    I am searching out the right vintage fender style tuners and I have been noticing some are called "reverse." What does that mean, exactly? I'm a right and looking to get some vintage style fender butterfly tuners for a fender style neck.

    Normal tuners (on a Fender headstock): Lefty tighty (viewed from above the tuners)

    Reverse tuners: Righty tighty
