    I guess the JH.R1 is the standard LTD tuner... it's on a H-1007 Deluxe with a FR.
    Generic tuner you see on many guitars, 4 parts pieced like these :

    So I need a good locking tuner. The ratio doesn't matter cause I'm just gonna use them to speed up the string changes. Cut/lock in trem, pull/lock cut at the peg. I know it sounds weird, but I already install my string backwards by putting the ball-loop at the peg lol (you guys do that too ?).

    Had experience with the Trimlok before (Sperzel) and while they were great, I had to enlarge the holes in the headstock and drill for their little stopper pin. Would prefer a direct fit this time.

    Thanks boys

    Hipshot locking tuners should do the trick. I much prefer them to the sperzels. They are pretty cheap and also lighter.

    I had sperzel tuners on a guitar I sold a couple of years ago. Dont understand why the holes were/are still too small on their tuners. This days when so many play with different tunings and string gauges. I had to struggle just to get in the 52 string. Anyway Gotoh are pretty cheap too.

    Yeah, I had to drill the post but I was able to fit a 0.070 after.
