  • RR1T with Jin-Ho tuners?

    Did Jackson install Jin-Ho tuners in made in USA guitars like RR1 in 2003? Or has someone replaced Gotohs with cheaper parts:
    My Jacksons: RR1 x2, RR Pro, Soloist Pro, RRXMG x2, SDX, JS32RR

    For me these tuners looks like real Gotoh, why do you think otherwise?

    '99 KV-2 Camo
    '01 KV-2 Black Ghost Flames
    '93 Grover Jackson Kelly Custom

        I can't tell. Can you explain \ add a pointer or circle around the differences? I have a Lightning Sky 2005 RR1, so with a locking nut it doesn't make as big a difference as your RR1T, but I'll take a look if you tell me what I'm looking for.

          I have 2003 SL2H and it has Gotoh tuners. Gotoh tuners have flare on the neck/shaft and no step between the base of the gear housing like Jinhos do.

            The Jin Ho's I've seen have 'Jin Ho' stamped on them and the Jackson logo'd Gotohs have 'Japan' stamped.

            I'll have to check my parts again, because I remember my JHs and Gotohs looking closer to identical than the examples shown.

            I've even got the Gotoh SG381 to comapare, but it'll be this weekend.
            96xxxxx, 97xxxxx and 98xxxxx serials oftentimes don't indicate '96, '97 and '98.
