    Swapping Grovers in 2018 Goldtop

    First time post, long time reader. Hey LPF!

    question: I want to swap out the factory Grover tuners in my 18 Gibson Goldtop Classic. Are there any reasons why I shouldn’t? (Other than personal aesthetic tastes) I want it to look more like a 56 (ish) goldtop with the Klusons and p-90s. Will I lose quality or tuning capabilities? Thanks!

    You might alter the tone in your guitar a tiny bit. You have to get inserts too as the Grovers requier wider holes. This is not irreversible (except for the extra holes for the Kluson screws you’ll need to drill at the back of the headstock), so no major reasons why you shouldn’t do it.
