A set of these pegs on my Prust fretless has increased its tunability 100% and they look just like "fiddle-style" friction pegs. Fairly easy to install but I did have to modify the banjo a bit. The Prust has a pretty thick peghead (3/4 inch). The pegs would work with that thickness but I wanted a bit more of the ends exposed so I bandsawed about 1/4 inch off the thickness of the peghead.. A little oil finish and no ones the wiser. The hole for the 5th string peg was too large for the new peg so I plugged it with a dowel and redrilled it. Available peg sizes and instructions found here: http://www.lessonsinlutherie.com/PlanetaryPegs.html
