There have been a lot of threads recently regarding upgrading the "trapezoid" tuners, and my question is specifically regarding a Bullet with the trapezoids with the plastic sleeve... the ones on the "right" in this thread:
Would these tuners below be a drop-in replacement? I'm not a big fan of the rectangular Kluson look, and really like the vintage F-stamped style.
Details from the listing:
FENDER SQUIER J-807 deluxe tuners for Strat/Tele
Package of 6 with bolt bushings and washers, 2 pin mount.
Fender part number 007 3867 000
Stock on Deluxe Strat, Deluxe Hot Rail Strat, Lavigne & Whibley Teles, Affinity Strat with IC serial number
If they will not drop in, what will be necessary, just reaming the holes a little wider? Drilling somewhere? Where?
Thanks in advance for your comments!
