Straight string pull eliminates winding. The locking knob on top secures the string to prevent slippage. String installation is fast and easy, and the tuning action is impressively smooth. Set of 6, instructions included.

Single pin mount keeps tuner from rotating, no mounting screws needed.
Requires 10mm (13/32")-diameter pegholes.

Minimum headstock thickness: 9/16" (14.30mm)
Maximum headstock thickness: 43/64" (16.89mm)
Maximum string gauge: 0.060" (1.52mm).

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.

Great Tuners!

These are great tuners. Easy to install on the Firebird. Definite difference in tone. Best of all they tune with precision and stay in tune. The pins can be removed but not without effort(not reusable), I chose to remove them in case I wanted to replace originals. The chrome of the tuners do not match the nickle plate of the bridge and pickups and is very noticeable. The chrome is blue in color in comparison.

Only the best!!

One by one, all my guitars get the Steinberger treatment. This one is a MIJ reverse neck (Heavy Flamed)Warmoth body, LHS roller nut, Kahler 7300 Tremolo. I can't tell you how awesome these gear-less tuners are. No need to butcher your neck with a locking nut! Do you like to stay in tune no matter what? I play the you know what out this guitar....rock solid performance to say the least. I have these on three guitars and one more set is on the way. Go check out a new Gibson Flying V. They use these tuners and so should you. There is nothing to compare these tuners too......nothing!!!

Simply the best locking tuner bar none!

I've installed these tuneres on two of my guitars. The first is a custom Strat with a lefty neck. What can I say.....smooth, accurate and simple. The second is a 2002 Firebird VII. Cool banjo tuners but they won't stay in tune. I loved everything about the bird .....action, tone, tremolo, everything except the piece of s--t banjo tuners. The Steinberger gearless tuners effing fantastic. All tuneing problems are gone and the "Bird" is now my fav ax. Thanks Stew Mac

They work GREAT!

Bought a set of these for a custom build with a reverse banana headstock. Never had an easier time installing a set of tuners, and they WORK LIKE THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO, with any string guage, and there are no unsightly keys sticking out of the bottom edge of the peghead--since the neck is made of heavily figured flame maple with a cocobolo fretboard, this is a real plus! I'd put them on the rest of my guitars, but I never play any of them anymore, so what's the use? A beautiful product!

Great tuners

I have installed these tuners on two custom guitar builds so far and a third will soon follow in the next coming weeks. These are of amazing quality and look great in my opinion. I highly recommend these for any project! Here is a neck-thru hollow-body Rockabilly Strat Style custom I built 12 years ago with these fine tuners installed. You will love how easy they make stringing and tuning your guitar.
