A better tuner for your Gibson or Epiphone

By Scott B

from Jackson, CA

Comments about Gibson Modern Gold Machine Heads:

I was very satisfied with these tuning keys after my purchase. Although not specifically stated in the ad description, these tuners (if they are like most of the high end Grovers) come with an 18:1 gear ratio which is superior to the green key machine heads which only have a 15:1 gear ratio. (I am also not certain about this, but I've also heard that the stock keys that come with the Epiphones only have a 14:1 gear ratio.) As far as the installation of the tuners, there is no drilling required, and the holes on the headstock do not need to be reamed or drilled out. It took me only 30 minutes to install these tuners on my Gibson Les Paul Studio, and since then I have not had issues with my guitar going out of tune. The tulip head is also very classy.

Works on Epiphones

By David Kelley

from Ashland, OR

Comments about Gibson Modern Gold Machine Heads:

I just wanted to write this review to any Epiphone owners know that I was able to install these on my Epiphone Sheraon II with no modifications whatsoever. They look beautiful and hold a tuning much better than the stock epiphone machine heads.

Direct no hassle replacement on an Epiphone!

By Bob Stigall

from Bristol, Virginia

Comments about Gibson Modern Gold Machine Heads:

I had Grover gold tuning keys on my Epiphone Ultra ii Les Paul that had the "kidney bean" tuning keys , and I wanted that vintage look of the tulip type keys. I researched to make sure that I wouldn't have any issues of drilling /or ferrel diameter, and just as I read , these went right on with no problems whatsoever! Now, the Les Paul has that "vintage" look as well as retaining it's value because of no major cosmetic changes due to installation of these machine heads. As always, I can count on the folks at Guitar Center to meet my needs on accessories either online or a nice day trip to a Guitar Center! Thanks!

Tuning machines-- not machine heads

By James

from Chicago

Comments about Gibson Modern Gold Machine Heads:

I've noticed this is a nearly universal error on the music gear sites. These are called "tuning machines". The "machine head" is--duh--the head part-- the part you grab and turn. Get it right, musical instrument retail industry.
