agreed that the gibson deluxe tuners aint as good as grovers and have a lower ratio.. but to call them garbage is kinda strong words.
The original design is from 1930, and those had the tuner locked to the base plate. The Gibson Deluxe doesn’t even met those specs, using the cover to hold the parts togheter, without clamping the cover. I’m pretty sure I can call them garbage, as a personal opinion of course (Am i allowed to have one?). Again, I keep them when they come stock, but I wouldnt, ever, use them as an upgrade in any guitar.
