Vintage 3-on-a-plate tuners ROK!

I was pleasantly surprised when my order arrived! QUICKLY AND EFFORTLESSLY I might add.
The vintage looking tuners add a lot of confidence to my vintage Guild M20 that the guitar will stay tuned!

I would highly recommend this item to anyone upgrading hardware but keeping the vintage look!

O.k, but research 1st

Bought these as a replacement for original "Deluxe" tuners on a Gibson ES-125. They fit perfectly, except I had to enlarge the bushing holes. Do this with a reamer, not a drill! One of the tuners had some significant backlash, which I should have noticed before I put them on. My fault, although Ste-Mac should have noticed before they shipped them. Perhaps the Gotoh set would have been better. They're only a few dollars more. There is also a set that actually says "Deluxe" on them. Next time I am restoring a vintage guitar, will probably call Ste-Mac before ordering!

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 good work poorly

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