Default Grover Sta-tites 18-1

Iíve used these on a couple of my Blueridge guitars, and they work fairly well. When I look on Ebay some are made in China, and some are made in Korea. Which do you think would be better quality.

I've used dozens of sets of the Grover Deluxe Sta-tite open frame tuners. Never had a bad one, but DO make sure you purchase the cast base Deluxes. There's no comparison to the cheaper bent tab Grover Sta-tites.

I also normally pull the cast buttons and replace them with black ebony or black ABS buttons.

Thanks for the tip Rudy4. I figured there must be something that was different on the Grover copies. I checked the old set I had pulled of one of my Blueridges, and sure enough it had the bent up side tabs. Now I know what to look for.
