Gotoh Keystone-style 3+3 Tuning Machines

About This Item

Featuring cast housings and metal keystone knobs, these tuners are suitable for many Les Paul and other similar guitars. For 3-left/3-right pegheads.

Precision 16:1 ratio, sealed lubrication, cast housings and removable metal knobs make these some of the finest tuners available. They feature a metal keystone-style knob as found on many modern electric guitars. 10mm (13/32")-diameter pegholes required. Sets include mounting screws and threaded hex bushings.


Installation Tips

Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1711 Depth-stop Drill Bit (No.50 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.

WAY better than OEM

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I bought a new Gibson J-15 about 3 months ago, that came with Grover mini tuners that were junk...first time I ever had problems with Grover tuners. Finally got fed up & replaced the Grovers with these Gotohs (in gold, to match the silk-screened 'Gibson' headstock logo). The Gotohs are smooth, positive, capable of fine-tuning w/ 16:1 ratio and the keystone buttons have a great Gibson vibe. Far superior to the stock Grovers in every way.

The only caveat is that you will need to drill new pilot holes for the tabs on these, however the tab covers most of the holes from the Grovers (they probably would have covered all of them completely if Gibson had aligned the old ones properly in the first place), so I didn't feel the need to fill the old holes.

I've had similar experience with Gotohs on a couple of my other guitars...I'm sold...these are my new go-to tuners from here on out.

I ordered these to give my Ibanez AS73 a different look. I've used Gotoh brand tuners before, and wanted these for my Ibanez. They look great, stays in tune and no modifications needed for my instrument. For visuals, I added a modified LP truss rod cover. Fast shipping and awesome service!

These are fantastic and look and work extremely well. Very smooth gears.

A vast improvement.

Prefer the look of these over the stock Grover "butterbean" tuners that came with my Epi Genesis. The solid keystone knobs add a bit more heft to the headstock but don't affect the guitar's balance adversely. The action of these feels about the same as the Grovers but tuning stability has improved.

Well it's been eight years or so...

...eight years of been spoilt by these excellent tuners, and snobbish towards anything else. Buy them before Gotoh realises that the price is so terribly wrong... Thanks Stewmac!

Easily installed on an SX LP copy; far smoother and tighter than the cheap original tuners.

Great Tuners!

I recently put a set of theses tuners on a new build. They are solid, quality construction in an attractive design. I've used the more expensive 510's and they're great but these are just as good and I really like the keystone look over the more modern styles. They've been in use for over a month and stay in tune great with my Gotoh hardtail bridge. You won't be dissappointed with these tuners!

Better tuning

I have been using Gotoh tuning machines for a few years now. They are my prefered choice. Reliable, more presise, handle well aming tuning a snap. I put the keystone style ones on my B.C. Rich eagle. Improved the look and the tuning.
