Right, I'd like to start with a little arse-kissing cus it's my first post. I like this website alot, and have only really started to use it properly recently. But I think it's a real nice community we got going on here and I like the cut of everyone's jib that ive had dealings with. So nice one to kopper for starting this.
Arse kissing over, this questions is really for people who have had any experience with 60's Japanese Guitars like Teisco's ect. The sound is great (and they look fucking cool), just what I'm looking for. The trouble I have is getting the fuckers to stay in tune. Any one had any experience with this? or got any ingenuous ideas? I thought about changing the Machine heads, anyone done this? how did it pan out? Or those tuning lock things, would they work? I barley hacve a pot to piss in, so I'm looking for the most cash friendly option. Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers for reading, stay well.
Locking tuners work fine, but I am not too sure how the ywould work on a Teisco as far as performance. They install easily enough just make sure you have the correct tools - the fit has to be perfectly snug. I forget the name of the tool I used (dremmel?) but ask your local guitar shop.
You can usually find inexpensice locking tuners on ebay - You might went to spend a few bucks though to ensure the highest quality performance.
