Product Details

Pre-war Kluson style tuners reborn! Replica 3-on-plate tuners with "bent tab" worm supports, as made by Kluson from the 1930s to the '70s.

They feature authentic steel baseplates and white plastic knobs, plus 15:1 gear ratio for better tuning than the originals.

Golden Age tuners are exclusively from Stewart-MacDonald, made with our eye for details and exact specifications.

"People who build replica instruments or who do restoration or repair work are just going to love these." —Frank Ford, vintage instrument repair expert

Golden Age tuners are the rebirth of popular early 20th Century tuning machine designs, featuring simple steel plates and open gears. Replacements for the originals have long been sought by collectors and repairmen, to restore older guitars and improve their tuning. Our special relic nickel-finished versions complement vintage hardware and add an authentic look to reproduction guitars.

Bright nickel tuners have original-shape white plastic knobs. Relic nickel tuners have the same knobs, but with a matte finish.

15:1 gear ratio for improved tuning
Vintage-style riveted worm supports
.236" (6.00mm) string post diameter
Original mounting screw spacing (screws incuded)
1-3/8" (34.93mm) string post spacing

Also available to fit solid pegheads.

Note: Plate-mounted tuners can't work efficiently if the pegholes are improperly aligned. Our Tuner Drill Jig ensures the correct spacing for accurate tuning.

"The Golden Age Restoration tuners are really great. I have just put them onto my 1929 Gibson L-1...I like the fact that someone went to the trouble of making them look right." —John Evans, Brussels Belgium

"Great tuners with the right look and feel! The only thing different about them is that they are better made and more functional." —Richard Barnes, Pomona CA

A change for the better -

The cast pot metal tuners on my new Recording King Tricone where not good. I swapped them for a set of Golden Age Restoration Tuners - Oh so very nice now! The first time I used Golden Age Tunes was on my A22 Rickenbacher lap steel, perfect match.

Nice Tuners, great price

I bought these to replace the tuners on my new Holloway Harp guitar. They fit perfectly without any adjustment and are superior to the originals. Tuning is smooth and accurate. Highly recommended for direct replacement on the Holloway.
