Pre-war style tuners reborn!
Our replica 3-on-plate tuners featuring square worm supports on rectangular steel plates. Their improved 15:1 gear ratio provides better tuning than the originals, and our popular relic nickel finish complements vintage hardware. Available with original-shape cream or black plastic knobs.

Golden Age tuners are exclusively from Stewart-MacDonald, made with our eye for details and exact specifications.

Golden Age tuners are the rebirth of popular early 20th Century tuning machine designs, featuring simple steel plates and open gears. Replacements for the originals have long been sought by collectors and repairmen, to restore older guitars and improve their tuning. They add an authentic look to reproduction guitars.

15:1 gear ratio for improved tuning
Vintage-style riveted worm supports
Original-shape matte cream or matte black plastic knobs
.236" (6.00mm) string post diameter
Original mounting screw spacing (screws incuded)
1-3/8" (34.93mm) string post spacing
Relic nickel finish

Also available to fit solid pegheads and for 12-string guitar.

Note: Plate-mounted tuners can't work efficiently if the pegholes are improperly aligned. Our Tuner Drill Jig ensures the correct spacing for accurate tuning.

"The Golden Age Restoration tuners are really great. I have just put them onto my 1929 Gibson L-1...I like the fact that someone went to the trouble of making them look right." —John Evans, Brussels Belgium

"Great tuners with the right look and feel! The only thing different about them is that they are better made and more functional." —Richard Barnes, Pomona CA

To be sure these tuners fit your instrument, compare your existing machines and peghole dimensions to our listed specs to help determine the best replacement.

Consider a banjo version?

I recently built an open back banjo using a turn of the century rim and hardware. I wanted the neck to have the look of the old Dobson and Buckbee banjos from the late 1800's. Many of these were made with slotted head stocks, but of course I wanted modern, accurate tuners. With a little modification these tuners fit the bill perfectly, and they tune very well too. My only regret is having to cut them down and basically wasting 2 of my 6 tuners. I know there's probably not a great amount of demand, but I'd like to see a 2-on-a-plate version for us banjo builders, if that's possible.

a little play

There's a little play on my B-string tuner but they seem relatively well made at this price point and the aesthetic is perfect. What would be really nice is if they had a bushing on the interior side of the shaft

Restoration Story

I just finished restoring a J. Barnard Brazilian rosewood guitar made in Chicago in the 1920's. I used some Golden Age Square-end tuners and ebony bridge pins. The tuners were great, with a decent distressed finish and excellent quality without any slop. They fit perfectly. Reset the back, new binding and crack repair. I French polished the instrument and dressed the bar frets. It sounds wonderful. The customer got this guitar at auction for fifty bucks!

Golden Age Restoration Tuners

Bought them for a 1933 National resonator. Didn't want to alter the instrument and I didn't have to thanks to Stew-Mac! Perfect fit and they looked identical to the original tuning machines.
