These fine reproductions feature old style stamped gear housings, but have modern improved 15:1 gearing for smoother, more precise action.

Set of 6-in-line.

The oval knobs on these tuners are just like the ones found on electric and acoustic guitars manufactured in the late 1940s to present.

Includes mounting screws and round press-fit peghead bushings. Peghole spacing is 4-11/16" (119.06mm). 11/32" (8.73mm)-diameter pegholes required.

Also available: Special conversion bushings for installing tuning machines into 3/8" or 10mm pegholes, without redrilling.

6-in-line locking tuners, which are the perfect upgrade for old or new Fenders with "Kluson-style" tuners — they're a direct retrofit!

Gotoh Vintage-style Oval Knob Tuners 6-In-Line

By MagicBiddie from East Texas
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Very nice tuner upgrade when installed on import guitars. On my recent install on a Squire guitar, I had to use the original screws and make slight adjustments to the tuner bodies (filing) as the original holes do not line up. Be aware.

Solid tuners

The best vintage ovals I found till date. Could be little smoother. Does a solid job keeping the guitar in tune.

Gotoh Vintage-style Oval Knob Tuners 6-In-Line review

I bought this set of tuners as an upgrade for my MIM Strat. The tuners are great! The screws supplied are GARBAGE!!! Every screw stripped out super easily- even with pilot holes pre-drilled. I couldn't believe how soft the metal was. Luckily, I had enough screws lying around to finish the job.
I don't mean to be a complainer. I love StewMac. I was just surprised that this was even an issue. Be prepared to supply your own screws.

Lousy Screws

By Bubba from Atlanta, GA
(Customer's Reviews) Saturday, November 09, 2013

The tuners are fine, but the screws are awful -- four of them broke off in the pilot holes. No wonder StewMac is offering a screw extractor/plug cutter kit now. If you order these tuners, order after-market screws at the same time. Life's too short to spend time drilling out broken screws.

Can't really review

These are very different from the tuners that came on my guitar, and in order to put them on, I will have to fill the old holes and redrill. I think I'm going to have to take it to a shop. They seem okay. They're FAR thinner, and don't look as solid as the ones on the guitar now (MIM strat). I have not decided for certain that I want to replace the ones on the guitar. They seem to work fine....

Gotoh Vintage Oval 6 In-Line

Excellent tuners. Very little play, hold tune very well. Vintage look, modern feel.

Great tuners!

I love Gotoh's version of these tuners. I needed these for my Tele-assembly project. Can't do this stuff without my Stew-Mac tools and parts.

 Gotoh tuners great but bad screws

By Chris Y from Corona
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, August 17, 2012

Great tuners and very good price! But, bad screws. Broken two screws with proper holes drilled and still with just a little tension they break off. Even so, still love Stew Mac!

My absolute favorites

The best vintage tuners possible, available at a very reasonable price point... what's not to love?

Great price and tuner plus excellent tech support

By Stephen T. from Atlanta, GA
(Customer's Reviews) Saturday, June 16, 2012

Tech support's suggestion was to drill the very top of the pilot screw hole out slightly larger to fit the collar of the screw (which is slightly larger than the screw threads), worked like a charm.
