    I think vintage style tuners are the best style, regardless of any possible tonal characteristics. It just makes sense to me to stick the end of the string into the tuner. I find they hold the string better when doing a string change and there are no pointy ends sticking out when you are done. Plus they just look cool.

    Go vintage (style) or go home!

    Of course it makes a difference. Anything that changes mass is going to change resonance frequencies. It's actually quite noticeable. Whether it matters to the individual is another question entirely.
