About This Item

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

Nickel, for 3-left/3-right pegheads.

The "scalloped" knobs are the same as found on many vintage Martin and Gibson acoustic guitars.

All sets include mounting screws and press-fit peghead bushings. 11/32"-diameter pegholes required.

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.

(Customer's Reviews) have to be creative. Had to buy two sets of these to get out one six-in-line set for an early 60s Fenton Weill Dualmaster. Tuners work and look great on that special guitar (with a set of conversion bushes by stewmac). I used stewmacs' #3361 tuner screws instead of the ones that came with the set, a perfectly fitting screwdriver, pre-drilled the holes with a 1,5mm bit and used a piece of (half-wet) soap for turning the screws in smoothly.

This tuners look vintage and the price is okay. The screws are bad, I had to replace them, and i don't like the 2 piece construction with a separate bushing....I lost one in my shop.


I've been screwed...

(Customer's Reviews)

The tuners are great, well made and finished. But the screws are rubbish. Very very poor quality, I didn't want the screws to snap ( I know other people have had trouble with this) so I made sure everything was properly drilled, about half a turn off completing the first screw, it broke. I now have half a lousy screw stuck in the back of my nice new neck. If you buy these tuners (which I would do again) DON'T USE THE SCREWS THAT ARE SUPPLIED.
