Are these tuners compatible with my Vm lp? http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Tuners/Guitar,_solid_peghead_tuners/1/Grover_Full-size_Locking_Tuning_Machines/Details.html#details


And what is the process of changing tuners like and what is the difficulty?




Sorry for posting 2 'how to' threads consecutively but i want to make sure that i know what i'm getting myself into and if they'll even work in the first place.

The best way to determine if they will work, is to remove one tuner from your guitar and check the size of yours against the spec size of the replacement.


It's really easy to swap them out, as long as they match. Just make sure you use a screwdriver that actually fits the screws, so you don't have any problems with stripping the heads, and lube the new screws by running them through your hair a few times. Also, be carefull not to overtighten the post nuts, as it's really easy to break off the tops of cast frame tuners. Just snug them down good, and check them a week or two later to make sure they are not loosening.
