Gotoh Large Schaller-style Knob 3+3 Tuning Machines

About This Item

Featuring precision 16:1 ratio, sealed lubrication, cast housings and removable metal knobs, these are some of the finest tuners available.

The large metal Schaller-style knob is the same as found on many modern guitars. 10mm (13/32")-diameter pegholes required. Sets include mounting screws and threaded hex bushings.


Installation Tips

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.

Nice Step Up !

Factory Ping tuners on Ibanez AR250 upgraded to the Gotohs. Very smooth, accurate and stay in tune. 16 to 1 ratio better than competition. Drilling required for small mounting screws to avoid breakage.

These tuning machines were a serious upgrade from the original tuners. Installed easily and strings stay in tune with no looseness now! For the price, a very good deal.

After 2 months of screwing around with various music stores, a musician in Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin gave me the Stew-Mac info. Some of the tuners that were ordered for me 2 months ago still are not here and others weren't even close. I called Stew-Mac and in two days I had the right tuners for my Gibson. Perfect fit and excellent quality. Its good to know there are still people out there that are good at what they do. Thank you!

Love these tuning machines

I have built 10 acoustic guitars now and used these tuning machines (gold and chrome) on all of them, no reason to change. I would like to see them include an (extra) screw though, these tiny things are easy to lose in the building process

Nice upgrade in spiffing and old guitar that you want to keep around.

I had a 1970's Morris guitar sitting around. It had a solid top and still sounded good but the tuning pegs were all lose and so were the knobs. I got the Gotoh tuners and it put on new strings and I love playing this guitar again. Because stew mac provides all the specs on the website I knew what size I had to ream out the holes to and what size stater hole drill bit I needed. This made the job go quickly. Great tuners. Also good info and service provided by stewmac.

Better than what I had, but required some extra work

Bought the Gotoh SG381 tuners in black and they really look sharp on my Cherry
Red Epiphone SG. They are much smoother than the original Wilkinson Deluxe 14:1
tuners, have much better cast bodies, seem to stay in tune better, look much
cooler, and are reasonably priced. I will post photo later, if that's possible.

Unfortunately the threaded bushings are rather short at 10.5mm and certainly
NOT long enough for the ~17mm thick SG headstock. Because StewMac does not
sell any threaded bushings separately I was forced to find them elsewhere.

OK

Build quality and finish are top notch. Tuning up is very smooth, and they hold their tune, but, they have a significant amount of backlash - more than I'd expect. (It's not my nut, I've compared three sets of tuners on the same guitar and nut). The backlash isn't a deal breaker, because you should only be tuning "up", and if you go sharp, you go tune well below the note, and tune up again…but the backlash still bothers me. I have tried numerous sets of Gotoh that did not have this problem. I don't know whats up with this particular set. Btw…I just gave up and got Waverlys.

These fit exactly on a Larrivee OMV-10 model, perfect except for the logo.
