Hi All,

Loving all the amazing information I've been able to find here. It has made decision making and understanding process SO much easier.

One thing that I still have a question on is the best option for Hipshot locking tuners in regard to "Tuner Hole Size". I have seen both Schaller (25/64") referenced as well as the Gotoh/Grover style as proper hole sizes that will work. It seems at one point the Schaller may have been the correct size, but then they changed the stepping? Am I understanding that correct? With the Schaller no longer being stepped is it better to go with the Gotoh/Grover?

TLDR: What is the better hole size for Hipshot Staggered Locking tuners, the Schaller or the Gotoh/Grover?

You want the Schaller ream for Hipshot tuners. They don't require (and I could be wrong but I don't think they work with) the stepped Gotoh/Grover ream.

The Hipshots will work in either. However the Schaller ream is the better option overall. The grover ream would provide a much looser fit.
