I agree with BW's obsevations above. My near-30 yr. old Lowden has Gotohs and they've worked just fine but Waverlys are just plain better.

Bridge makes a good point about nuts. All luthiers are not created equal and nuts have to be slotted properly to work well (and a little graphite doesn't hurt). Having the nut checked out by a pro may be the best option.
