No, you should be fine then. Usually when people have to drill is when they put Gibson parts in a korean or Chinese copy. It's the whole metric issue.

Well it depends. What kind of tuners do you currently have? Pics are always good!

If you have the old turnip tuners which i think comes on the deluxes then yes you have to drill holes.

But why replace them? Grovers are good yes but the turnips are fine tuners as well! If you are having problems with them i suggest just buy new ones, instead buying grovers and drilling holes into your beautiful les paul!

Why spend so much money for a deluxe les paul then drill holes in the thing.
Get a professional to do it if you are really keen on the grovers.

B# and E# exist. IN THEORY.
Prove me otherwise on your guitar.

Grover has quite a product selection (including their own versions of the Gibson/Kluson tuners). If you call them they can probably point you to one of their products that will require no modification.
