well i have a mim strat that i plan on heavily modifying.

i plan on replacing:
pickups (going for the same setup as yngwie most likely)
saddles (looking at graph tech)
nut (again graph tech)
string trees (yet again graph tech)
tuning machines

i'm looking for recommendations for tuning machines. i don't care if i have to drill more holes for them (function over form) i just want decent tuners that i won't slip or break strings and will also allow for precise tuning.

i have gotohs on my ibanez prestige and i love them, i've forgotten to lock the nut and done tons of squeals without going out of tune. but over all i know very little about which companies make good tuners.

edit- i'm mostly trying to improve tuning stability, tone and sustain.
