I just bought a set of Gotoh aged tuners and installed Uncle Lou's tips. Everything was great until I went to tune the guitar with the new strings. One of the tips gave half a turn then spun loose. The shaft of the Gotoh is flat on two sides and don't have the "fins" or spearhead shape of other tuners. Therefore they don't have as much bite on the tips. I super glued it but I'm concerned that another could break loose. Has anyone else had trouble with the Gotoh shafts?
I just wish the Gotoh tips were the correct color to begin with.
Having said that, the tuners look awesome with Lou's tips and a bit of my movie magic aging.
Here they are half way through the process:
