    hi i just bought a used schecter Hellraiser c1 and on the seriesnumber i can see it is made in 2008..
    But it came with grover tuners,and they look original..but without locking mechanism..what Year did the Hellraiser come with locking tuners? Are there any locking tuners that fit the guitar without drilling a Hole? Prefer to have tuners that is not far from the original so they cover the markes in the paint and not makeing new marks..
    Also black chrome is prefered
    Edit; sorry,i thought i posted in the standard guitars

    I think Schecter started in 2009 putting their branded locking tuners on their guitars. My C-1 Blackjack was made in 2009 and has the locking tuners. Can't comment on fitting replacements as the schecter tuners are actually quite good and I didn't see any need to replace them.

    Does it have a floyd?

    I think they omit locking tuners on the floyds unless I'm mistaken.

    Yeah late 2000s/early 2010s is when I remember companies leaving Grover tuners and licenesed Floyd Roses in favor of OEM locking tuners and Floyd Rose Specials.

    Schecter switched to locking OEM tuners in 2009, and in 2010 they switched to Floyd Rose from the OEM and Gotoh units.

    Probably, me personally, I wouldn't care that much if at all. Your best bet then is to find locking versions of the same Grover tuners, where you could use the existing holes. Don't know off hand, you probably need to take some measurements and compare.
