how do u change a tuner/tuning machine (idk which one is correct)? would u advise that i (never had experience changing tuners) to do it by myself or take it to a professional?

It's called a tuner, and uh, just buy a new one I guess? It's not as complicated as you're making it.

He means the actual tuning pegs, not an electronic tuner.

its really easy on electric. for a regular acoustic shoudl be real simple too. classic i'd say you're screwed. so anyway, take off the strings (obv) and unscrew the machine heads (normally from the back). and slot in the new ones and screw them in. easy as pie

Unless the shafts aren't the same diameter, you could need to do a bit of drilling in that case.

What all of you aren't taking into account is that there are hundreds of tuners with different configurations of screws, not to mention at what distance from the post they screw in. If you don't have access to a caliper or something for accurate measurement, then I suggest you take it to a shop to purchase another tuner. That way, you can find just which tuner you need.

then i think you wouldn't have much problem with that since you ordered it.. i guess it would fir right for your guitar.. just loosen the nut on thop if it has one then unscrew the tuner at the back.. this should be easy for you..
