Kluson 3 + 3's Waffleback

Verified Buyer


I had to wait until my birthday to open these. 3/13. Lucky day. These tuners are great and they are
to retrofit my vintage Gibson '65 Dove which my wife gave to me many years ago. My originals are also the Kluson Waffelbacks( although they are 12:1's) These new babies are 15:1. They are going in later today after a quick trip to the supermarket. Kudo's to all you guys at Stewmac who helped with this order...you are the best and I can't thank you enough!
I'll be back....Marty

Drop -in replacement

Verified Buyer


I was returning original style tuners to an early ‘70s J-200 which, like a ton of guitars back then, had been Rotomatic-ized. These Klusons (plus the 3/8” adapter bushings) were a virtual drop-in with no significant hand-fitting needed. In fact, the tuners were so exact that they even fit into the same screw holes as the originals. Perfect replacement visually as well. The adapter bushings likewise were an exact fit. Very pleased with the end result and the relative ease of installation. Would recommend highly for this application.
