Back in December I bought an Epiphone Hummingbird to give my niece for Christmas. While setting it up, I discovered one of the "Kluson Deluxe" style tuners stripped a tooth while tuning. That meant a new set of tuners was in order. I tried fitting a set of Gotoh tuners I had, but the tuner posts were too short for the thicker headstock of the Epiphone and the cross hole in the tuner post barely cleared the tuner bushing. I see that these tuners have a post length of 1" versus the 15/16" length of the Gotohs, so I gambled on a set of these.

The Golden age tuners did the trick, allowing me to save the job. A couple of points to consider. First, the tuner posts on these tuners are 6mm (.236"), not 1/4", so if you're fitting these to a Gibson guitar you will need to use the included bushings or, as I've done, split a plastic straw and use it to "shim" the clearance between the post and the Gibson bushings. If you're going to use the included bushings, keep in mind that they're a bit undersized, and may be a loose fit in the holes. As I was installing these on an Epiphone, I just used the stock bushings, and the tuners worked perfectly. The buttons on these are especially nice, being a good looking yellow-cream color, and not the "snot green" color of so many "Kluson style" tuners.

In fact, I liked them so much I installed another set on an Epiphone Flying V I just bought.

Super relic-ed

Nice tuners. Smooth fast tuning to pitch. It is not a light relicing though. Very grungy looking. I would have liked a lighter relic-ed finish and didn't use the bushing because of it. The blackening of the process was a bit much. Installed these tuners on my super reliced Chibson. Having said that, it is just an aesthetic thing for me, the tuners are top notch and vintagey and a great value.

Epiphone - No rework needed

Direct fit to my girlfriends 1997 Epiphone Les Paul Studio. I didn't need to add new placement screw holes. In fact I just reused the bushing and the screws. I didn't both to swap everything out, just the tuning peg.

These glide great, the nut on the guitar is great and demonstrate that these affordable tuners work great, most tuning issues are associated with the string to the nut and not the tuners themselves. In this case I got these because I got the guitar for her with a known damaged tuner.

Anyway, if you need a direct replacement for an epi with this style tuner, just get these. Not really worth over investing in some guitars. Main thing is that she's happy with the guitar, it looks super clean and uniform and the tuners look classic.

Works Great

I bought these tuners for an import guitar. The originals would not keep the guitar in tune, and very hard to get it to tune. Once off the headstock the old posts would move 1/4 inch. Put these on and what a big difference. Now it stays in tune. THANKS STEWMAC

I recently purchased these Inexpensive tuners for replacement on an Epiphone SG Junior Custom Shop (it was really cheap, but I like it!). The original tuners on these cheap Epiphones are usually really poorly constructed and don't last, sometimes even not working right out of the box. I drilled and filled (my first time for that, not a perfect job for sure) and installed these and I'm amazed at the difference. These tuners are smooth and consistent, working great so far. I would recommend!
