    I'm wondering if anyone's aware of modern locking tuners with real tulip tuners, not just metal shaped like a keystone like these

    No, but since the info on Stew Mac says the metal buttons are removable, I wonder if one couldn't just put the plastic tulip keys on a set of these. Seems possible at least.

    What Have FUN recommended. Constructed much like Grovers but with traditional Kluson "footprint".

    Introducing the NEW Kluson® Revolution 19:1 high ratio tuning machine. These state of the art tuning machines are designed to directly retrofit die-cast tuning machines that have a hex head (collared) bushing and a traditional Kluson® two-screw mounting pattern. High gear ratio guarantees silky smooth operation, fine tuning stability with no backlash in a sealed one-piece housing. All mounting hardware is included.

    They look like deluxes and regular grovers simultaneously...
