I purchased these GDK's mainly because they were exact drop-in replacements for the originals (made in China?) in my Blueridge BR-160 in which the back casing came off one of them. In fact, they were the ONLY direct replacements whereby the dimensions (screw holes/peg hole dia.)were the same. I had also used Grovers for replacement on my Gibby J-45 a long time ago and they have held up well over the years. So I felt pretty good about these also.
So far so good but only time will tell. I also think they look better than the original chrome/silver buttons. Overall, they seem very well made.
Grover has always made good tuners in general that's why a lot of Guitar Manufacturers use them albeit under their own name. I bought these Key Stones to make my new resonator look a bit more "funky" as if my guitar were from the 20's. They ended up looking great. They were only better because they were of "modern" manufacture so they felt more solid. They held tune. My only concern will be the test of time; other tuners have a tension screw on the end of the tuner button that allows you to tighten the tension should the tuner gears wear over time. The Keystones don't have that screw. But they are built very solid and I don't expect them to wear or loosen during my life time.
I installed these in my Epi Les Paul. Excellent tuner. It keeps the original look but with better fine tuning.
