Gotoh Vintage-style Oval Knob 6-In-Line Tuners

About This Item

These fine reproductions feature old style stamped gear housings, but have modern improved 15:1 gearing for smoother, more precise action.

Set of 6-in-line.

The oval knobs on these tuners are just like the ones found on electric and acoustic guitars manufactured in the late 1940s to present.

New tuners with vintage appeal: distressed look of the Relic Nickel plating is perfect for repairing old guitars, when shiny new hardware just won't do.

Includes mounting screws and round press-fit peghead bushings. Peghole spacing is 4-11/16" (119.06mm). 11/32" (8.73mm)-diameter pegholes required.

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

6-in-line locking tuners, which are the perfect upgrade for old or new Fenders with "Kluson-style" tuners — they're a direct retrofit!

Installation Tips

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.

Gotoh Vintage-style Oval Knob Tuners 6-In-Line

(Customer's Reviews)

Very nice tuner upgrade when installed on import guitars. On my recent install on a Squire guitar, I had to use the original screws and make slight adjustments to the tuner bodies (filing) as the original holes do not line up. Be aware.


Solid tuners

(Customer's Reviews)

The best vintage ovals I found till date. Could be little smoother. Does a solid job keeping the guitar in tune.


Gotoh Vintage-style Oval Knob Tuners 6-In-Line review

(Customer's Reviews)

I bought this set of tuners as an upgrade for my MIM Strat. The tuners are great! The screws supplied are GARBAGE!!! Every screw stripped out super easily- even with pilot holes pre-drilled. I couldn't believe how soft the metal was. Luckily, I had enough screws lying around to finish the job.
I don't mean to be a complainer. I love StewMac. I was just surprised that this was even an issue. Be prepared to supply your own screws.
