Specs
They feature authentic steel baseplates and white plastic knobs, plus 15:1 gear ratio for better tuning than the originals.

Golden Age tuners are exclusively from Stewart-MacDonald, made with our eye for details and exact specifications.

"People who build replica instruments or who do restoration or repair work are just going to love these." —Frank Ford, vintage instrument repair expert

Golden Age tuners are the rebirth of popular early 20th Century tuning machine designs, featuring simple steel plates and open gears. Replacements for the originals have long been sought by collectors and repairmen, to restore older guitars and improve their tuning. Our special relic nickel-finished versions complement vintage hardware and add an authentic look to reproduction guitars.

Bright nickel tuners have original-shape white plastic knobs. Relic nickel tuners have the same knobs, but with a matte finish.

15:1 gear ratio for improved tuning
Vintage-style riveted worm supports
.236" (6.00mm) string post diameter
Press-fit peghead bushings
Original mounting screw spacing (screws incuded)
1-3/8" (34.93mm) string post spacing

Also available to fit slotted pegheads.

Note: Plate-mounted tuners can't work efficiently if the pegholes are improperly aligned. Our Tuner Drill Jig ensures the correct spacing for accurate tuning.

"The Golden Age Restoration tuners are really great. I have just put them onto my 1929 Gibson L-1...I like the fact that someone went to the trouble of making them look right." —John Evans, Brussels Belgium

"Great tuners with the right look and feel! The only thing different about them is that they are better made and more functional." —Richard Barnes, Pomona CA

To be sure these tuners fit your instrument, compare your existing machines and peghole dimensions to our listed specs to help determine the best replacement.

The wait is over!

My "Banner Head" Gibson LG-2 lost its original tuners. The original tuners were open-geared and exact replacements could not be had with the plate footprint to match the original. At least not until now. With the relic finish bent tab 3 on a plate tuners I have an exact replacement that looks almost original and works better than I expected. They are great.

In Harmony

I recently put a set of these "Relic Nickel" turners on a '60s Harmony Master arch top guitar. The original turners were shot. This set was the closest to the originals that I could find. Now my Harmony will stay in-tune and string adjustments are easy. Nice quality tuners, while keeping the vintage look.
