I could not be happier with these tuners. I have purchased two sets so far for my Epi Les Pauls and I love that they are a direct fit. The only additional work needed is for the tiny screws on the back of the headstock. These tuners do cover up the pre-existing Grover tuner holes which makes for a very clean install. Thanks StewMac for the great customer service and fast shipping.
This is the second set of these I have installed on my 1970 Gibson J-50 in about ten years. I suppose ten years is a good service life for tuners at this price. The just loosen up with use. Easy to install.
Direct replacement for the stock Gibson Deluxe tuners on a Les Paul Studio. Same look yet work way smoother. Add a bone nut and you have the ingredients of great upgrade!
Replaced the original tuners on a Gibson VOS R58 Les Paul plaintop from 2006, finally the guitar stays in tune. I had to use a reamer to make the holes a bit bigger, because the original holes was a tiny bit to small.
Excellent tuners !
I obtained a Tokai J-200 on ebay and Gibson Keystones (chrome) were on it. I thought Gold was more appropriate and chose gold Grover Keystones. The fit was perfect and they enhanced the appearance of this guitar. Stewart Macdonald is the best!
These machine heads are beautiful and reflect quality all the way. They hold tuning very well. I recently installed a set on an Epi Less Paul and I swear that guitar blushed with pride.
I used them for a new project, so making a 10mm holes wasn't big deal. They are stay in tune perfectly I'm glad I spent the extra money for grovers. I use to used the vintage Gotoh, but they never stayed in tune. And you can bit the SM price except the Shipping.
I replaced metal Grovers on a Heritage 140. They matched one of the holes so I only had to drill one hole for each tuner. The tuner covered the other hole. They stay in tune and give the guitar a vintage look.
This shop is great, very good stuff at low price, but when you live outside the USA the ups delivering suck. you have to pay when the guy is at your door, please find another way to post the stuff !!
But i will buy here again and again.
I didn't put 5 stars only because of the UPS delivery!! But it's the best online shop i know !!
Sorry if my english is not good, but i'm French, i try to understandable, but............
I bought these to replace some cheaply made replacement tuners on a early 90s SG Special. They fit perfectly in the original screw holes. I have had them on for a couple of weeks now and they keep the guitar perfectly in tune. Most days I don't even need to tune it right out of the case. They look just like the originals only they are much better.
