Schaller Locking 6-In-Line Guitar Machines

About This Item

Smooth 16:1 gear ratio, with a rear thumbscrew to lock the string. Pin mount on the tuner back keeps it from rotating, no mounting screws needed.

• 16:1 ratio
• 10mm (13/32") diameter pegholes required
• Removable metal knobs
• Set of 6

Staggered string posts:
The Schaller Locking 6-in-line tuners feature staggered string post holes. The tuners with the holes higher above the face of the peghead are used on the E, A, and D strings, and the shorter hole posts are for the G, B, and E strings. This allows the strings to have a steeper angle off the nut than with traditional tuners — eliminating the need for string trees.


Installation Tips

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.

Caution!!  These DO NOT fit a standard Fender Telecaster or Stratocaster

By

Verified Buyer


Let me start out with I've always had great experiences with Stewmac and their shipping department has their stuff together.
Now for this experience... bought these "Schaller Locking 6-In-Line Guitar Machines" as a drop in replacement for my American Standard Telecaster. The reviews are confusing... alluding to them working on a Fender strat. They are too small... now I'm forced to return them and pay the $12.99 postage, not to mention having to wait for my credit. The person I spoke with on the phone was not knowledgable or helpful.
After doing some research on the Schaller website, the "Original F-Series Standard" are the drop-in replacement (Schaller Item number10560220.01.36). Stewmac does not carry them. As many Fender strats and teles as there are out there, I don't understand why Stewmac doesn't carry them?

Drop-in replacement for Squier Mini Strat

By

Verified Buyer


These were perfect drop-in replacements for Squier Mini Strat tuners. No comparison as far as quality; these are professional machines. No additional drilling required. To be honest locking tuners are overkill, but I couldn't find non-locking tuners that matched up.

Good quality

Bought for an extra neck I received with a T-type kit. Got some Fender locking tuners but the locating pins were in the wrong location, so I got these from Stew-Mac. I had to ream the peg holes a bit. but they fit fine. I had to have the wife thread the strings-the G,B, and fine E(my eyes are too old for fine work) and the locking tuners work great. I think that a string tree will not be necessary. Thank you Stew-Mac!

I installed them yesterday on my custom "Nocaster" and love them. I now have them on most of my guitars.

Finally! Legitimate German Made Locking Tuners!

By

Verified Buyer


After discovering the cause of nearly all my tuning woes is the result of cheap Chinese made "licensed"(I guess?)Schaller "style" tuners I wound up once again back here at Stew Mac. Was kind of worried at first but "Made in Germany" is stamped into the underside of these tuners. These tuners do not slip. To clear up any confusion these specific Schaller locking 6 in line tuners have TWO pins on their undersides that keep them in place as is clearly shown in the diagram..

Great tuners - some drilling may be required.

By

Verified Buyer


I bought these for a 2013 Fender Standard Tele (MiM). I hoped it would just be a few turns of a socket wrench and done. No such luck. The stock Fender tuners have two posts to anchor them; the Schaller has one. So, you need to drill a hole for each. It's not a big deal - just keep in mind that it's not a 5-minute swap. But once they're in, you can change strings in a fraction of the time - no string-winder required. Sweet!

These tuners is the real deal. I've replaced all Fender original tuners with those. Couldn't be happier!
