Personally, I like the newer version of the Gotoh tuners. The version on this guitar uses a screw driver or coin to lock the string. The newer version is more like the Planet Waves or Sperzel.The trend has shown that the......MORE »

Pushead replied to the forum post KH3 custom shop special order value?
