Stays in tune better than ever, possibly better tone

Comments about Schaller Locking Tuning Machine Heads 3-per-side:

These are great. Super-Fast string changes, less detuning with my Bigsby tailpiece and it even seems to sound a little better (but that could be the placebo effect). Only problem is that don't sell perloid tuning keys that match my existing and the Gotoh keys I currently have don't fit on these.

    Comments about Schaller Locking Tuning Machine Heads 3-per-side:

    Bought these to replace the tuners on my PRS SE Custom 22. While the screw hole lined up perfectly and the diameter was right, the shaft was too short for the 5/8" thick head stock on this guitar. The string holes just barely cleared the locking nut, and with the hole very close to the top of the shaft there is very little shaft protruding above the nut. In reading some of the other reviews it seems many people are okay with this, and that the tuners work fine this way (which makes sense since the string doesn't have to wind around the peg), but if I'm paying this much for a quality set of machine heads I expect them to fit perfectly. In doing some research I found that Schaller does make a longer-shafted version of these, but they are a special order item.

    Otherwise, the quality of these tuners is excellent; if I'm not mistaken Schaller makes the locking machine heads for Fender, which I have on my Strat and are very high quality. They feel very solid, and I'm sure they would be a great addition to any guitar they fit properly.

          Comments about Schaller Locking Tuning Machine Heads 3-per-side:

          I typically read reviews before buying, so I was pleased that a few people addressed my exact situation: replacing the stock tuners on my PRS SE Mikael Akerfeldt signature model.

          As stated, they were an easy drop-in replacement for this guitar, and what a difference! Smooth as butter, but more importantly for me, they are locking tuners and are very easy to use.

          PRS, take note: You make fantastic guitars, and I've also owned a USA-made Custom 24, which I've passed along to my son. Your locking tuners are fine, so why not put them on ALL of your guitars? Does it cost that much? Instead, I gave my money to Schaller.

          My only complaint? These apparently aren't available in gold, which would have matched the other hardware on my Akerfeldt sig.

              Got these tuning machines to replace the stock tuners in my PRS SE 245 Soapbar. Perfect match for the replacements, no drilling necessary. String changes are a breeze, they look great and most importantly the guitar stays in tune. It's not listed anywhere on the MF website but these are the M6 set from Schaller - reliable and steady.

                Purchased these to replace the low-grade factory tuners on one of my acoustics, easy to install and you wouldn't think tuning machines make a huge difference in sound but in this case they do. Makes restring a breeze, highly recommended if you're looking for tuning machines.

                    I install the Schaller's on all my guitars that have the 45 degree tab on the back. I have 3 PRS SE guitars and I installed the Schaller locking tuners on all of them. Great for changing strings.

                    This product is well made and a big improvement over most stock tuners that come on most guitars. The locking feature was it's high selling point to me. The only problem I had was the tuner for the first string on my PRS Custom 24 is tight against the headstock and slightly rubs while turning it. Still top quality and was a good purchase.
