Updating an old guitar

Updating an old guitar

This may sound dumb, but I have an old Gibson Southern Jumbo almost 50 years old. It still has the original tuning pegs on it which are very hard to turn. I've been thinking about replacing them with a set of Grover tuning pegs. But I am worried about it affecting the value of the guitar. Also I am not sure exactly what tuning pegs (ratio wise) would be good if I decide to change them out. Does anyone out there have any thoughts about this? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
