Waverly Guitar Tuners with Pearl Knobs, for Solid Pegheads

About This Item

The choice of renowned guitarmakers for their finest instruments.
Genuine mother-of-pearl gives these knobs a luster that stands out from plastic imitations.

Waverly's feature old style tapered 1/4"-diameter string posts and the press-fit brass hex bushings fit 11/32"-diameter pegholes. Screws included.

With Waverly tuners, your guitar plays in tune and stays in tune. Waverly's patented design combines stainless steel with bronze to create smooth, non-slip tuning. The perfect replacement tuners for valued instruments, Waverly machines are handmade to fit precisely without drilling on older Martin and Gibson guitars. Manufacturers such as C.F. Martin, Gibson, Collings, Santa Cruz, Huss & Dalton, Sams, and Bourgeois choose Waverlys for their finest instruments.

Conversion peghead bushings are available for installing Waverly tuning machines in larger diameter 3/8" diameter (Grover, Gotoh, Schaller, etc.) pegholes.

Direct replacement design: No additional mounting holes to drill when replacing similar vintage machines on older Martin & Gibson guitars.

More efficient operation & more precise tuning: 16:1 gear ratio. Patented worm tension bushing eliminates looseness.

Long life with less wear: Stainless steel worm gears have twin bushings. String post gears are machined from bronze alloy; more durable than brass.

Authentic knobs and string posts: Knobs are genuine mother-of-pearl, specially treated to have a translucent black color. Old style tapered string posts are nickel-plated brass.

Addendum to precious review.

The Waverly/w pearl tuners were a replacement for Gotoh open back tuners. The Waverlys slipped perfectly into the existing bushings that were pressed into my Guild. I made the decision not to replace the existing bushings. There simply was no need. The screw holes were so close that all it took was a very light touch of the proper drill bit (3/32) to create a tap hole. Love these tuners.

Purchased these tuners to replace the Gotoh opened tuners on my Guild Orpheum slope shoulder dread. Thus fabulous guitar deserves the finest tuners and Waverlys are simply the finest. The pearl is spendy but it looks beautiful. Classy. I have Waverly Classical tuners (only available for a short time) with pearl on my handmade classical. FABULOUS. I will post some photos later.
