grover locking tuners. I have no issue with any of them and I bend quite a lot. I think there may be a problem with the way the strings were put on to begin with. I know personally it took me many years and trying a lot of different techniques to hit on a good one that works great. (Found on YouTube. Look for the "three finger" method.)
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.

This thread was worth bumping just to make that comment? -_-
