Specs
They feature authentic steel baseplates and ivoroid 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.

"One of the goals of the John Renbourn Custom Artist Edition guitar is to reflect the classy simplicity of early Martin instruments. Golden Age tuners provided us with a high quality, economically-priced and highly appropriate choice!" —Dick Boak, Martin Guitars

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.

  • 15:1 gear ratio for improved tuning
  • Vintage-style riveted worm supports
  • Handsome grained ivoroid knobs; relic nickel tuners have knobs with a matte finish
  • .236" (6.00mm) string post diameter
  • Original mounting screw spacing (screws incuded)
  • 1-3/8" (34.93mm) string post spacing
  • Bright nickel or relic nickel finishes

Also available to fit solid 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.

nice product

I really like the look and function of these tuners. Perfect for a vintage instrument. I do agree with the other reviewer that the top of the tuner is short, leaving old screw mounting holes to be filled and touched up.

Golden Age Restoration Engraved Tuners Revisited

I am upgrading my review to 4 stars. Most vintage guitars need some degree of touch-up, so this is a minor inconvenience when compared to the extremely high quality of these tuners.

Golden Age Tuners - Flawed Perfection

These are beautiful, precise tuners (which I WILL use on my handmade guitars) that have one noticeable flaw: they need to be 1/8" longer on the upper end. I recently replaced the original tuners on a 1960's Brazilian D-35S with a set of these. But they were not long enough to cover the outline and screw hole of the original tuners on the upper ends. I used them anyway, and told the customer that I could touch it up in the future, if he wanted. Otherwise, they would earn 5 stars, but only 3 1/2 for now...
