Vintage-style 3-on-Plate Tuners

About This Item

For solid pegheads. Direct-replacement steel-string tuners with vintage-style stamped plates and white plastic knobs

Nickel plated, with nylon internal bushings for smooth operation. Complete set of 3-left, 3-right include press-fit peghead bushings and mounting screws.

15:1 ratio
1-3/8" string post spacing
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.

Everything appeared period correct. When I removed the tuners I found that the ferrules were too large for the headstock. Had to use the old ones.

Good tuners but

Work well and look good. seams to be a little inconsistent in tension from one key to another and are very sensitive to small amount of turns, seams more like 10:1.

Fit Like A Glove

I bought these to replace a disintegrated set of tuners on a 1958 National Resosonic. They just dropped into place, and I didn't have to install the ferrels, as these tuners fit exactly. Only thing that detracts from the install is that the new tuners look too new - I'll have to stain the plastic to "age" them.
