Kluson/Tulip/Keystone style tuners

Hey all,

I recently scored an Epiphone Les Paul Standard plus top in trans amber and I want to make it look a little nicer.
I'd like to change the machine heads from the standard Kidney bean grovers to the ivory coloured keystone tuners but I'm stuck on what brand to use.

Tonepros offer what looks to be straight swap to the grover tuners but I'm also thinking about the Schaller ones too. I would have to drill and extra hole to fit the schallers but if anyone has any feedback on either, it would be greatly appreciated!

Below are links to both types.



also planning on getting some GibsonGreeny Pickups put into it Too
