Another Locking Tuners on JTV-89 question

I saw this post using the Search function:

I'venever had a guitar with tuners on the bottom of the headstock before. Intuitively, I thought this set up would require left-handed tuners. The post above seems to confirm it.

Has anyone installed locking tuners on an 89? If so, which brand and model did you use and are they left-handed? I've also seen some listed as "reverse."  Are the pegs staggered in height?

Thanks.

Found this thread that confirms left-handed tuners are needed:

Oneposter suggests the Planet Waves tuners but it seems that you'd have to buy to sets of L/Rtuners and use the 6 left-handed ones.

I'm still interested in hearing if anyone has put locking tuners on an 89. I haven't found a thread with pictures or notes on a successful installation.
