Golden Age Restoration Tuners for Solid Peghead Guitar with Square-end

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

Pre-war style tuners reborn!
Exclusively from Stewart-MacDonald, our replica 3-on-plate tuners featuring square worm supports on rectangular steel plates. Their improved 15:1 gear ratio provides better tuning than the originals, and our popular relic nickel finish complements vintage hardware.

Short string post also available: Original-style short string posts made especially for tapered-thickness solid pegheads, such as pre-war Gibson® L-0, L-00, J-45, J-35 and Nick Lucas guitars.

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. They add an authentic look to reproduction guitars.

  • 15:1 gear ratio for improved tuning
  • Vintage-style riveted worm supports
  • Original-shape knobs; relic nickel tuners have knobs with a matte finish
  • .236" (6.00mm) string post diameter
  • Press-fit peghead bushings
  • Original mounting screw spacing (screws included)
  • 1-3/8" (34.93mm) string post spacing

Also available to fit slotted pegheads.

TIP: 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

I replaced the original tuners on a 1940's Harmony Archtop. The new tuners installed without any issues and performed better than expected. Well worth the money!

First, sorry for my poor english spoken.
The Golden Age restoration tuners fits just as originals for my Lapsteel Oahu 229K of 1939. She look like a young Lady again I order also the scallop end for my Gibson EH 125 and afer a little more work, it will be perfect. Thanks a lot. Great product who stay in tune and look fantastic,"as" the real one. Patrick

They are a great match for the vintage style instruments I am building, at a fair price for the quality. I haven't put strings in them yet, but I don't expect any issues.
