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.

Great tuners

By


Drop in replacement for a 70s classic vibe jaguar. A bit of a learning curve getting the strings in the first time and getting the tops of the tuners to catch when tuning up but once i got that sorted, no issues. Definitely an upgrade in tuning stability!

Bought these to replace the stock tuners on my classic player jazzmaster. Fit perfect into the holes from the old tuners. Keep tuning stable. Exactly what I wanted.

I bought these for my fender modern player telecaster because it would often go out of tune. I was surprised at how well they fit, no drilling needed. My guitar now holds tune. A nice upgrade for my favorite guitar.

Great Tuners!

The first time I tried to change the strings on my brand new strat, one of the tuners locked up on me. My only complaint about the guitar was that the stock Fender Vintage style tuners felt cheap, had a terrible ratio, and the tuners “jumped” a lot. These Gotoh tuners are infinitely better and make restringing so much quicker!

Gotoh Locking Vintage Tuners

This is the best option, original footprint, no reaming, works well, and they look good to. I love my MIM guitar, but Fender really cut costs with the hardware, I consider these tuning keys to be a big step up.

Perfect fit

Used to replace tuners on my Mexican Classic Player Baja Telecaster. Very pleased that they exactly fit the existing bushes. Only the pole length differs from the originals, being slightly shorter.

Fitted as the locking mechanism makes restringing so much easier!

I bought these for my EOB Strat. Simple replacement. Much better than the originals that came with the guitar. It’s so much more enjoyable playing a guitar that stays in tune now.

A Better Replacement

Had these installed on my Squire Jaguar with no modification. These tuners resemble the vintage oval knob of my original. A perfect and better replacement. Now my Squire plays like a Fender. Maybe even better.

Put a set of these on the Fender "Robert Cray" custom shop neck recently installed on my MIM "Roadhouse Special" Strat.

The guitar has never held tune better while retaining the original Kluson machines appearance.

Highly recommended.
