Sperzel locking tuners for SG 2013 Std?

Hi guys, I'll buy a SG 2013 Std model. I'll buy it overseas and I want to buy at the same time locking tuners for the guitar. Im looking into the Sperzel locking tuners because a lot of pro players are using them with success (like Guthrie Govan in his Suhr). I need to know if the Sperzels would work with the SG. These are the locking tuners Sperzel Tuner 3/3 Trimlock BK - Thomann UK Cyberstore

Thank you for the information

I love the Sperzel trimlock tuners, but you would have to drill new holes to accommodate them. No big deal - they'll work fine. But if you prefer to not alter your instrument, you might consider the TonePros TPKB3L Series Locking Tuners. TonePros-Kluson

you might find the sperzels, alter the balance of your instrument and make it headstock heavy.

I've used the Kluson vintage style locking tuners for more than 3 years now and love them. Stable, locking key with authentic vintage styling is a beautiful thing.

SG's are neck-heavy anyways. I'm not sure if the additional weight of the Sprezels would make a significant difference, but it couldn't help... Locking Kluson-style tuners make more sense, because they're a direct replacement, and they are surely lighter in weight.

I can tell you I bought a 6.5 lb Agile SG copy, it came with Grovers which really made the guitar headstock heavy, I swapped them out for Klusons and now the guitar balances much better.
