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

Exclusively from Stewart-MacDonald, 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.

Relic nickel tuners have cream plastic knobs with a matte finish.
Bright nickel tuners have cream plastic knobs.

15:1 gear ratio for improved tuning
Vintage-style riveted worm supports on steel baseplates
.236"-diameter (6mm) string post
Press-fit peghead bushings
Mounting screws included

"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

"Superb function, aesthetics and detailing--these are clearly better made than the originals. A long-vacant niche is now filled at last." —Paul Hostetter, luthier

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.

Outstanding replacements

These tuners look and work fantastic. These actually work better than the originals for me. The relic'd versions I purchased suit my ‘46 SJ perfectly. The buttons are an off-white or cream color which gives a beautiful vintage appearance. I’m very satisfied with both the feel and look of these.

Great replacements

I used these to replace originals on a '46 Rickenbacher Lap Steel. Needed enlargement of the mounting holes, but a definite upgrade. Photo shows originals. Good match, very good quality!

Tuner replacement 36 Martin 0-17

After a long search for suitable replacement tuners for my '36 Martin, and the high cost of available original units, these tuners worked out well. Relocation of one mounting hole and a slight reaming for the bushings was all that was required.

Rick replacements

These relic nickel Golden Age tuners are a very good choice to replace original open gear tuners on my B6 Rick. lap steel. Quite close to the originals.

Nice product, good quality

I used these on a 1962 Harmony Stratotone H49 as a replacement for the missing original Waverly open back tuners. They have a similar look and captured the original vibe. I might choose the relic version next time as the nickel is very shiny but I was happy with the way it looked.

Perfect!

Purchased this set to retrofit into my 1944 000-18...the ones without ferrules due to war-time restrictions. Waverlys would've worked, but I really wanted the bent tab of this set. Looks great, works great!

Great replacement or new builds

What a great choice! Footprint & holes match Klusons. Open back, finish, & buttons look great on vintage Gibsons. Turn well and are well built. Thanks for not putting bright white buttons on 'em!

Golden Age Tuners

Nice looking and work well. They give the small bodied Walnut Guitar I built a very tasteful look.

Excellent Quality Tuners

Having spent countless hours over the years digging in parts boxes trying to match up gears, screws, baseplates, buttons, etc...the new Golden Age tuners are a huge relief! I really love the look and light weight of these tuners and the fact that they are better made and work better than the originals did when they were new! Keep 'em coming!

Golden Age Beauties.

As soon as I opened the box I was delighted. Checking the function, I noticed uniform turning tension. The knobs have a nice matte finish. Very vintage looking indeed. Superb.
