Would locking tuners be helpful on a locking nut and bridge guitar?

Hey Peeps. I was wondering if putting a set of locking tuners on for example a Jackson guitar than has a locking nut and bridge be helpful in tuning stability?? Any advise would be appreciated.Cool

On a guitar with a locking trem system that includes a locking nut, locking tuners would offer no improvement in tuning stability at all. The only benefit you would gain is it would take a little less time to change out a string. That is all. Nothing more.

The mind is like a parachute...
...It only works when its open.

Thanks for the info Tracy. Yep, it's quite obvious that from the tuner to the locking nut is where the strings are supposed to be locked down. No movement on either side of the nut. I was pondering it though because I haven't seen a double locking trem guitar with locking tuners. Thanks again, and Rock on!
