    The first year (2002) 5 strings used the Gotoh style tuners. They went to the Hipshot tuners by 2003.

    I had them on an 2002 Korean Skyline 55-02 as well.

    Just check the serial number to see how old it is. I'd guess about 10 years.

    Best of luck!

    Bobster is correct. I meant to say first year Skyline 5 stringers.
