    What would be the high quality version of the cheap tuning pegs that come stock on Ibanez basses?

    Mine are loose and one of them can't be tightened because the nut slips on the threads. it still works so I stopped messing with it and will just deal with it for now but I'd like to replace them with something a bit higher quality.

    any suggestions?

    Any Gotoh GB7 knock-off will work. Spend some extra dough for either the US or licensed Hipshot Ultralites or the Gotoh Res-o-lites....both are 3/8". Check the "Accessories for Sale" for cast-offs (stock import tuners) if you just need something functional.

    I have a gold set on my 1405. The scalloped buttons are a nice touch IMO.

    Ibanez, Warwick and Fender have all used Gotoh "licensed" tuners. They suck. The real thing is always a better idea.
