I removed the brand new gold knobs that came with the tuners and installed these pearloid knobs. They're much nicer than the gold in that they don't show smudge marks and look beautiful. I don't know why they don't come standard on gold tuners.
I bought these for my Yamaha LS16 acoustic. They fit perfectly and I liked them so much I tried one on my Taylor, and it fit, so I have ordered a second set. Great product!
Fits well. I replaced metal knobs on my original Schaller tuners. It was good upgrade and noticeably weight reduce.
I bought a 4x2 small pearloid set for my chinese OLP EVH look alike after sending back 2 other sets from S. Mac's competitors. The tuners on the OLP are Schaller knock offs but decent. The buttons are not a good fit (a little to big internally). That's not stew macs fault of course. I just cut up tiny strips of a white pic and placed them in the hole and now they fit snug. They look as good as any high-end tuner button I've seen. An absolute steal for the price!
I have a Taylor acoustic guitar with ebony tuning knobs. One of them broke recently, and Taylor doesn't seem to use them anymore, or carry them in stock. I did some research and found out that Schaller knobs are a suitable replacement. I got a set of Schaller ebony knobs from Stew-Mac and replaced the broken one on the Taylor. It works great. Thanks.
Since I knew my Fender Tele keys are manufactured by Schaller, this one fitted. These knobs give us not only greater look but improve the balance also when I shoulder it with a strap. I recommend this (or ebony knob) to who feels his or her guitar head is a bit heavy.
My Larrivee P-10 MQ came with ebony Larrivee tuners and one broke. Larrivee no longer has them so I searched all over for replacements and came up empty. But I finally found a hit on the Internet that said the Sheller tuners worked perfectly for my Larrivee. I ordered a set and must say they are an exact replacement in fit and color. I really like the ebony buttons more than the standard chrome buttons and Larriee no longer offers the ebony so I am greatfull that I found these. On some Larrivee models you will have to remove the tapered collar that the old keys fit but you just slide it off to expose the acutal shaft.
I've used both the small and larger button versions of these on my Paul Reed Smith's and they work great. My only complaint, that I've expressed to Stew Mac several times, is that the ebony set comes with gold screws. I have no idea why this is the default so I typically use the stock chrome screws. I wish they would include black screws with the ebony.
Installed on PRS phase 2 machines,looks great. Wish they would offer a bone material.
My natural finish, ash body American Standard Telecaster is beautiful with these black volume, tone and tuner knobs (both from STEW-MAC).
These replacement tuner knobs completed the black/chrome trim-out of my guitar. The switch tip and pickguard were already black so, replacing the chrome control and tuner knobs with high quality black parts resulted in a tastefully customized instrument.
I was concerned that the tuner knobs may not fit on Fender's standard American tuners, but one of the reviews (by a Fender owner who had also used them) allayed my concern.
Thanks again STEW-MAC for great parts at a great price. And, your return policy served me well when I first ordered the wrong volume and tone knobs (6mm instead of 1/4").
