Gotoh Staggered-Height 6-In-Line Tuners

About This Item

Eliminates string trees for better tuning.
With different string post heights, each string gets ideal downward tension behind the nut. No need for string tree hold-downs or their interference with vibratos.

Vintage-style stamped gear housings, oval metal knobs and smooth, precise operation.

"I've had these on my Strat for nearly 10 years, and couldn't be happier. Eliminating the string tree improved my tuning stability, even with a tremolo."
—Erick Coleman, guitar repairman and StewMac tech advisor

The bushings are too small for a fender classic player (mexico) neck. About 1/3 of the concave profile on the tuning shaft is below the face of the bushing when installed.

Drop In Replacement - John Mayer Fender Stratocaster

By

Verified Buyer


I wanted to eliminate string trees like the Eric Johnson Strat on my John Mayer Strat and also benefit from the 15:1 ratio. These dropped right in and are nice and snug. I cannot believe the tuning improvement! I put on new strings and the guitar was keeping tune in no time! Awesome product!

These dropped straight in to the footprint of the Gotoh Kluson style tuners on my Fender Custom Shop '56 strat. No drilling, filling, reaming. They work great, too!

My favorite tuners!

By

I love these tuners! I have always loved the vintage style tuners, due to their simplicity, clean looks, & the wire fed through the center hole. Gotoh takes it a step further & staggers the post height to eliminate the need for string trees! I love this design & use it as often as I can. These are the easiest to install & perform the best, in my opinion. Just an added tip, make sure your hole spacing is drilled perfectly, there is hardly any room for errors when installing these.

Much Much better than the originals

These are excellent they give you a much better angle from the nut to the tuners you don't even need a string retainer, I put them on my Tele AVRI, they are machined very well no slipping. I will be a return customer here fast delivery and they have everything you need, Thanks Stew Mac.

Perfect for PRS

A set of original tuners on a PRS were worn out and beat up. This set was a perfect replacement

Love these!

Best staggered tuners for a Strat IMO. So far I have not installed string trees. Going to see how they perform after some playing and then I will decide if I need to install a string tree for the B/E string combo. I do believe a properly made nut, with minimal slot depth is the key here.

Surpassed My Expectations

These are great, tight, accurate tuners. I will be replacing the tuners with the Gotoh's on all of my telecasters. Great product.

No String Trees Needed!

By

Verified Buyer


They look great; imagine that, no string trees! I still like and use the regular Kluson style tuners with a string tree or two, but having some guitars without them is a beautiful option to put in the mix.

Amazing Tuning Stability on my CP 60s Strat!

By

Verified Buyer


Man these tuners are so good they nearly put themselves on. I had a standard vintage Gotoh set on the guitar but ended up with the G and B strings always going out of tune after barely any play. Now that I have removed the string tree and gone over the string nut slots with Big Bends Nut Sauce again(not to much)my CP 60's Strat sounds better than ever.
