Took the plunge yesterday and dropped £65 on a set of Gotoh Magnum SG301 locking tuners for Amber. Fitted them today. They weren’t the drop-in replacements I was hoping for as the screw hole at the back was misaligned and therefore needed filling and a new hole added.

Pleased with them! I hate stringing guitars with an absolute passion, so anything I can do to make my life a bit easier in THAT dept is to be welcomed!

my 59 will probably be getting a set on the next string change. Like you, I detest restringing guitars at this point in my life and anything to improve the process is great. The gotohs look good on there and I am sure made a world of difference in stringing her up.

They really really do. So much quicker than before! All my other guitars have been upgraded with them.

Locking tuners are like sink faucets...never over tighten

Edit: Those GOTOH's look so good they would be a great replacement even if they did absolutely nothing functionally
