Hipshot Grip-Lock Open Gear 6-In-Line Tuner Upgrade Kit

About This Item

Install modern open gear locking tuners without drilling!
Give your 6-in-line headstock a much-needed makeover with the Hipshot Tuner Upgrade Kit. You can install them on any headstock and tuner spacing, without drilling!

Grip-Lock tuners take the chore out of string changes and increase your tuning stability at the same time. Instead of your old, time consuming string change ritual, simply pull the string through the hole and tighten the thumbwheel. A small pin inside the string post will grip your string and lock it in place for worry free tuning!

The patented Universal Mount Plate (UMP) included free in this kit means your tuners will retrofit without drilling or screwing. The special tabs in the plate securely hold your tuning machines in place to make install a breeze!

  • Grip-Lock pin and thumb wheel system
  • 18:1 tuning ratio for super fine adjustment
  • Compatible with 13/32" (10mm) pegholes
  • String post hole fits strings up to 0.060"
  • Set of 6 includes mounting screws, threaded bushings, and washers
  • Cast housing

Available with regular or staggered posts. Staggered posts have different heights giving each string the ideal break angle over the nut. They reduce buzz at the nut and free your guitar from string trees forever!

Also available for 3+3 pegheads.

Excellent locking tuners

By

Verified Buyer


Bought this kit to replace the units in an affordable Tele. If you can work a wrench (or socket) you can swap these. Dead simple. So far they seem high quality and smooth. Recommended.

I replaced another notable company's tuners with these. I liked the other ones, they always worked very well, but the lower ratio was often troublesome for very fine tuning. The Hipshot's don't have that problem. Fine tuning is fast and easy and the mounting plates are a genius idea that make keeping the keys perfectly aligned easy. I even like the all black look (except for the gear).

I wish I had measured my headstock width before. I got the staggered tuners and they just barely fit in my headstock. That's my fault though, not the product's.

Overall very satisfied.

Bought the black Hipshot tuners. Install was easy, easy, easy. Didn't use all the hardware (adapter plate kept the tuner from poking through on the head) . Mounted to head with screws that are supplied. Much better tone and much easier tuning and stability. Still had to use string trees even though the post are staggered? No problem. Overall, it was "easy as pie".

Hipshot tuner upgrade replacement

By

Verified Buyer


Replaced Fener Alkaline Trio tuners with Hipshot Kit....Had to redrill holes but no big deal...great tuners. I would recommend them for any upgrade and the price is right. Very smooth and holds pitch.
Also would recommend string stretcher . Great for new string replacement.
Stew Mac does it again.
