    I'd like to replace the tunings keys on this one Fender Jazz I have. I think it's something like a 69 neck on a 72 body , something like that. The neck is maple and has those big black blocks for the fret markers. The tuners are a bit rough so I'd like to replace with Schaller or HipShot or Gotoh, but I don't know which. Any preferences or are they all pretty much the same? And how do I figure out which tuning key to throw on the neck? I want to do a clean swap, no drilling etc.

    actually I think I will get the hipshot HB2s and the drop D thing. they seem to be minimal effort on the swap with a nice high gear ratio
