Hi Folks,

I have a (I think) '84 Goldstar Strat that I've had for years (it was my first electric).

Next time I change the strings, I'd like to swap the machine heads for modern, locking ones. But, ideally, I'd prefer not to make irreversible changes to the guitar, so thinking of using the Hipshot Griplock ones.

Does anyone happen to know if these guitars were 8.5 or 10mm holes for the machine heads?

(I know I can measure the holes, but right now that would mean sacrificing a set of strings.....).

Thanks,

Chris

8,5 (up to 9) mm holes should have inserts on the top face of the headstock
10 mm holes shouls have nuts
