Fit, finish and function are great


Verified Buyer

I bought these tuners to replace the worn out tuners on my fiancé's Gibson ES-120T. Her dad bought her the guitar when she was a child, and she's had it ever since. The original tuners had catches and dead spots and it generally felt like there was sand in the gears. I chose not to get the 3-on-plate tuners of more modern construction that would require counter-boring the headstock from the back. This item is a drop-in replacement. The screw holes might have been the tiniest bit off, but I inserted all 4 and tightened them gradually so the plate pulled straight down. The gear ratio seems a little higher than the originals, which is a welcome change. The guitar now stays in tune quite well during and between playing sessions. The tuners look exactly like the originals. We are both very pleased.


Look original and perform well

Look good work poorly


Verified Buyer

These look really nice but the internal mechanism is loose and do not hold tuning very well.
