Economy Covered Gear 6-In-Line Tuners

About This Item

Sometimes you simply need basic tuners that work! For 6-in-line pegheads.

• 14:1 ratio
• Fit 5/16"-diameter pegholes
• Press-fit bushings and screws included
• Set of 6
• Chrome


Installation Tips

Bushings: We recommend the Standard Peghole Reamer to cut smooth, perfectly round holes.

Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1711 Depth-stop Drill Bit (No.50 bit) for the pilot hole before installing these screws. Lubricate the screw threads with cutting lubricant (also wax or a bar of soap) to reduce friction and help them thread properly.

Best for the money

By

Verified Buyer


Tuners were exactly what I needed for an old Aria strat copy. Diagram measurements were exact and the screw holes lined up exactly where the old holes were. Don't be fooled by others cause 1-2mm difference and the tuners won't line up. Bushings were METAL, others tuners have plastic bushings which can bind when tuning. These are worth the extra money.

Carlo Robelli is now PLAYABLE !

Picked an old Carlo Robelli Strat Knockoff and it sounded and felt GREAT , BUT it wouldn't hold Tune , with these little inexpensive Tuners it holds tune and you wouldn't believe how it sounds now . (Sometimes you find a cheep guitar that just needs some loving care , you can find what you need at Stu-Mac .)

Sure ain't grovers, but they do work and are cost efficient for student guitars. Drop-in fit on Squire Strat

Econony Tuners

Put these on a student's mini squire with slipping knobs. They seemed too tight right out of the package, but once installed were fine. Note that the supplied bushings were slightly too big for the mini's peg holes, just used them with the existing bushings.

6-in-line

These would be perfect replacements for your cheap Epiphone Les Paul Special tuners as far as screw holes are concerned, but please note that they are 6-in-line and not 3-per-side. Beware.

Can't find a better deal.

These tuners are perfect replacements for basically any older guitar you may have laying around. These were the right size shaft for an old electric of mine, and better yet, all of the mounting holes lined right up. I've also used these economy style tuners building Cigar Box Guitars with excellent results. They're great little workhorses when you need something that will work hard forever without breaking the bank.

Not what I hoped

By

Verified Buyer


I needed to change the machines on my Squire Strat Affinity. I called Stew-Mac to see if they had any that would fit. I was told there were no lists as to what guitar any of the any of the machines fit. You had to take your chances. Luckily they provided a detailed drawing of the machine that looked dead on to the ones I have. Well I measured my existing machines and thought they would work. They did not fit. I ended up drilling a different screw hole to make them fit. The machines are very tight. They look like the originals and all are the same stiffness. Looks and measurements can be deceiving. The difference was small but not a fit as I hoped.

Seem to function fine. Canadian residents, by the time you pay shipping, delivery, HST and Duty, they will cost you.
