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.

Lousy Screws

By
(Customer's Reviews)


The tuners are fine, but the screws are awful -- four of them broke off in the pilot holes. No wonder StewMac is offering a screw extractor/plug cutter kit now. If you order these tuners, order after-market screws at the same time. Life's too short to spend time drilling out broken screws.

Can't really review

These are very different from the tuners that came on my guitar, and in order to put them on, I will have to fill the old holes and redrill. I think I'm going to have to take it to a shop. They seem okay. They're FAR thinner, and don't look as solid as the ones on the guitar now (MIM strat). I have not decided for certain that I want to replace the ones on the guitar. They seem to work fine....

I love Gotoh's version of these tuners. I needed these for my Tele-assembly project. Can't do this stuff without my Stew-Mac tools and parts.

 Gotoh tuners great but bad screws

Great tuners and very good price! But, bad screws. Broken two screws with proper holes drilled and still with just a little tension they break off. Even so, still love Stew Mac!

The best vintage tuners possible, available at a very reasonable price point... what's not to love?

Great price and tuner plus excellent tech support

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Tech support's suggestion was to drill the very top of the pilot screw hole out slightly larger to fit the collar of the screw (which is slightly larger than the screw threads), worked like a charm.

Gotoh is a well known name within the guitar making industry. These tuning machines did the trick and look great doing it.
