Gotoh Vintage Deluxe 3-on-Plate Tuners

About This Item

For solid pegheads. Direct-replacement steel-string tuners with vintage-style stamped plates and white plastic knobs.

Nickel plated, with nylon internal bushings for smooth operation. Complete set of 3-left, 3-right include press-fit peghead bushings and mounting screws.

15:1 ratio
1-3/8" string post spacing
11/32"-diameter pegholes required


Installation Tips

Bushings: We recommend the #2062 Bushing Reamer (.340" diameter) to cut a clean, accurate counterbore for a professional job. Fit the press-fit tuner bushings correctly so your tuners will work smoothly.

Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1713 Depth-stop Drill Bit (No.44 bit) for the pilot hole before installing these screws. Lubricate the screw threads with cutting lubricant (also wax or a bar of soap) to reduce friction and help them thread properly.

Spot on fit and look for '64 Gibson Melody Maker!

The old tuners were shot, cleaning and lubing didn't help much so I ordered these. I couldn't be more pleased! Exact drop-in fit, even the screw holes lined up. Did the brown shoe polish trick on the new white knobs to match the original aged tuners. Worked great. I'll finish these off with a little ferric choride to etch the shine off the tuner casings and we'll look just like 1964!

Awesome tuners, they fit every time and look absolutely period correct, customers always love them! Plain brown shoe polish on the super white buttons will stain them just enough. Even replaced the tuners on my '57 Les Paul Jr with these, cant go wrong here!

Perfect fit!

Replaced the tuners on my early 50's Supro Comet as the old tuner buttons had disintegrated (as they are wont to do).
Perfect fit.
StewMac's customer service and shipping is absolutely top notch!

Everything appeared period correct. When I removed the tuners I found that the ferrules were too large for the headstock. Had to use the old ones.

Good tuners but

Work well and look good. seams to be a little inconsistent in tension from one key to another and are very sensitive to small amount of turns, seams more like 10:1.

Fit Like A Glove

I bought these to replace a disintegrated set of tuners on a 1958 National Resosonic. They just dropped into place, and I didn't have to install the ferrels, as these tuners fit exactly. Only thing that detracts from the install is that the new tuners look too new - I'll have to stain the plastic to "age" them.

I had been given a 1949 Supro lap steel that was trashed both electronically and mechanically. After a quick search here...I found the EXACT parts I needed to restore my newest toy to 100% playing status. Thanks Stewart MacDonald for always being here with the right parts.
