But these are for the better, honest. First of all I wasn't really happy with the tuners I had put on (cheap WD Music products no name ones), and always really wanted some locking tuners. I have some on my Number 5 (yellowheart), and love em, so got some more Vanson tuners for no 4. Even if I'm not using a trem, I like the ease with which I can change strings. Anything to advance my laziness, particularly if it's guitar gear I think they look ok and certainly do the job. Feel good, tune easily and easy to use. Just slot the string through the hole and tune it up. And only £20 from Vanson on eBay.
In another thread I mentioned how I have the neck pickup wired with connectors so it can be removed easily. I'm making separate scratchplates so all I have to do is unscrew and plug in the pickup. No soldering! So far it's just the P90, but I have one to fit a humbucker and some more blanks that will take a mini humbucker, a gold lipstick and maybe a traditional tele pickup.
