Grover 18:1 Sta-Tite (97-18 Series) 3+3 Tuners

About This Item

Grover Sta-Tite™ tuners are a modern version of a vintage design. For 3-left/3-right solid pegheads.

Each tuner features 18:1 gear ratio for fine tuning, a cast baseplate, vintage style scalloped knobs, and nylon worm bearings and tension screw for smooth operation.

Sets of 6 (3-left/3-right). Each set includes mounting screws and knurled press-fit peghead bushings. 11/32" (8.73mm) diameter pegholes required.

Also available for slotted pegheads.


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 #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 tuners

I replaced the factory sealed tuners on my Baden A type with these Grover open tuners. I have had them on the guitar for a week now and so far they have been great. The Guitar is much easier to tune and it stays in tune much better. This has been a nice upgrade over what was on the guitar from the factory and has made the playing experience much better. I was thinking about selling this guitar but that has been put on hold since I am having such an improved experience playing it.

The new Grover Sta-Tites 18:1 tuners on 2 of my Martins.

Two of my Martin guitars have Grover Sta-Tites 18:1 tuners installed.
My 1973 D-35 (customized) I installed those.

The other came when I got a 2014 00015M, they were stock on that model.

I have only good reports on them. They hold the guitars in tune, they have very nice adjustment screws on the rear that can be tightened or loosened.
They look good too. I use the Waverly screws when I install them. I use a 1/16" bit so they are nice and tight.

For the money you can't beat these Tuners! Use them a lot on my rebuilds and also on my CBG builds!

Sloppy, Sticky Action

By

Verified Buyer


I've had these on a self-build dreadnought for 18 months. The action was nice in the beginning, but they became sticky after a year and a drop of light oil did not help (the fellow at Grover has since told me never to oil them). One tuner became sloppy - the bushings on the button shaft going bad, I think. Grover is replacing that one. I hope that one was unusual, since I have a second set ready to install on my second build. I may rethink that choice.

Perhaps they have changed...

By

I have gone through two sets of these tuners on the same guitar. They work wonderfully in the beginning but at some point the very poor machining and design rears its very ugly head. There is so much slop between the worm drive and gear that it slips. It makes a horrible sound and the string will suddenly drop about 9 whole steps. Hopefully they have changed something as this happened in the last 5 years, twice. All I know is I will not buy them anymore. I will pony up and get some actual nice tuners like the Waverly machines sold here. It is sad because grover has been quality for me in the past but this one missed the mark big time. Utter junk in my opinion. Stew-mac has replaced this set for me already but I am giving up before I have to do this the third time. I have a mix of ones that work and ones that do not. Seems like a few times a year I have to go through and change some because they no longer work. I am getting really tired of that. The short of this, save your money, you get what you pay for. Buy something else.

Great value

These are as good or better than tuners costing much more. Great for rebuilds and upgrades.
