Kluson Waffleback Guitar Machines

About This Item

Named for the distinctive grooves on the cast gear housings, these are improved reproductions of the deluxe tuners used on many Gibson® guitars.

They feature nylon worm bearings for smooth operation, 15:1 gear ratio for precise tuning, and maintenance-free sealed lubrication.

Sets of 6 (3-left/3-right), with screws and press-fit bushings included. 11/32"-diameter pegholes required. Available with plastic or metal keystone knobs.

Installation Tips

Bushings: We recommend the Standard Peghole Reamer to cut smooth, perfectly round holes.

Mounting screws: Pilot holes required. Installing delicate screws into hard wood requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend the #1713 Depth-stop Drill Bit (No.44 bit) for the pilot hole before installing these screws. Lubricate the screw threads with cutting lubricant (also wax or a bar of soap) to reduce friction and help them thread properly.

Hats off to Kluson. Exact drop in period correct replacement waffleback tuners! These function better than the originals did brand new. I read a review from a frustrated consumer who complained about misfitting that makes me suspect he chose the wrong replacement tuners. These fit my 1964 ES355 exactly as the factory installed originals did 55 years ago.

I wanted to replace a couple of tuners on a '72 LPC. They arrived very quickly after ordering.
The all gold metal knob versions were an exact match for the originals. Screw holes matched perfectly . I just removed and replaced. I kept the original bushings in place although the provided replacements were an exact match as well.
I had some concerns about fit after reading some of the previous reviews, but those concerns were groundless. For my application, these were a perfect replacement.You can really appreciate the new engineering that went in to the new Kluson's wafflebacks. So much better than the originals, very smooth and precise adjustments.
These were a great improvement.

Fast delivery and a perfect fit straight out of the box. Very Happy, I used these on three Gibson Les Paul Customs, 71, 72 & 74, leaving the bezels in place.

I couldn’t get the old tuners to hold a tune. Instead I replaced them with these and o could never be more happy

Perfect fit; color and more importantly they hold a note

Thanks

I was looking for a replacement tuner for a 1962 Gibson SG Custom and this was the exact replacement I wanted. Quick service, received ahead of delivery date. 100% satisfied! Thanks.

Don't buy these.

This product is advertised as a direct replacement for Gibson deluxe tuning heads. It's not. Not only do the existing screw holes in the head stock not line up with the spacing on the product but even worse is the press in bushings that come with are WAY smaller than the holes in the headstock. Try to install them and the bushings will just fall out. They may be a good tuning head if you're building a guitar but they are absolutely not a replacement for Gibson deluxe tuners.

I was looking for something with a cream color and a smooth feel to replace the "Gastly Green" tuners that came with the guitar. These guys fit the bill exactly. They are primo functionally and aestically just what I was looking for!

As usual, Stemac's customer service was immaculate. The Kluson machine-heads look and work great on my Les Paul.
