Great tuners, check your peg hole size first.

By Joseph Goosey

from Grandview, MO

Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip-Lock Locking Guitar Tuning Machines 3+3:

My son and I installed these tuners on his electric guitar. These tuners require a little more than 3/8" dia hole to properly fit. My son's guitar had 5/16" holes that we had to drill out to 3/8" and then sand just a little bit more with a dowel rod and 150 grit sandpaper. After the modification to the peg holes, the installation was a breeze. The brand of Electric Guitar my son has is an Ibanez. I'm only assuming (because I don't own one, and by the pictures) that these tuners are a direct replacement for Fender Guitars. The quality of the tuners is amazing, and the new Universal Mount Plate works AWESOME!! I would highly recommend these tuners to anyone looking to provide a solid upgrade to their guitar!!

      Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip-Lock Locking Guitar Tuning Machines 3+3:

      These are excellent tuners. They are well built, stable and precise -- an instant upgrade for your guitar, and the last set you will ever need. (All my guitars get Hipshot 6GLOs, and my basses get Hipshot Ultralites and Hipshot Vintage bridges.) If your peghead holes need to be enlarged (e.g., Epiphone Les Paul Special), I highly recommend ditching the drill and buying the $3 T-handle reamer from Harbor Freight. This is a much more controllable and less risky way to go. They're so cheap, I bought four of them just to have on hand.

      There is a difference between the 3+3 set (Gibson style) and the 6-in-line set (Fender style), so double check to be sure you're getting the right one for your guitar.

      Also, note that some tuning stability problems are caused by the string binding in the nut grooves, and not by the tuners. If you find that your problems persist, either take your guitar to a tech, or try lubricating the nut grooves with a bit of powdered graphite.

          I put these on my Epi Les Paul and just love them. The new tuners are great looking and provide the tuning stability we all want. Incredibly easy to install, had them changed in 10 minutes and was back to playing.

            These Hipshot tuning machines went on to a collectible instrument that the manufacture didn't make many of...I didn't want to drill holes in my head stock and with Hipshots UMP system, I didn't have too ...they installed easy and neat in just a few minutes and I was able to do it without damaging my collectible instrument.

              I had purchased a Yamaha APX 500 Acoustic guitar from Guitar Center. The first thing I upgraded was the tuner machines. Nut and Saddle was next two in line. Gold Hipshot tuners and Graphtech nut and saddles. I'm glad I did. Everything SOUNDS GREAT together with new GHS strings.

              Installed myself on a Yamaha aex 500 semi hollow body. Follow the directions, everything will work. On 3 plus 3 guitars, make sure to space them out using the notches on the backplates, They work well, a def upgrade over the original tuners.

                I bought these locking tuners to replace the stock tuners on my Ovation which have a pin on top side of tuner. These GripLock Tuners have the screw holes on the bottom. I don't want to drill another set of holes in my guitar to mount them so that they work right.The gold mounting plates that were included just don't look right to me. I'm thinking about returning them, but i just put on a new set of Elixirs that won't reach on my standard tuners. I'm a little disappointed with these tuners.
