    Anyone know what the lightest weight tuners for an American Telecaster would be?
    Thanks.

    Wow, those are cool. I was going to mention the gotoh vintage split-shaft, which are pretty light, if you wanna go more traditional. Plus they cost about 1/4 of the stealths. But they're not quite as cool.

    Gotoh split-shaft and vintage locking weigh the same and have the same footprint. About 5.5 oz or so per set.
