    Great fit

    These are exact replacements for the Grover locking tuners. I bet these will fit any of the tuners with the nut on the front. Adds the nostalgic feel and when using the string over the top then regular threading method, will not slip.

    Great replacement tuners!

    The tuners on my 1998 Epiphone Les Paul needed replacing so I chose the Gibson vintage tuners because they matched the look of the original tuners.
    The Gibsons were just slightly bigger but with a bit of tweaking got them to fit perfectly. No more buzzing or tuning problems! I just wished I had of done this a lot sooner.

    Great on my '74 SG

    My new vintage tuning machines heads work and look great on my '74 Gibson SG. Stays in tune and maintains the classic SG look.

    Vintage Tuning Machine Heads

    Have recently bought and installed four sets of Gibson Deluxe and Kluson machine heads. Installation was simple, and they keep my guitars in tune. They look beautiful too.

    These are fantastic classic machines that tighten up nicely. NO MORE BUZZING! so happy! I would give a five star rating, but apparently that is described as being blown away... not to say i'm not thoroughly satisfied. GREAT PRODUCT... EVEN BETTER SERVICE!

    Vinrtage Nickel Machine Heads w/Pearloid Butons (Nickel)

    Had to enlarge the holes, which was no problem. The performande is outstanding, Thanks: Chris

    Not for me

    I have these tuners on my Gibson. They don't work well, so I removed them. When I did, I saw they have "P.W." stamped on them. They are made by Ping Wells, as Taiwanese company with factories in China. Apparently, Ping also makes Gibson bridges and tailpieces. There are much better options out there, including Klusons (made in Korea) and Gotoh (made in Japan). Kluson also sells American made bridges and tailpieces that more closely match Gibson's own vintage specs (brass saddles, steel posts, aluminum tailpieces).

    Still working through this...

    I have a 2013 Gibson SG Standard that came with these tuners. I am a year later shipping the guitar back to Sweetwater to have them check it out due to tuning stability issues. I'm glad but surprised to see the positive reviews here. I did a google search trying to troubleshoot the problem and it seems that my issues with these tuners are as much the norm than the exception.
