    Nice. Will the buttons be available as well at some point? Would love to see nickel or black as an option.

    Glad to hear it! Now, all you guys with wing tuners should replace them immediately with Phase III's, send 'em to me and I will make sure they are disposed of properly.

    I just noticed Phase III's have two screws. Will the spacing fit the screw holes left from vintage tuners found on a McCarty model? Really hoping so.

    I've been told they will not. They won't work with the thicker headstock on non-mccarty models. Now if I were them, I'd work on designing a version that would fit the vintage tuner. I'd bet they'd sell a few.

    I"ll flip my DGT Standard over and stare at the Phase IIIs - I love them! They work perfectly and look so cool!

    I really like the Phase III's on my guitars. Just for clarification, the Phase III tuner is not a direct replacement for Phase II tuners?

    Don't get me wrong, the Phase II's are great as well, I just like the Phase III's better

    The Phase III's are not a direct replacement for the Phase II tuner, nor the Vintage-Style McCarty tuners. The PTC can refinish the back of the headstock and install a set of Phase III's, but finish work will be required if you are looking to make the change.

    When they do this is additional material added to the headstock or tuner holes? Very interested.....
