Default Sperzel copy locking tuners

I am building a Squier Affinity for my brother and he is set on getting some locking tuners. I am looking at getting some of the Sperzel look-a-like tuners like GFS or guitarpartsonline sells. Does anyone have any experience with these or a good quality locking tuner that won't break the bank? Thanks ahead of time!

I have a set of those on my modded 2000 Squier SE, really nice tuners. A buddy, who owns a house full of Fenders, liked them so much he had me put a set on a MIM strat he had.

I think they actually make 2 or 3 different clone versions of those that are sold on Ebay. The Wilkinson clone versions that have "Jin-Ho" stamped on them are pretty nice from my experience with them. Havent tried the cheaper/cheapest clone versions they also sell on Ebay so I have no clue how those are...

They look the same as your picture. Except these are gold

Yea, those are the ones. You can tell by the Jin-Ho stamp on them... That specific auction has a rather high price tho thats for sure...

Here's the same tuners in gold for 27$ after shipping...

My last order from Hong Kong took about 3 weeks.
