    The tuners on my ’96 MIJ Stratocaster is in need of replacement.

    The response when tuning on e and b is quite bad

    I am considering the Gotoh SD 91 Locking tuners as a replacement.

    Do you guys know if the ones in the picture are direct replacements or would some drilling be required? The strat do not have the small hole for the alligment pin as the Am std.

    I cant really tell from that picture, but there don't appear to be any posts on the tuners. Make sure you check that the sizing/spacing is the same. Also, I can't tell from that pic if the tuners have staggered heights, but I would recommend staggered locking tuners for maximum stability
