Grover 18:1 Sta-Tite (97-18 Series) 3+3 Tuners

About This Item

Grover Sta-Tite™ tuners are a modern version of a vintage design. For 3-left/3-right solid pegheads.

Each tuner features 18:1 gear ratio for fine tuning, a cast baseplate, vintage style scalloped knobs, and nylon worm bearings and tension screw for smooth operation.

Sets of 6 (3-left/3-right). Each set includes mounting screws and knurled press-fit peghead bushings. 11/32" (8.73mm) diameter pegholes required.

Also available for slotted pegheads.

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 #1711 Depth-stop Drill Bit (No.50 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.

Superb quality/price ratio

By

Verified Buyer


I've had these before in nickel but these gold ones are to replace the nickel ones on my Martin mahogany OO. Just an aesthetic choice. They are excellent. 18:1 ratio and I don't think can be bettered for the price.

I have used these tuners on several custom built guitars, guitar conversions and as replacements. 18:1 is my go to choice for most of my instruments.

Sta-Tite didn’t

I have used these tuners in the past and had very good results. One set I bought recently was loose between the worm gear and shaft gear. The guitar was hard to tune and wouldn’t stay in tune. Tightening the tension screw didn’t help. One email to Stew-Mac customer service and they sent me a new set! The new set worked great. Thanks Stew-Mac customer service!

great tuners

I got these to replace the 3 on a plate tuners that came on my 1964 Guild M-65 3/4 I recently found on eBay The originals (which were Grovers, I think) still worked well but were 12:1 which made tuning a bit tricky on a 23 3/4 inch scale guitar. The light weight contributes to the acoustic response of the guitar which is used for jazz. The reduced gearing and butterbean knobs make tuning a pleasure for these 77 year old arthritic fingers.

This is my third set of these tuners and although I have had problems with the others this set so far are doing the job. I still feel that the nylon worm gear bushing that Grover uses on these is not strong enough for the job it is being ask to do the treble side seem to do ok but the bass side just cant take the tension and after while it fails and the bushing deforms. They need to us stronger nylon just my two cents for what its worth. The customer service Stew-Mac has given me on the issues with these has been the best service I have ever had so thank you Stew-Mac will always come here first for my parts. Mik

These things are great. They are light, well-made and have 18:1 ratio. I pretty much need an excuse to use anything else now. Also, StewMac shipping is fast - it's nice knowing I won't have to wait for my stuff :-)

11/32" hole too large. Be careful. Not liking press fit bushings. Gonna scrap these and get something better that screws in.
