    If I were you I'd get a set of Gotoh style or proper Kluson direct replacements for that. Nice though they are, heavy Grovers will cause even worse neck dive than it already has and if the capstans are higher, alter the break angle of the strings across the headstock which will give a different feel to the strings, that's what I've found anyway.

    BA-CHEE,

    You asked above how to tell if tuners are slipping, and I couldn't find where you got an answer. Here's the way I do it. I tune up the guitar, pick a string, and do a big old two-finger bend as far as I can. Do this with each string. If any strings go seriously flat, the tuners for those strings are slipping.
