TonePros Kluson KB3 guitar tuning machine was inspired by today's professional guitarists who want to retrofit newer guitars for vintage mass and tone. Now even older instruments that have been modified can be returned to a more vintage weight and mass. TonePros now makes this possible with high technology and quality, with a new 15:1 Tuning Ratio, quality gear components, and the tightest tuning feel of any tuner of this format. TonePros Kluson B3 tuners fit any guitar with 25/64ths large hole/bolt bushing format without modification. B3 series tuning machines come with the same vintage Butterscotch Keystone buttons of the 33 series. Expect improved tuning performance with vintage appearance. 16:1 gear ratio, 25/64" shaft size. Retrofit your vintage guitar with no modification.

Tuning machines may not be the most glamorous of upgrades, but nothing sucks worse than a guitar that won't stay in tune. If you need to upgrade a guitar with the old school Gibson Deluxe "Green Keys" style tuning machines and don't want to alter the appearance, these are the way to go. I installed them on a 2007 SG Special that wouldn't stay in tune for love nor money, and it was a 100% drop-in installation, no modifications necessary. The new Tonepros Kluson machines are a vast improvement over the old stock tuners. Better mass and weight, much nicer, more resistive feel, way better gear ratio, and best of all, rock solid tuning stability. My SG that wouldn't stay in tune through one song stays in tune for days now. Minor criticisms: 1) The tuner buttons are pre-aged to a butterscotch color instead of the traditional mint green Gibson color, so who knows what color it will turn in twenty years or so. 2) They are a bit pricey, but, hey, you gotta be in tune.
