    I'd say go for it, I put Kluson Revolutions on my silver jet and loved them, the way they performed and looked. Had to re-drill slightly. 0723171558.jpg

    These are the tuners with the stair looking buttons if that helps anyone ?

    Don't mind em on a big ol jazz box. On anything else they make it look pimped.

    Eeeek.
    audept, beautiful guitar. Stunning, but those tuners should not be on there. They make that tiny headstock look like a kid whose ears stick out way too much.

    I like wearing shorts and sneakers, but I wouldn't wear them to a wedding.
    Just because one likes something doesn't mean it is OK.

    I ordered this guitar built to my specifications and to my preferences. I don't care what you or anybody else thinks about my tastes in guitars and frankly I find you the most deliberately offensive poster on this forum.

    At least I am honest. Do you prefer posters here who lie?

    OK, I'll give you what you want:

    That is the best guitar I ever did see. Wow! I love the way those tuners stick way out from the headstock. Your bass player can actually tune your guitar for you while on stage.

    Looks good. Actually prefer this over the penguins with the larger headstock.

    Our little band is playing Althea by the Grateful Dead. One of my favorite lines from the song:

    "Honest to the point of recklesness,
    Self-centered to the extreme."

    The point of my picture post was to show the OP rob batz what the Imperials look like on a small, narrow headstock similar to the Silver Jet size.

    Ok change of plans I got the tunners and they seem to look and certainly seem they will fit much better on my 6120dsw ? So yeah and I’m takeing my sperzel off the 6120dsw and putting THOSE sperzel on the silver jet !
