No bushings and the screws are defective. I had 2 break off in the head stock when affixing the plate. There's no easy way to get them out either. This is a big disappointment. What should have been an easy, clean upgrade turned into a hack job.
I've been learning by restoring old, cheap, basket case, guitars. These tuners filled the bill. They look good, and are functional at a very reasonable price.
Recently used these on an old Electromuse lap steel. Just the thing to make tuning a breeze.
Can't beat the price or the quality. I have an old Yamaha FG-110, which I converted to a lap steel. These tuners fit on perfectly and work like a charm. Hang on to your old bushings, because they aren't supplied.
I would buy this product again because the manufacture was completely satisfactory and there was not a whiff of 'cheapness' to be detected.
used these on an old '60's Harmony I rebuilt.They are almost a carbon copy of the old junkers I replaced. Real happy with them.
I purchased these tuners for fixing up an old garage sale guitar. They are better quality than I expected and were an exact fit. They look great and work terrific.
I inherited an old National lap steel with a busted tuner so I really was looking for something heavy duty to accommodate thicker strings but I didn't want to spend a lot. The problem was finding something with the proper spacing and this unit was the only one that might slip right in without re-drilling. When it arrived I was impressed with the general quality, reasonable looking gears, nice chrome finish with decorative etching and it even had new screws. They slipped in without issue and the screw holes even lined up-bonus. The test will be to see if they keep in tune and that may cause me to re-visit this in the future. At present, they are an unbelievable buy for the money.
I put this tuners on an old guitar banjo that had a broken tuner. It fitted right on. Seems to be good quality for the money.
My first guitar was made by Egmond Frères and it was cheap. Over time I broke two of the tuning knobs and have since got some better guitars. My Egmond Frères remained neglected for years. Then I discovered that a similar model Egmond Frères was George Harrison's first guitar. I believe Jimmy Page started with one of these and I just saw a photo with a very young Robert Fripp playing one. I searched for a set of cheap 3 on plate tuners that had four screws. There are many with three but the one on my guitar had four. I ordered this set from Stewart-MacDonald. They arrived quickly. I took of the old tuners and discovered that only one screw hole lined up. I used an awl and a small drill to make pilot holes and installed the tuners. It was an easy job and took about ten minutes. Some lemon oil applied to all the wood before installing the tuners and some new light gauge strings followed by some adjustment with an electronic tuner to set the floating bridge in place and my old cheap first guitar plays better than ever. The holes from the old set of tuners are covered up by the new set. The action of the new tuners is very smooth without any binding or resistance, which is a problem I had with the old ones. Tuning with these is easy. I'm quite happy with my little restoration project.
