Nice Upgrade

Perfect replacement for the cheapie tuners that came on one of my favorite guitars. Hold perfect tune, and add a nice upscale touch. Will use on other guitars in the future when time to replace or upgrade.

Very nice tuners

I put these on my Alvarez AD60. I got them in black and they look terrific on the guitar. In addition, they are extremely smooth and consistent, and the quality is top notch.

I'm very happy that I ordered these, and I love shopping from Stewart-MacDonald.

Great Product

I'm just getting started building custom solid bodies. I've found some tuners locally and have been satisfied, but these surpassed everything so far. For the price, I don't think I'll find anything better.

Great replacement machines for Gibson ES 325

I changed the 3 on a plate machines on this guitar over 35 years ago to Grover Rotomatics.
I have just replaced them with these Gotoh 503's! They are well made and of excellent quality for less than $40. They dropped right in the headstock and fit as well as the Grovers. They stay in tune and did not change the acoustics of the instrument.
I did not choose these machines by chance or price. A few months back a customer just would not cough up the extra $5 for Grovers (I have always installed Grovers on my custom builds) so he insisted on these cheaper machineheads !! I was surprised by the quality and tight gear lash, so that is how I made the choice to install them on my own guitar.
The string post are a little short for a Martin headstock, yet are just right for the 70's Gibson with 7 degree angle and 9/16ths thickness!
So the string angle might improve the sonic qualities of the old Gibsons, but as stated I could tell no difference.

Gotoh Tuners

I've used the Gotoh Large Schaller-style tuning machines on eight guitars that I've built or repaired, and I love the quality and cost. For the price, I don't believe there's a better tuner on the market. They're well made and are as good or better than machines that cost much more.

Great tuners, for a great price!

I usually install Schaller or Grover tuners in my guitars, but I took a chance on these about 8 months ago. I had a set of old Grovers from the '80s on my flying V that I built in 2007, and the guitar was dropped in early 2010. I bent a tuner shaft real bad. I decided since the tuners were chrome and the rest of my hardware was black, to get new tuners. I'm real glad I did. These are excellent. Even compared to tuners 2 or 3 times their price! The finish is great, they stay in tune forever, and the build quality is very nice. BUY THEM.

Step up!

These tuning machines are an improvement over the originals on my Alvarez PD90S.

Machine heads

Quite happy with the tuners, but the mounting screws must be made of really soft steel. 2 of the screw heads stripped out even though I pre-drilled the holes to correct size and was really careful screwing them in.

Great tuners, wish you buy singles instead of a set....

I bought these to replace some really cheap tuners on an electric ukulele with headstock dimensions similar to an electric guitar. I guess I have a spare for each side now. What are the odds I'll have to actually use one? Wish I could have bought singles. I know it's an oddball situation but any experienced tech knows all about those. Great tuners otherwise.

Solid Tuning Knobs

Like these tuning knobs a lot! Got a DIY guitar kit a few months ago. The tuning machine that came with the kit does not keep in tune. So bought these and tried it on. Very solid and keep the instrument in tune very well. Highly recommended for those who is looking for a hardware upgrade.
