Is there any point of having locking tuners and locking nut, since the nut already locks?

All that theory my guitar teacher tries to drill into my head just gets buried under piles of porn and I never manage to apply any of it

not to hijack this thread, but how about locking tuners INSTEAD of the locking nut (obviously with a floyd).
seems like it would make things a little more convenient for tuning

^ I've seen it on some Ibanez custom guitar. So it's probably an option if you have both quality locking tuners and a good Floyd.

they don't do the same thing. Locking tuners lock the string into the tunning peg. This does not mean that the guitar will not go out of tune if you go nuts with the wammy bar. A locking nut will keep the guitar in tune if you use the bar.

it would be very nice to have locking tuners and a locking nut, because locking tuners make it much easier to change strings.

locking tuners do not replace the function of a locking nut - -your guitar will go out of tune much more without the locking nut, if you use a wammy bar like floyd rose.
