Golden Age Restoration Tuners for Solid Peghead Guitar with Engraved Bell-end

Pre-war tuners reborn! Our replica 3-on-plate tuners with distinctive engraved motif, as supplied by Waverly to guitar manufacturers from the 1920s to the '40s.

They feature authentic steel baseplates and ivoroid 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.

  • 15:1 gear ratio for improved tuning
  • Vintage-style riveted worm supports
  • Handsome grained ivoroid or matte black knobs
  • .236" (6.00mm) string post diameter
  • Press-fit peghead bushings
  • Original mounting screw spacing (screws incuded)
  • 1-3/8" (34.93mm) string post spacing
  • Bright nickel or relic nickel finishes

Also available to fit slotted 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

Smooth tuners on restoration or new instrument

I put a set of these on a new instrument with a hand rubbed 1930s style sunburst (Stew Mac tobacco brown/vintage amber cant be beat!) and it looks great. Recommended

I use these on my new, vintage-style guitars. They work great and have the look. I hope you continue to offer the ivoroid buttons, and ditch the plain white ones.

2507-N Bright nickel, ivoroid knob

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I purchased the bright nickel tuners so they can age on their own, along with the trapeze tailpiece that was polished up. These went on a mid-sixties Framus Wander 5/1-50 parlor guitar and were perfect for it.They're much better tuners than it originally came with and have made this fine little old guitar back into the 'player' it is.Great product for those oldies out there that need a little updating in the hardware dept. Thanks StewMac
