GREAT UPGRADE

By Robert Feak

from North Syracuse, NY

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

Like Rob in an earlier review, I also replaced the tuners on my PRS SE with the Schallers. And they were indeed a perfect fit on the SE. However, this was my 2nd replacement, as I replaced a set of Gotoh locking tuners that I put on in place of the original PRS tuners. The Gotohs were decent and they worked fine, it's just that they were a little tricky engaging the locking mechanism, particularly on the B and E trebles. Not an ideal situation when you need to change strings quickly. No such problem with the Schallers; just thread your strings through, turn the locking knobs, and you're rocking! Excellent product, and highly recommended.

Great Heads But...

By Jon Bell

from Charleston, SC

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

Overall I am very happy with these new heads. I installed them on my Gibson Less Paul Special 2. However, the lack of documentation is discomforting. I bought these heads assuming I could just drop them in and start playing again but that wasn't quite the case in my experience. Apparently the Special 2 has slightly smaller holes for it's tuning heads (like .050 inches smaller) and they do not fit without some slight modification to the stock. If you use them on a Special 2, you WILL have to make the holes larger. DO NOT DO THIS unless you are experienced and know what you are doing or else you can completely screw up your fretboard and have to buy a new one, which can get pricey. I do highly recommend these heads but I do wish I had known beforehand that I would need to modify my guitar. Just some simple stats on the dimensions would have helped immensely

the best i've ever owned

By James Frank

from Bethlehem, PA

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

i put these on my new Ibanez AS53L. the ones that Ibanez put on in the factory made this beautiful guitar pretty much unplayable, as the tuning machines were the worst ever created (but that's what you get with a cheap new Ibanez these days). i know it sounds like a cliche, but "German engineering" . . . oh my God, the German engineering here is astounding. the precision, the flow, etc. now i have full confidence in my Ibanez guitar, and its ability to stay in tune (or at least get there quickly) while on stage. so important! a must have

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

    Great tuners used them to upgrade my 2016 Mark Holcomb PRS SE. They make string changing a breeze and I believe they hold tune far superior to the stock tuners. These were plug and play they are a direct fit no drilling required. Just unscrew the old and screw in the new.

        Installed on PRS 30th Anniversary Custom 24. (Korea)
        Lines up perfectly. Screws from original PRS tuners are slightly larger.
        Put a little soap on screws to slide in.

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

          The mounting screws line up perfectly with the holes in the head but were slightly thinner than the originals so I had to fill the holes with glue and toothpicks to get the smaller screws to bite the wood. The original screws wouldn't fit through the new tuner housing. Not a big problem but helpful to know in advance.

            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.

              Schaller Tuners

              By Joe

              from Tulsa, OK

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

              There was no way I could keep the junk tuners on my Epiphone on any longer. Took a while to find the right Schaller tuners for the existing holes on the head stock but Guitar Center came through. The strings install a little different on these lockers and you can find a ton of info on Youtube on the correct way to install. I have Schaller lockers installed on my Custom Strat also. Excellent German Precision Machining. Well worth the price.
