I just installed a set of Sperzels from the early 90s and they are 3/3.
I've had a couple that were 3+3 too. All three of the sets I have right now are 2+2+2 though. I wish I could find another set of the 6 individual tuners for the stagger. Those really did a great job of not needing any trees at all. Plus they just looked cool as all get out even though it was a really subtle detail to look at.
I agree, although I've never seen them, it's a fact that symmetry is appealing. While likely not an absolute concept it hold true for me.
Schaller lockers on both my old Strat Plus guitars are 3 + 3. Schaller machined the the G-B-e string tuners to have the string through holes and wind area grooves lower on the tuner posts.
It annoyed me that many production Fender guitars are 2 long and 4 short tuners but the aftermarket Fender locking tuners were only available in 3 and 3, likely due to the supplier.
I ordered an individual short locking tuner from a Fender dealer to add to the set I bought.
Now I also have 2 long and 4 short locking tuners!
I prefer the tuner assisting with the break angle.
I've also added an additional short tuner for the D string on both my Strats with locking tuners. The Fender/Schaller locking tuners I added to my 2000 Am Series Strat (way back when) are all short (as are the current Ultra and the former Elite Strat tuners).
I just installed new locking Fender tuners over the weekend and they are staggered 2+4.
I bought a set of inline Fender Locking tuners about 3-4- years ago for one of my Strats. They are $48 right now at Sweetwater.com . Just looked them up. Where are you looking ?
You misunderstod what I meant by 3/3 I think. I should have been clearer but was lazy. I meant 3 long posts /3 short posts.
I like the Gotoh HAP-M versions, which have height adjustable posts and are locking.
3+3 Fender Schaller's installed on the new Strat. No string tree need, no problems.
The 2020 Player Deluxe comes with all short lockers.
