Allparts Tuners

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

picked this set of Allparts tuners up dirt cheap and was wondering if they would be worth the time and effort it takes to swap them out for the stock tuners on my 2011 SG Standard. What I mean is, I don't have any complaints about the stock "Gibson Deluxe" stamped tuners that are on it now, so would I be benefiting from installing these? Is it possible that they are of a higher quality than what came stock?

 

Here's a link to the tuners: http://www.allparts.com/TK-0777-010-Sealed-Tuning-Keys-Chrome_p_3660.html

 

 

 

 

Thanks for any replies!

Well, they are the same gear ratio so no improvement there. They are not higher quality and they are heavier so you'll get more neck dive. I wouldn't put them on my SG.

Thanks! The weight distribution is enough to make me stick with the stock tuners--one of the reasons this particular SG is special to me is its outstanding balance. I've played many SG's that suffer from that very issue of balance being thrown off by an overly weighty headstock (or at least that was my diagnosis of the balance issue..)

 

Thanks!!
