Pre-war tuners reborn! These fine quality tuners add a vintage touch to your 12-string Martin or similar guitar with solid peghead.
The simple 6-on-plate design and 15:1 open gears add less weight than most sets of 12 individual tuners, giving the guitar a more balanced feel.
"People who build replica instruments or who do restoration or repair work are just going to love these."
—Frank Ford, vintage instrument repair expert
Also available for slotted pegheads.

Bushings: We recommend the #2066 Bushing Reamer (.290" diameter) to cut a clean, accurate counterbore for a professional job. Fit the press-fit tuner bushings correctly so your tuners will work smoothly.
Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1714 Depth-stop Drill Bit (3/32" 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.
