Grovers on 2009 335

Recommended Posts

Would you Boyz N Girlz recommend "upgrading" tuners to Grovers on either a 335 (or any ES for that matter) or an L.P. ??

 

My understanding is that the holes are a little bigger but "bushings" can be obtained for reinstall if desired or if I lose my freaking mind and sell it. [scared]

 

What say you?...

Locking tuners are totally unnecessary if you use the locking method when putting on strings.

 

Grovers are really good tuners, but I wouldn't go to the expense of changing them. The stock ones are fine.

No. I'd probably sell the Guitar if it had tuning problems & get one that doesn't.

No tunng problems.

I have a 137 with Grovers and they're buttery smooooooooooooooooth.

I have Grover's on some of my Guitars & they're great. I have Tulips on some of my Gibsons & they're great.. The Grover's IMO aren't that much of an improvement to warrant altering an expensive Guitar. If you change them & alter the Guitar it voids your Lifetime Warranty if you bought it new. It also affects the resale if you decide to sell it at some point.

 

Good luck

I swapped Grover to Schaller Keystone - just incredible what that less weight on headstock does to the instrument.

Inclined to call it a different instrument in how it resonate.

Also 16:1 gear ratio so a little easier to do the final tuning adjustment.

 

The Grover's on my 2008 335 was plenty slippage back and forth - so virtually worn out.
