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.

My favour-ite tuners

By
(Customer's Reviews)


As good as Waverley's, not so many varieties though, at less than half the price. I purchased 3 sets for the guitar I am building now and for 2 future guitars.

Very nice tuners.

I recently re-finished my dad's old guitar from when he was in high school. This was the late 50'S! These tuners matched the visual appeal of the old archtop. The chrome is nice and shiny, seems very durable. They hold tune well, and are very light weight. I'll be using these again, I'm sure.

They are great for the money. What you expect out of Grover tuners.

Great open tuners

I recently bought a new Hofner Ignition Club Bass. The Asian open gear tuners looked good, but the gears were not great. StewMac, as always came through. I bought the Grover Staytites in nickel. They not only look great, but the gearing is excellent.

Solid.

Solid, lightweight, accurate and positive. These Grover 18:1 Sta-tites fill the bill in every respect.

A joy to tune

By

I replaced the stock tuning machines on my 1970's Framus. These are a joy to use. There is very nearly no play in the mechanisms. They are as beautiful as they are functional.

General Service

I would just like to say that your service has always been excellent, second to none. The parts i have recently ordered are for a restoration job on a 1931 Recording King.

Too nice

Decided to change tuners on my project guitar- you know the one kept in the shop for experiments, it would'nt stay in tune. Replacing the cheap import tuners with these made the darn thing playable. Will buy them again that's for sure. Now maybe I'll actually try that kit guitar I have had my eye on. Thanks Grover.

The best you can get

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I put a set of these on my Martn HD-28V to replace the standard Martin 14:1 tuners. No mod needed. The brass gear and the 18:1 upgrade on these Grovers give precise tuning and hold the tuning great.
They are 40 bucks...but on a 3000 guitar, it's well worth it.

Great Tuner / Great Value

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Having owned many tuners through the years, I believe that Sta-Tites are as good a functioning tuner for the price that you can get, for a vintage Style tuner! I bought 6 sets, far out-weighing the cost of Waverly's by comparison. Great looking, accurate tuners w/o any backlash associated w/ many other tuners. Clear winners at a resonable cost.
