I purchased a set of these to upgrade a Squier CVC Tele and am extremely pleased. These tuners cut a substantial amount of time off of restringing my guitar and provide excellent stability...my guitar stays in tune for weeks at a time now. The gearing on these tuners is massive and the thumbwheels are comfortable to tighten. These seem to be an over-engineered product as they are beefier and more substantial than any other tuners I've had (including Grovers). I liked these enough to order a 2nd set and doubt I'll ever need to replace them. As a bonus, Hipshot aligned the screw holes to fit a vintage style Kluson screw hole (although this uses the wider 10mm opening of more modern tuners), so you don't have a lot of unsightly screw holes in the back of your headstock. I liked these enough to order a 2nd set for my other electric and were just as pleased with the installation and performance on it.

Bought these as replacements for stock tuners on an Ibanez Artcore. Not sure if I'm the dumby or the GC website for this component needs to be improved. The Artcore has a 3 left/3right head stock like a Les Paul. What I received was all right side tuners like you would put on say a Strat. The other thing was it was clear when I opened the box that they had been shipped to someone else who returned them. The bags of screws etc had been opened by someone who tore them open. My guess is someone ordered two sets because the needed 6 in line and they returned the ones they didn't want. The tuners themselves looked great and the feel of them indicated they were solid and smooth - I think I would have liked them. Recommendations - Clarify if these are meant for in line or 3 left/right on the website - Have GC improve their inspection of returned merchandise. This is not the first item I have gotten that was clearly a return for quality reasons.

      Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip Lock Standard Locking Guitar Tuning Machine Set:

      I've used a lot of different tuners on the market. When i went shopping for a set last time I stumbled upon these and decided to try them on my Tele Deluxe. They are without a doubt the best tuners I've ever used. Not only is their operation smooth like butter, they are significantly less bulky than Sperzels or any of the similar to Sperzel locking tuners on the market. I bet these weigh almost half as much and functionally they work fantastic. I can't recommend these enough for someone looking for locking tuners for any kind of guitar. I think I may get a black set for my HM Strat!

      Be careful about "open box"

      Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip Lock Standard Locking Guitar Tuning Machine Set:

      According to the item description, I thought I was getting 3+3, instead I received 6 in line.

      Also, it was not clear that these were returns and should be considered factory seconds.

      Lastly, because I used PayPal, Musicians Friend won't exchange. They'll give a refund, but that will take 2 weeks.

      The Hipshot tuners are fantastic. Just don't buy "open box" if you want the real deal.

          Swapped these into a vintage Ibanez whose stock tuners had seen better days. The swap took all of ten minutes, tuning the new strings was far faster than normal and I was playing with them in no time. Improved sustain and far more accurate tuning than stock tuners. Should have swapped 'em a long time ago.

              Replaced a pair of worn out tuners on a custom shop Stratocaster. Looked at the options available and the tech recommended these above the others. I am stoked that I took his advice.

              Installation was painless thanks to a set of mounting brackets making it so you do not have to drill additional holes in the headstock. I only had one tuner that was a little difficulty installing do to a thread not fitting preferably by hand at the first attempt.

              The tuning ratio on these is a very smooth.
              My only very minor complaint about the locking tuners is the tuning in on the low Estring sticks out when it is properly tightened. But if you are looking for a high quality yet inexpensive set of American made tuning machines for your guitar these are the clear choice.

                I replaced the cheap original tuners on my Squire Bullet and it plays and sounds like a guitar 10x the price. One note, you will need to enlarge the tuner peg holes. Buy a reamer for a few buck and it takes about an hour to replace them.

                    Best tuners I've tried. They turn really smoothly and can be tuned very precisely due to the high 18:1 ratio. The locking feature allows for quicker string changing and more stable tuning, especially on when using a tremelo. These will be my go-to for any future custom guitar builds tuning machine upgrades.

                        I have these tuners in crome installed on a Tele with a Warmoth neck. They work very well and I like the way they look. I ordered this set in black for a new Strat build with a Warmoth neck also. I'm very happy with the quality of the new tuners except for the washers. The washers for the bushing are larger diameter and very thin and flat. The black finish also scratches off the first time the bushing nut is tightened. I replaced the washers with Fender finish washers and they look much better even though they are now crome. This is a small detail and I know I am very picky, but I still like these tuners and I will use them on other guitars in the future.

                            I bought these for my Pawn Shop Mustang build project. They replace a set of Sperzel open back friction lock tuners that were hard to turn and were grippy. The Hipshots have a 18:1 gear ratio [nice!], very smooth turning and the locking mechanism is efficient and easy to use. The guitar is now much easier to get in tune and stay that way. After measuring it seemed that there wasn't quite enough room for them to fit on my short headstock. Todd at TK music suggested installing them at a slight angle pointing to you. This allowed plenty of room for the tuners and a more ergonomic position for your hand. I think these are for 6 in line[Fender style] guitars but the MF web page does not specifically say that. Be sure you order what you need, 3+3 and 6 in line atr NOT interchangeable.

                            Bought these to replace the stock tuners on my Gibson Les Paul Studio, not because of tuning issues but to make changing strings easier ( I hate string winders! ). They look and work great, lock the string in and tune and off you go after giving the string a couple of tugs to strech it in. Only problem was with installation, the locking knob won't let you get a good seat on the positioning screw with the screwdriver and the positioning holes didn't line up quite right so I had to "fudge" the screws in. Minor issues but still issues. Other than that, perfect!
