    Choppers music on eBay has them, or similar. I have a set, they are open gear, made in Korea by Jin-ho and are very nice tuners. They use one screw on the (very heavy duty, finely cast) plate, but its at the top of the tuner. If yours are sealed, the screw is likely at the bottom. Check the size of hole you have, these need 19mm holes I think.

    Edit: just measured they take a 17mm hole: the ferrules are 16.8mm; barrels are 13mm. So an 11/16" hole will work.

    They look like the el-crappo's that came on my SX. I replaced them with Grover Titans, because I also liked that raised hump in the middle. They look much better than the flat Fender style tuners.
