Hello everyone.

I am thinking of changing my machine heads on my Peerless Journeyman.

It currently has the stock Grover GH102 ones, & I am thinking of replacing them with Grover again.

Does anyone know if a certain model from Grover (e.g. GROVER 106G LOCKING ROTOMATICS) will fit streight to the holes of the headstock without extra work or drilling?

Thanks.

I *believe* it's a straight swap but would check at http://www.stewmac.com to verify size.

Thanks for the link! It has amazing information like schematics etc!!!

Now, I did got a reply from Grover within a few hours Razz

So that's the kind of Grover Locker I am supposed to use on my Journeyman.

I will get them & see how they fit & update here. Looking at the schematics on stewmac.com I think the screw hole will be in a different place.

Just an update, I did buy the ones suggested by the Grover people & just installed them - perfect fit!!!

No modification (extra holes or something) was needed whatsoever!

I'm happy!!! Very Happy

Thought so!!! Wink

Cool! Thumbs Up!

Your first time swapping out tuners? In this case sounds like it was a breeze. Not always the case.

Yes it was the first time & I was quite scared when I unscrewed the first one (will it fit? will I destroy something?)

But it was so smooth, sat on the carpet infront of the tv just taking them off & on... fantastic!
