Hipshot Grip-Lock Vintage Closed Gear 6-In-Line Tuner Upgrade Kit

About This Item

Install locking tuners on a vintage headstock without drilling!
Give your vintage 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!

Let's face it, guitar tuning machine technology has come a long way since the 'golden age' of guitars. The Vintage Style Grip-Lock Tuning Machines allow you to take advantage of the latest locking tuner technology without having to drill your headstock holes out to 10mm.

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
  • 15:1 gear ratio for precise tuning
  • Compatible with 21/64" (8.5mm) pegholes for vintage-style guitars
  • 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!

Excellent tuners

Installation was easy. Guitar was much more on tune and I believe sounded better. Got rid of the string tree using the staggered set. Very pleased.

Upgrade for JTV69

I removed the stock machines, installed these and a fresh set of strings in about an hour. They have a quality and good looking finish and provide stable accurate tuning. Definitely a step up from OEM at a reasonable price.

Just installed these tuners and so far tuning appears to be more stable - expect all will be well but it has only been a day or two now -

Great tuning machines

These solved the tuning problem with my Strat. The stock tuners were ok but wouldn't stay in tune through a long section. And no more string tree's. Plus the buttons are larger than Fender stock, which I really like. Definitely worth the price.

Easy To Install

I am not very handy when it comes to projects. Even less so following a mild stroke. I have an old Fernandes Tele that had the vintage slotted tuners. I always had a difficult time stringing the B and e strings. I did not want to have to drill any holes to replace tuners. Saw these and decided to try them. As described, very easy to install. Works great. Since I have had almost everything replaced on my Tele I did not have to worry about keeping it in vintage condition. Thanks StewMac.

Perfect retrofit for vintage-style Fender tuners

Very easy to install, no drilling or reaming required. Replaced the vintage tuners on my Clapton Strat in less than 10 minutes. Tuners seem very high quality and guitar stays in tune. I bought the staggered version so that I could ditch the string tree. Very happy with this purchase!
