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.

If, like me, you are converting from closed-back Gotoh/Grover/Schaller to these open-back styles, you need to order wider bushings ("tuner parts" section on Stew-Mac). I WISH Stew-Mac would put a caveat in the description of these tuners...not everyone measures before buying, or has luthier skills. I assumed it was a drop-in replacement, and now I'm stuck with another $20 in international shipping for a 10 dollar part. I made a temporary fit with teflon tape, but it is SO not cool on a $4,000 guitar.

BUT...these are smooth and pretty tuners on my customized HD 28. The 25 year old Schallers stripped a gear, and I was only too happy to upgrade to a retro open-back.

Photo attached...extra points if you can see my pyjamas in the shiny knobs!

The best guitar tuners

Don't waste your money on expensive tuners. These function much better for 1/4 of the price. Now if they could just start making more knob options!

Replaced the original nickel tuners on my Martin 000-15M. This was a no-brainer removal and replacement. Use caution when removing the original bushings. These are excellent tuners smooth and stable in operation. There's just something about a touch of gold. Excellent Stewmac service as usual.

Phenominal tuners

Just finished my double cut Les Paul with a "slotted" headstock. They look beautiful and function perfectly. I've owned a lot of guitars, installed a lot of tuners in my 40+ years of playing, building and repairing all sorts of stringed instruments and these tuners hold their own with any other tuners.

They're Grovers so...

...of course they're good. Reasonably priced and they are a great improvement to my Gretsch 5120. Intonation is greatly improved and the guitar actually stays in tune now. The originals were terrible.

I have used Grover 18:1 Sta-Tites on several guitar projects and they have never let me down. A brilliant upgrade for an intermediate guitar, but they are also at home on high $$ instruments. These tuners not only look great with a vintage vibe they do their job.

I've used the gold tuners on all the steel string guitars I've made. They are lightweight, stable, smooth, good looking and superb value for money.
