    I just did this exact conversion about three weeks ago on my personal Strat. I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. I used the slightly oversized fittings to compensate for the Sperzel sized holes. It was easy, and the guitar stays in tune very well without the locking tuners.

    Hi Jack,

    I got mine form Stew Mac. I used the version with the round top, rather that the hex top. Worked great. It was the final part of my guitar to make it have the vintage vibe of my old '65 Strat, which I was an idiot to sell in high school, but who knew? I'm very happy that I made the change.

    This should get you there. Good luck!
