    I'm looking to replace the tuners on my 2006 LP Standard. Any suggestions? I'd like to stay with the kluson look. Which size do I need for an exact fit (.11 or .13)? How are the Gotoh's? Thanks!

    do they have just the press-in grommets, rather than screw-in types? if so, gotohs are what you have already, and they're excellent. if they have the screw-in bushings, you can swap them for the gotohs by adding adapter bushings.

    why are you looking to replace them? tuning issues originate from problems with the nut, not the keys.

    One of my tuners is bent. Unless I can find an individual replacement, I figure I might as well upgrade to higher quality tuners (if there are any available).

    The Tone Pros Klusons look great. Anyone know which version would be a direct fit for an 06 LP Standard?
