Gotoh Compact Bass Tuner, 2L+2R Set

About This Item

Enclosed-gear tuners for smaller pegheads, with 7/16"-diameter string posts and threaded hex bushings. 9/16"-diameter pegholes required.

Precision 20:1 gear ratio with sealed lubrication, cast housings and metal knobs. Set of 4, for 2-left/2-right pegheads. Mounting screws included.

Also sold individually for 5 or 6-string basses, or for asymmetric pegheads.

Pilot holes required: Installing delicate screws such as these into hard maple requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend using a 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.

Gotoh GB707 not GB7

(Customer's Reviews)

These are being used to replace the Gotoh cheap knock off GB7 look alike machine heads on my made in PRC (Peoples Republic of China) Dean 5 string acoustic bass. The posts are of greater diameter but fit the holes drilled in the head stock a lot tighter. I have found that they have stabilized the neck a lot better now that i have worked with them for awhile. The mounting threads on the old ones were very poor and the machine heads would shift. Even though I replaced 1 with a Gotoh GB7 from the music store to stabilize the E string i will be ordering another 1 for that one soon as these look great and are generally meatier looking.


Great replacements for Epiphone Basses

(Customer's Reviews)

I've used these as upgrade replacements on the following Epiphone basses: El Capitan, Accubass and the Explorer. They fit like a glove with no drilling or reaming needed.


Perfect match for Fender acoustic bass

(Customer's Reviews)

I bought these to match the muted appearance that black nylon wrapped strings give my acoustic bass, and they look great.
The only reason it wasn't 5 stars is because the supplied black screws were smaller than the original screws and they provided exactly one per tuner, so no mistakes. The fit problem was easily solved by toothpicks.
