Gotoh Vintage-style Oval Knob 3+3 Tuners

About This Item

Traditional knob shape, smooth and precise.

These fine reproductions feature old style stamped gear housings, but have modern improved 15:1 gearing for smoother, more precise action. The oval knobs are just like the ones found on electric and acoustic guitars manufactured in the late 1940s to present.

Nickel. Set of 6: 3 left; 3 right.

Includes mounting screws and round press-fit peghead bushings. 11/32"-diameter pegholes required.

Also available: Special conversion bushings for installing tuning machines into 3/8" or 10mm pegholes, without redrilling.


Installation Tips

Bushings: We recommend the #2062 Bushing Reamer (.340" 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 #1713 Depth-stop Drill Bit (No.44 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.

Got em in the mail yesterday, they seem smooth and well made. They are a little bit smaller than I had expected which works great for the guitar they are going on.

These were a perfect drop in replacement on my 94 Ibanez Talman. Definitely helped the tuning stability. Quick shipping and a fair price, thank you Stewmac!

Perfect fit for a Yamaha APX-2

Transformed my son's APX-2 from a toy into a musical instrument. Direct drop in replacement. I used the new tuners to pop out the old ferells and reused the factory screw. Finally stays in tune! Couldn't be happier.

Great upgrade for an Epiphone Casino

These tuners were the perfect replacement for the worn out tuners on my made-in-Korea Casino. No drilling was required, even the bushings fit. The only difficult part of the install was making a tool to push out the old tuners without chipping the paint on the headstock.

Good Solid Tuners

By

These replace the cheap Chinese tuners on a lot of imports. Peg holes have to be reamed or drilled out for the bushings, but screw holes line up. Be careful with the usual thick finish on the peg head; it's easy to chip.

Excellent tuners, tight, positive tuning and great looks. Used them on a custom Tele build and a lap steel, and they performed greatly to my satisfaction.

Replacement Tuners for 1970's MSA Pedal Steel Guitar

By
(Customer's Reviews)


These Gotoh tuners are a very good replacement for Kluson tuners used on older MSA PSG's. The only modification I had to make was to enlarge the tuners mounting hole's with a #30 drill bit for clearance.

Wonderful Product

These tuners are physically identical and mechanically superior the the legendary originals they are intended to replace. I've used them on several custom-builds, and I've even used them to replace the "innards" of defective originals by swapping out the back cover. If your original covers can be salvaged (get out the metal polish and your Dremel tool), this is an excellent method to retain an all-original appearance on your instrument while upgrading the performance.
