Nice Tuners!

I have used these before and liked them on an old Electra LP copy I had. I bought them this time to go on a Recording King Dirty Thirty. Look great, tune well, and hold tune nicely. Installation easy, but the bushing holes in the RC were slightly larger than the bushings supplied. Couldn't use the existing bushings because the Gotoh shafts were too big. Anyway, the tension of the string kept the bushing in place and I have had no issues at all. Played first live gig with them recently and they held tune very well. As always, hassle-free, expert service and shipping from StewMac.

Smooth operation, high quality

I do stringed instrument repair and these Gotoh Vintage Keystone tuners are very smooth in operation and the chrome finish is high quality. I love the quick shipping from STEWMAC.

Keystones look wonderful

I put these tuners on my Epiphone Les Paul, but the holes were to big. Bought the bushings and they popped right in! They look wonderful. Thanks StewMac

Perfect replacement for 40's-era open-back Klusons

I just got a 1947 L7 with some less common open back Klusons. They are original, so they're a little worn out and I wanted something that just worked, that kept the instrument unaltered and the ability to put the originals back on if needed. These Gotohs are are absolutely a perfect drop-in replacement on the L7. Everything is the same: the post height, position, and screw holes. Even the new longer screws went in without needing to deepen the hole. The down side is that the back plate is smaller than the original but they are fully functional and the mod is completely reversible with no sign of replacement.

Amazing quality and price!

Theses are exact replicas of the original tuners found on an old ES-135. The only minor issue when installing them was the size of the bushings which were a wee bit larger than the originals. A little reaming of the holes in the headstock was required to push the bushings in. Apart from that, these are perfect! No need to spend more. Thanks.

Epiphone SG upgrade

I bought a 2001 Epi SG G40n. It was a good guitar but it became obvious that the stock tuners were cheap - very loose and went out of tune a lot. So I did some research and decided on these for price and brand. I have used Gotoh on other guitars and have been very pleased, and the price was good. Stewmac can improve on shipping costs, but factor that in and it was still a good deal and they are good when you call with questions, the people that answer the phone are knowledgeable. I installed them with little fanfare and the guitar now stays in tune great!

I've lost count on how many sets of replacement tuners I've bought, but I know I can rely on Stewart-Macdonald for the right ones every time!

If I could give a 3 1/2 I would. They're nice but sometimes don't operate very smoothly.

Easy and perfect fit

I bought these tuners as replacements for my 1993 Les Paul Classic, the are the vintage style that don't have a hex nut on the headstock side. These were a perfect, super easy install, simply take out 2 phillips screws on back of headstock, old tuner drops out, new tuner drops in and replace 2 screws. They also have held tune very well and feel nice and tight and solid.
