I wanted lockers and something a little bit nicer looking for a Tele I was building and these lil guys fit the bill nicely! So far so good,seem to be well built & solid mechanically.
Built a Strat several years ago and had a hard time keeping it in tune. Bought the Gotoh Mini 510 tuners and what a Big improvement. Stays in tune and very easy to change strings.
Excellent tuners. I've replaced all tuners on both USA Fender Strat(non-lock) & B-Bender(locking) initially because the 'd' string tuner was too low but I also found the 18:1 gearing easier to tune and stay in tune.
I have used two sets of these for custom orders where the clients are not prepared to compromise on aesthetics or functionality. These proved to be a good choice. They are smooth, sturdy and the build quality is exceptional.
I wish they had these is real BLACK, not that silly cosmo chrome.
These are excellent tuners to replace my stock tuners on my Made in Mexico Telecaster. They stay in tune and were easy to install.
Definitely worth it.
I'm kinda old school. Schaller has always been the reason you drilled out yr 70s Fenders to 10mm. I have 5 guitars currently equipped with Schaller tuners. The sad truth is that their quality has deteriorated. I can speculate that Schallers machinery has worn out but who knows... and who cares.
I decided to finally give locking tuners a try and was allured by the Gotohs clean look. Another plus is Ive always heard Gotoh was a pretty good Schaller knockoff.
All I can say is the 2 guitars I put 510 Locking tuners on have become "workhorse" guitars if only for their tuning stability. Now the tough part: Do I pull the Schallers off my favorite guitar and "laterally move" to the Gotohs? I'm really considering it. Maybe Ill throw the Schallers on a Squier or something.
Either way from now on any guitar that I decide to upgrade the tuners on (& lets be real that's like every guitar) will be upgraded to Gotoh 510 Locking Tuners... The only choice is whether or not I stay traditional or get really modern with the Cosmo finish!
These tuners are the best I've seen, Extremely high quality. They are built solid and tough and look amazing too. The locking mechanism is great you just unscrew the top put the string in and your done! They stay in tune really well and are great for people who like bending strings a lot. These tuners are a must for any new guitar.
