Details

At last! Quality authentic style machines for slotted-peghead Martin, Stella, and similar 12-string guitars. Relic or bright nickel finishes.

Their simple open-gear 6-on-plate design will improve tuning without adding significant weight to the peghead. Available in bright nickel, or with Relic finish that adds an authentic look to vintage and reproduction instruments. Complete set for 12-string slotted peghead.

"For 20 years we've been dying for someone to manufacture tuners like these. People who build replica instruments or who do any restoration or repair work are just going to love these. Absolutely terrific, StewMac!"
— Frank Ford, Gryphon Stringed Instruments, Palo Alto CA

"Guys like me have waited a long time for these, and they're a dream come true. They're great — nice and tight, with a good gear ratio, and they allow me to keep the old-style spacing so I can have a headstock of the same dimensions as the originals."
— Todd Cambio, Fraulini Guitars

Great replacement

By Larry Threet from Lexington, SC

I recently restored a 1902-1904 Grunewald Harp Twelve Guitar. This was the forerunner of the twelve string guitars. The old tuners were in bad shape. But these tuners were an exact match and truly represented the style and age of the origional ones. Great job Stew Mac. Luthier Larry Threet, Lexington SC

A needed fix

These are a great replacement for those early Martin 12 string slot head tuners that are almost always virtually non-functioning. Makes those old beauties a breeze to tune up.

Nice tuners but...

Those are nice tuners, a bit expensive and be ware of the screws - they are very soft! don't push them too much, they will be damaged

excellent

These look beautiful. Very high quality. Ended up not needing them for the job but I'm sure they would function well. Saving them for something nice.
