Gotoh 0938G

These went in precisely to fit on a Chinese Caraya 988-RN to turn an Antoinio Torres built with good materials from a mediocre instrument into a reliable flamenco negrita. Thank you these are much appreciated.

Quality Replacement Tuners

I purchased these tuners to replace some tuners on an old Goya Nylon String Guitar. The 0940-G tuners (being physically the same size, but different mounting hole locations), worked excellent. They have a good feel when the string is under tension and hold tune perfectly. These tuners exceeded my expectations (especially at the price).

Good value for price

The tuners were used to repair a friend's old favorite Sears guitar. My guess is that the guitar was from the 60's and had surprising great sound. A simple remove and replace was all that was necessary. I was surprised that it was a perfect fit. Good value for the price, As always good service from Stew Mac, arrived ahead of estimated time schedule.

After 15 years of use, perfect tuners

I installed the 0938-g tuners on one of my favorite production guitars (a high end Alhambra flamenco) 15 years ago - I have played this guitar more than my other guitars and have never had a problem with slippage or staying tune. Finish looks like it did the day I purchased them. I am a luthier and purchase a lot of tuners so I do look for quality. You can't go wrong with these tuners. Gotoh is one of my favorites for all my guitars.

You Pay for the Gold

The "Gold, Ornate" Gotoh tuners are not only far more expensive than the cheaper ones, but they are exactly the same mechanically. Make sure you understand before you buy that you are paying for the gold and the replaceable buttons. Functionally, they are not that good - they bind and jump and are imprecise. For the price, I thought they would have worked a lot better. On a more positive note, they fit my vintage Martin 00 classical (made in 1942) perfectly with only the need to drill one hole per side. I think the Martin is worth a bit now, so I suppose the expense was worth it. It just annoys me that I paid so much and they work like $15 machines.

A lot of tuner for a little dough!

Brought an old "El Degas" classical back to life with these very inexpensive tuners. These entry level Gotoh's were far superior to the "law-suit era" hardware that this mid level, imported guitar was shipped with. My customer loved them!

Tuner replacement

Perfect replacement tuners for my late 80's Takemine classical. Better than the originals. Perfect fit.

Antique gold, economy guitar tuner

I used these tuners to replace the tuners on a Suzuki S-2 guitar that I bought for my daughter while station in Italy in 1976. The tuners look and work great on the guitar. I did have to plug and re-drill the mounting screw holes but that was a very simple task using tooth picks as plugs. My Granddaughter is now using the guitar.
