Thanks for asking this Dodger.....I would like to know the same thing. I just asked this on a thread below about my 'Jeff Skunk Baxter' model. The tuners on it are not marked with a brand name, so I don't know which tuners I can safely replace them with, without resorting to surgery on the headstock.

Actually, no need for an answer now, I just replaced my machineheads with standard Grover Rotomatics. I picked up some off ebay quite cheap. Anyway it took 10 minutes, no trouble and a straightforward swap. Happy now!

For everyone else who has this same question. I have found that most sealed tuners require a 10mm (9.91mm) hole, but I have never taken out the Epiphone tuners out to verify. I also notice that StewMac sells a 10mm drill bit for installing tuners and two reamers for accurate fitting. From my own experience with tuners I just completed a headstock remodel and when I was ready to install the tuners all I had was a 3/8", which is a bit too small for the tuners I had to use a reamer to enlarge the hole for a perfect fit. Yesterday I did go out and buy a 10mm bit for the next time I have to install tuners. Hope this is helpful to anyone doing this kind of work.
