    It's where the head bends past the nut. Gibsons have tuning unsuitability because of the tilt.
    I was wondering if Harley Benton fixed that. Your guitar is beautiful.
    I would def want one :) At that price point I can get locking tuners if I get one.

    Not having a Protractor to hand but having an internet from where to print one. Roughly 15 degrees.

    How does that compare with a Gibbo?

    17 Degrees for a modern Gibson, 14 for an Epi.
    There was a time Gibson used 14 on their non CS guitars, but personally I find it all pretty irrelevant for tuning issues.

    A properly cut nut, from proper nut material, proper dry lube, proper tuners, using a proper locking wind, and anyone can have proper stable tuning.

    @Limuz , what tuners did you install on yours and was there much drilling involved? :)

    I still have the originals on there. Adjusted the screw a bit on some and decided I wasn't all that bothered by them.

    one of mine seem to turn, turn, turn (no change in pitch), turn (big change in pitch) :(

    Anyhoo, seen Sperzel EZ-Mount that are appealing to me :)

    I reckon you might be on to something there :)

    Locking tuners are ordered :) Unfortunately they are coming from the US so I am going to get stung on customs charges :(
