Old-style, strip-mounted tuning machines impart a real vintage vibe. The posts have the vintage slot and vertical hole so you can insert the string end in before winding for additional security. They are sold in sets of 6 only; Right side or Left side. 15:1 Gear Ratio.


 

 


This GK1RC tuner set mounts on the Right Side
of the headstock as in this example. These tuners require
the Vintage Style tuner hole size of 11/32 inch.

Be Careful with the Screws
Those tiny screws on Vintage Tuners are an issue for lots of people...and have been for many years.  The screws that come with the Gotoh tuners have the same issues.  This seems to be a common issue with all manufacturers.  But, the screws are so small that no tuner manufacturer seems to have found a better solution yet.
 
In most cases, the tiny screws will install easily if a couple of precautions are taken.

1.) Drill a pilot hole for each screw.  Without a pilot hole, the wood may crack or the screw head will break off, or both!

2.) Apply bar soap or candle wax to the threads of the screws.  This reduces friction.

3.) Use the correct size Philips screw driver, so that the screwdriver doesn't slip or damage the screw head.

4.) The screws should mount smoothly.  If you feel resistance or binding or a lot of friction...STOP!  Something is wrong.

These same four precautions should be used for every screw that gets put into guitar necks and bodies.

Great tone, light weight
For those of us more traditional players who are not doing dive bombs on the trem, these slotted tuners offer excellent tuning stability, light weight, and a woodier tone form your guitar. Heavier tuners will indeed help to increase sustain but tend to make the guitar sound brighter. I have several guitars with these tuners and gig 3 to 4 times a month. The hold their tune perfectly! I'm buying another set right now!
