    Question on Sperzels

    Ive got a ESP Eclipse-I CTM FT Full Thickness and its got Gotoh Magnum Lock tuners on it and its really pissing me off how hard it is to change strings so Im actually keen to change them to sperzels and just wondering if they would fit in or would there be holes after I put it in?

    Thanks
    Jay

      I don't know about the magnums but when I changed my Gibson Explorer tuners for sperzels there is a visible hole left from the old tuners on the rear of the headstock.

      Personally all my guitars except my LP Custom I have changed the tuners to Sperzels. I find they are high quality, keep guitars in tune very well, easy to change strings. Plus all the ESP signiture models I have came with Sperzels as standard.

      15mm is not thin. A Viper has a 14mm Headstock and EXP 15mm and a custom Les Paul has 13mm.

      I have Sperzels on my customized Strat and I don't really feel they keep the strings in tune very well. And I even stretch the strings like 4 or 5 times after I change them, so that's not the problem. It could be the the fact that I use 11-50s tuned to E standard on a 25.5 inch scale guitar though. :p

      I have only used Sperzels with Tune o matic bridges, I don't know how good they are with a Trem. I find once the stretch has gone from the string they stay in tune.
