Gotoh Locking Vintage Oval Knob 6-In-Line Tuners

About This Item

Locking versions of the classic oval knob, stamped housing tuners found on vintage Fender® guitars. For 6-in-line pegheads.

6-in-line locking tuners that are the perfect upgrade for old or new Fenders with "Kluson-style" tuners — they're a direct retrofit!

These fine reproductions feature old style stamped gear housings, but have modern improved 15:1 gearing for smoother, more precise action.

All sets include mounting screws and round press-fit peghead bushings. Peghole spacing is 4-11/16" (119.06mm). 11/32" (8.73mm)-diameter pegholes required. Please note that 3 of the tuners have a green decal on the back of the machine. These 3 machines have a smaller diameter string hole, and are to be used with the unwound (G,B,E) strings.

Nickel.

Installation Tips

Bushings: We recommend the #2062 Bushing Reamer (.340" diameter) to cut a clean, accurate counterbore for a professional job. Fit the press-fit tuner bushings correctly so your tuners will work smoothly.

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.

Got these to upgrade a made-in-China squire strat that wouldn't hold tune. Very easy upgrade - no installation problems at all. They made a huge improvement in tuning stability!

Almost excellent except a bit tight to turn

This was perfect fit for my 2018 Fender Classic Jaguar. Install was really easy. In fact I didn't remove the ring sleeves. I just find it a bit hard to tune as the pegs are a bit tight.

I put these on my Eric Clapton strat, they are a direct replacement but a earlier poster stated that you could use the stock bushings and only replace the tuners, this is inaccurate. You must use the bushings that come with the new locking tuners because the hole is smaller and the holds the post in place firmer and allows the tuner to lock and work as it is suppose to. Replacing the bushings is easy with the tool supplied with the tuners and you can do the entire replacement in 15 minutes. The locking tuners are excellent and have a high gear ratio that makes fine tuning easy.

Great Replacement

These dropped In replacing the horrible stock vintage tuners on my Squire Strat. It wasn’t just me as I watched videos of others having just as many problems with the originals. These are a treat.

Perfect locking tuners for a '97 Clapton strat. Did not have to drill any holes, and didn't even have to replace the bushings inserts.

EASY UPGRADE

By

Got the Vintage Locking tuners for my Fender EOB Strat. I did not like the standard tuners; ordered these - they dropped in to the existing press fit bushings. It is so much better now. They have smaller holes for the unwound strings. They are different than the Sperzel type, the lock occurs when you wind the knobs. Just as effective.

Perfect fit for Squire Classic Vibe Custom Telecaster

I was looking for locking tuners to replace the top loading ones that came with my CV Tele. I was able to drop these right in using the existing bushings and screws. Very easy and took about 5 minutes. Now string changes are much easier. I always has trouble getting the high strings to grab with the top loaders.

Kay rebuild

Crazy !!
I saw a Stew Mac video using these tuners on a 60s Kay, as I was rebuilding a 60s Kay with the same headstock, for a friend of mine. He loves the way it turned out plus the benefit of locking the strings.
