Phase I tuner questions
I have a 1989 CE24 and my phase I tuners have never worked properly, I don't mind the cam lock wings, it's just the terrible backlash and sticking. I have tried to adjust and lubricate them, but they have been this way from day one, maybe I just got a bad set? I also do not want to spend $300 to have PRS rebuild them with PH II's, and also do not want to drill new holes... I would prefer better than 12:1 ratio than the current PH I M6's, and the only locking direct replacement I can find is the Schaller 5502LK top mounts (12:1), (try finding these in the US...) Anyone else not happy with the PH I's ? I am not sure why they do not work as smoothly as the non-locking M6's that I have on another guitar? I have many guitars and these tuners do feel the worst of all, although they do lock the string well... I am also considering trying to rebuild them myself with PH II's, but not really sure how to disassemble them without damaging the back covers? any other ideas?
Just bought these, had to purchase them in the UK
