Okay, I know that some guitars still have them (JV Strat, Classics), but it just doesn't seem like a *real* Fender without those tuners, IMO.

And they are a whole lot more practical than modern tuners.

Another call here for the Vintage style Gotohs. Actually, I understand these tuners are better than the vintage. Right at the first locking tuners. Love em.

Can I join this club? I HATE the tuners with the hole through it.
