So, I decided to do a quick mod on my L04 and place the antique gold gotoh 510 tuners on. Nice 1:21 gear ratio. Tuning is rock solid. A nice vintage look rather than bright chrome. I did notice the posts were not as long as the Larrivee tuners. I was concerned i wouldn't get enough wraps around. I was able to get 2-3 winds on the posts. 2 on the low e...so this should be enough.

Normally I would cut the string off a post and a half longer. Low E and A are just cut a post length longer rather than the standard 1.5. All is good. Any considering the upgrade- go for it!

Nice. Were they drop-in replacements? Did the screw holes line up or did you have to drill new holes?

Yes, they are drop in. Set screw fit perfectly. Just make sure you are getting the right ones with the set screw on the angle. I did add some wax to the screws so they would drive better - helps a lot!
