I recently installed locking tuners on my telecaster. Iím sold on the technology. Anybody have any experience installing them on the 335? If so, what do you recommend? I want ones that are complete drop in. No drilling, adapter plates, or other headstock modifications. Also at least 18:1 tuning ratio.

I have locking tuners on my LP. I think they are Grover's. Not sure of the tuning ratio. I like Fenders old school tuners where the string goes into the hole in the center so the damn high e did not poke into your finger. I get jabbed at least once every string change on my axes.I guess with my locking tuners I could cut the end right next to hole due to them being locking and all. I also have locking tuners on my Strat and have had them on other guitars as well.

I have locking Grovers on my 335. Grover 502 models. They drop right in.

These look good to me, vintage tuner housing, double ring, 15:1 ratio.

Grovers came on my SG, and I bought a second set off ebay for my (used) V, because the set on it was "upgraded" by the PO.

They are very nice, but for looks I keep the Deluxe on my others.

I put Grovers on my LP, and I think they are great. I did have to drill a hole because it had the robot tuners on it. I have read the Kluson Revolution are nice and no holes are needed if you have Kluson style tuners on it already.
