    Do they really make a difrence? I might be buying a Rebop 5 but the guy replaced the origonal turing keys with warwick ones. (had a shop do it, not him) are the warwick ones any better or worse or is it just looks?

    Warwick uses Schallers. They're very good (industry standard for smaller keys).

    So the strings should stay in tune fine and all that?

    Most modern tuning machines will stay in tune. People usually change them out for looks, or to reduce headstock weight/neck dive.
