I was looking for replacement locking-tuners because the old ones used on my Stratocaster were not abled to stay in tune when using the vibrato or doing excessive bedings. I ordered the Sperzel Trimloks because they were staggered which is important to increase the pressure of the strings on the nut which is a crucial feature because the headstock of a Strat is not bent. Otherwise you would have to use a string tree which looks ugly in my humble opinion. The process of building them in was a little bit difficult but that is not the fault of the tuners. I am just a horrible craftsman. In the end of the day they were correctly installed and I started putting on strings. The locking-tuners make it very easy to change the strings because you just have to put them throug the hole of the machine head and then you tighten the grip of the little wheel on the backside. After that you start tuning the guitar and the job is done. All in all I am very satisfied with these tuners because there are not too expensive and help my guitar to stay in tune. I would defintely recommend them.
I bought a set of these tuners to replace the original tuners on a Squire Strat. One of the original tuners had broken (they are very cheap) and I thought I'd try something different. I'd never used locking tuners so I was excited to try these.
I'd say it took me approximately 10 minutes to install them, including drilling new holes for the little pin to stop them spinning. They include a handy cardboard template for marking the location for the necessary hole.
I love how easy it is to restring this guitar now. Just run the string through the hole in the tuner, tighten the lock on the back of the headstock, and tune up... it's that simple.
The tuners themselves look very impressive, they are chunky, without being massive, and well built. I have many guitars with different tuners from Gotoh, Gibson and other manufacturers and I think these Sperzel ones are something special. The tuners feel sturdy to the touch when tuning, a solid feeling, no looseness or wobbling.
I may be looking to get a set of these for another guitar, the're just that good.
