    The Allparts tuner looks like it may be reversible, like the non-import Hipshot lite tuner is, as it has the hex-key bolt holding the tuning key in place. The body looks symmetrical. But it all...

    It's more a daphne blue, and I do have a daphne blue Strat with a Clapton boost circuit in to go with it (once I put it back together)!

    Birthday present.

    My birthday today. One of my small presents from a friend was a real Eric Clapton-owned pick. Her parents used to run the dry cleaners in Cranleigh, Surrey, UK that was used by Eric (and Phil...

    I've never tried filling this type of missing wood before, but others might have.

    But can we clear up what you have, as you've mentioned both burl and spalt, which are very different things.

    You’ll just have to get an EX kit to use the locking tuners on. I can’t think of any other kits that have angled 6-in-line headstocks without a locking nut.

    They certainly aren't the same unit. The Wilkinsons are 17:1, the Hipshot Ultra-lites are 20:1. 17:1 is a bit low for a bass tuner to my mind. The Wilkinsons have solid brass gears, so aren't...

    Well done.

    Locking tuners aren't all the same and you do need to check the hole height (hard to do if it's not given). Sounds like your original tuners were similar to the Korean lockers I...

    Hi Wayne, and welcome.
