    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! :D

    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...

    Awesome! That's good to know.

    These are the ones I've been looking at: http://www.guitarpartsonline.com/product_info.php?cPath=39_104&products_id=456

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

    tjnugent was selling some on here a while back. Everyone seemed to really like them. Maybe contact him or perhaps he will chime in.
