I just picked up a DK2T and I am loving everything except the tuners on it. Terrible stock tuners just like all non-usa/custom Jacksons. All my other Jax have locking nuts so no problem, but on this hardtail its an issue. had to re-tune after about 25min of playing. yech!

So what I want is to put some locking tuners on it. I have never changed tuners b4 and would like to do minimal drilling/boring. What tuners would you geniuses recommend.

I have sperzals on my carvins, those suckers are perfect, anyone put these on a Jackson?
Jackson Dxmg w/dimarzios up n down
Jackson DK2t
Carvin DC127
ValveKing 100 head
5150 head
Recto-Verb 112
1960a Marshal 4x12
FFFDFEFRFKFFF,jeremylp,atreyurock9, noahfor, Vangkm, Used666, and sgtshak- great sellers/traders!!

Are you sure it's the Machineheads, or could it just be the natural "stretching in" of new strings?

Changing them should be pretty straight forward. If the tuners are thin, they sometimes come with spacers so that the fit in larger holes.

Take one of the tuners out and measure the hole, order ones with the same diameter.

I don't know that particular guitar, but the Jackson's I have seen have been 6 in a line jobies, so any 6 in line replacements should be ok, but it is worth checking the hole diameter just in case, because they do do miniature ones as well.

Did a google.
