Sperzel Locking Tuners
« on: October 01, 2015, 09:12:32 AM »
So, I guess it is my belief that I am kind of cursed. The Sperzel tuner for the low E string took a crap. Feels like it is somehow stripped. Have contacted Parker twice, but no reply. I have, however, found an inline set on Amazon for $63.00 with expedited shipping. Changing out the tuner should take no more than a couple of minutes. Even with the tremolo arm retainer breaking and now this, I still love this guitar. I just think that maybe I am getting the parts that someone on QC was sleeping during their manufacture. 8)

Make sure you're getting tuners with the correct post length. The Sperzels are made in various lengths.

You can get them from sperzel directly. eBay as a last ditch for singles.

Great point on post length, it could be a problem if this isn't right.

USMC/Parker is sending me a replacement. Thanks for the heads-up. I know that there are three different post lengths.

Forgot to reply. After my bought tuners arrived and I swapped out the one, Parker/US Music sent me an entire set. I have to say that the customer support has been fantastic.
