The SX tuners on my stl50 look like pings. I wouldn't be surprised if they came out of the same factory.

That's what they appear to be on mine as well. I've got after-market Pings on two old guitars I fixed up and they work fine.

 

It's more likely that the nut, bridge, or neck relief is the culprit with any tuning issues.

I don't know - the Pings on my other guitars, compared to stock SX tuners, feel a bit smoother. The tuners on my SX '57 feel a bit gritty. Maybe there's a "cure" someone can offer so we wouldn't have to replace the tuners, especially if they may be both Pings?

I replaced mine with vintage style klusen look a likes. Stew mac & guitarfetish stock them, though you also need the conversion bushings and a careful hand to drill the countersunk holes.

That is one of the things I was impressed with on my SX. The tuners have been very smooth and stable. Much better than on my Squier 51.

 

I don't know if you take them off if there is anyplace to stick some grease in like on Klusens.
