It depends. Do the Grovers on your guitar now have the screw hole at 6 o'clock or at 4 o'clock? If it's at 6, those should work. Grover also makes a 106g, which is the same tuner, but they are locking. No thumbwheel or screw to turn, just insert the string and wind. The internal cam locks onto the string and you tune to pitch in less than half a post turn. Makes string changes faster and easier, at least in my experience.

What do you mean, "right set"? Those milkbottle non-locking Grovers are period correct, but I don't know what ones JP used. Those are probably right, but if you want an exact match, someone will have to chime in, or maybe you can look up the specs. I love the look of Grovers on a LP -- way nicer than those spindly Klusons -- but they do add mass.

That's very helpful, fellas. Thanks! I didn't realize there was the difference in the screw holes. I also just assumed that all Grovers were locking :doh:...so you've definitely saved me some headache.

Also theres bore size to get right.
USA Grovers (at least my 2 sets) are .380"-.370" ,they have a slight taper.
