Default tuners for a rainsong

Just got my new concert parlor. am very happy. it does seem a little neck heavy though some am thinking about swapping out the Chrome plated Gotohs for something lighter.

Was wondering if anyone has recommendations?
thanks

I am interested in this too. It is my only criticism of my Rainsong Shorty, it is definitely neck heavy. I have resorted to tying my strap at the headstock rather than the heel, which makes it much more comfortable when standing. The body is so light, I wonder if the heft of the headstock contributes something to the wonderful tone?

Mine is neck heavy as well. Noticeably so. I don't think swapping out tuners is going to do much though, much of the weight is in the truss rod hardware.

Open back tuners would save some weight, I'd probably pick Gotohs.
