Waverly Guitar Tuners with Dark Tortoise Knobs for Slotted Pegheads

About This Item

The choice of renowned guitarmakers for their finest instruments.

These Waverly machines are adorned with our specially blended dark tortoise material, a remarkable simulation of natural tortoiseshell. Light passes through, and it looks amazingly like protected hawksbill turtle shell. A beautiful addition to a fine guitar!

These sets have straight single-hole 1/4"-diameter brass string shafts for 3-left/3-right slotted pegheads. Screws included.

With Waverly tuners, your guitar plays in tune and stays in tune. Waverly's patented design combines stainless steel with bronze to create smooth, non-slip tuning. The perfect replacement tuners for valued instruments, Waverly machines are handmade to fit precisely without drilling on older Martin and Gibson guitars. Manufacturers such as C.F. Martin, Gibson, Collings, Santa Cruz, Huss & Dalton, Sams, and Bourgeois choose Waverlys for their finest instruments.

Direct replacement design: No additional mounting holes to drill when replacing similar vintage machines on older Martin & Gibson guitars.

More efficient operation & more precise tuning: 16:1 gear ratio. Patented worm tension bushing eliminates looseness.

Long life with less wear: Stainless steel worm gears have twin bushings. String post gears are machined from bronze alloy; more durable than brass.

Authentic knobs and string posts: Dark tortoise knobs resemble hawksbill turtle shell, but are a durable non-animal alternative. String posts are nickel or gold-plated brass.

Pricey but worth it!

These were a drop-in replacement for a Taylor 512ce 12-fret - no adjustments needed. They are as smooth as advertised, allowing greater precision than the factory tuners despite the lower ratio. They also hold nicely when lowering pitch - no more dipping below and coming back up. Luxury price, luxury experience. Now I'm loathing the tuners on my other guitars...

Beautiful addition to my slotted headstock. Got the gold/tortoise version and they are very nice looking and, of course (because they're Waverly) work great. StewMac = fast shipping too
