    Just got your twitter post, hmm, you just can't get a proper burrito in the UK (*sigh*).

    In a previous post you talked about having Hipshot Ultralight tuners on your T-birds. is this just to remove some of the neck dive or is there some tonal improvement?

    :ninja:

    Definitely no tonal difference. If someone were to tell me that there was some sort of improvement (or detrement), I'd have a good laugh. It's really just for smoother tuning action and a little bit lighter weight on the headstock.

    Best,
    JMJ

    I haven't a clue, sorry.
     
  5. Justin is it the Colverleaf or the modern Y design?
    I want to upgrade my 09 Gibson Thunderbird too !

    Not exactly sure what that means, but they're not very big.

    I think he means the shape of the keys, whether they're round or that triangular shape.
