Silverhead: That was my thinking, that'd be silly to need a screwdriver. I must be missing something. Last night when looking at this, locking tuners never crossed my mind, so I could've overlooked the obvious, but I would hope not something like the thumbscrews. 


From the photos I've seen, my tuners look like someone forgot to add the knobs if such a thing is possible.

I have Grover locking rotomatics on my 59 (but I put them on myself), I LOVE them!
The Grover's don't have the knob on the back, they use an internal cam mechanism which lock on the string as you turn the tuner.
Sometimes the high e gets stuck and there is a slot in the end of the tuning peg you can turn with a flat screwdriver to un-jam it.
I have only had this happen when using really light gauges.

I don't think any of the JTV guitars have come standard with these though... But it almost sounds like what you have...
