    I'm thinking of fitting a set of Schaller BM Light machine heads to my '96 American Jazz Deluxe as it is a touch neck heavy. I will have to drill a couple of small holes for the 'pips' on the Schallers as they are not in same place as on the current machines. Has anyone else made this upgrade? If so, is it a) easy to do and b) are there any side effects on tone, balance. looks I haven't thought of? Thanks.
