Specs
Waverly's feature old style tapered 1/4"-diameter string posts and the press-fit brass hex bushings fit 11/32"-diameter pegholes. Screws included.

With Waverly tuners, your guitar plays in tune and stays in tune. Waverly's patented design combines stainless steel with bronze to create smooth, non-slip tuning. The perfect replacement tuners for valued instruments, Waverly machines are handmade to fit precisely without drilling on older Martin and Gibson guitars. Manufacturers such as C.F. Martin, Gibson, Collings, Santa Cruz, Huss & Dalton, Sams, and Bourgeois choose Waverlys for their finest instruments.

Whether you're fitting a solid-peghead or slotted-peghead guitar, there are Waverly models to fit.

Conversion peghead bushings are available for installing Waverly tuning machines in larger diameter 3/8" diameter (Grover, Gotoh, Schaller, etc.) pegholes.

Direct replacement design: No additional mounting holes to drill when replacing similar vintage machines on older Martin & Gibson guitars.

More efficient operation & more precise tuning: 16:1 gear ratio. Patented worm tension bushing eliminates looseness.

Long life with less wear: Stainless steel worm gears have twin bushings. String post gears are machined from bronze alloy; more durable than brass.

Authentic knobs and string posts: Knobs are genuine mother-of-pearl, specially treated to have a transluscent black color. Old style tapered string posts are nickel-plated brass.

Great tuners

Waverly tuners are the best for staying in tune and easy operation and the black pearl adds beauty to my collings 02 sunburst.

Waverly Tuners/ Black Pearl Knobs

When I opened the box, my son Jordan saw the tuners and picked one up. He said it was the most beautiful thing he'd ever seen. And it was. As with all the Waverly tuners, they work as beautifully as they look. The very best!

Excellent

I just put these new machines on my recently purchased Guild guitar, which had a similar set of Gotoh machines from the factory. The Waverly's are real pretty, but more importantly feel and tune the way they should. The knobs are fantastically comfortable; a big improvement on the Gotoh's.

I only have two concerns: 1) the measurement given between the center of the tuning shaft and the closest screw hole was 10mm (which was actually what I needed it to be); and not the ~6mm that the Stew-Mac illustration said it would be. and 2) why can't manufacturers stop making their equipment so that a different brand doesn't quite fit? Would manufacturers rather see people break their guitars than sustain a monetary loss if their customer would like to switch brands on a part?

The reason I say this is because the two screw holes were ~1.5mm further apart than the Gotoh screw holes had been and I had to very carefully install the new screws so that nothing bad happened. No drilling could have solved this; the existing hole became half of the new hole. Ridiculous.

Tuning stability and looks

Everyone knows how stable Waverly's are and the tuning stability they provide - these fit that bill perfectly. Added them to a Martin 000-18GE with pearly inlay markers and the Waverly Black Pearls were a spot on match. Very pleasing to the eye.
