In a world with a lot of guesswork surrounding replacement parts, proper fits, and innacurate specs, it was wonderful to get something that was a perfect fit. These were a perfect, drop-in replacement for the stock tuners on my new MIM Fender Cabronita. Installation took 5 minutes of work with a hollow tube nut driver (and that included removing the stock tuners). I've done 2 string changes since, and the pins / locking mechanism is as good as any locking tuner I've used in the past 21 years (generally Sperzels). Smooth and accurate gears. Expedient string changes. Staggered, so you can get rid of that string tree if you want and remove another friction / potential binding point. The break angle over the nut is not nearly as dramatic as with the bent steel tree, but the angle is absolutely sufficient and honestly the original angle was (IMO) putting too much pressure on the nut and without lube (e.g. Big Bends Nut Sauce) I could see that being a nasty binding point as well. So, these tuners are not only convenient, but definitely help the overall functionality of the instrument. Great and worthwile purchase.

The 3 treble-string tuner holes are filled with chrome! I wish I had discovered that before I installed them (and back when I bought them). So far I have been unable even to drill the chrome out. Seems like a major quality-control oversight. Advice: Inspect them before you install them.On the plus side, they were easy to install on a strat knockoff--no adjustments needed (other than clearing the chrome out of the holes!)

              These went right in on my Fender Blacktop HH. No fuss no muss. No drilling or extra holes. Couldn't be an easier install. They work great and make changing strings a breeze. They seem to be great quality. I'm happy!

                Comments about Fender Deluxe Locking Machine Heads:

                Very easy instillations compared to the sperzel tunners that I have on many of my other guitars, however they are made for the new stlye tunners on many new fenders models. They are stagged in size and are not marked, there are no instructions included but instillation still takes probably less then 30 minutes.
                Bottom line they work great, go to youtube to see how easy they are to install. Kudos to fender.

                Eased my concern with the 2 pin drop in when they dropped in perfectly. Yes, the mim strat is 2 pin. Thought I'd run across that situation (clogged string holes) stated in the most negative comment but turns out that the mechanism need to be turned way out to clear the string entry - unlike the few turns on the Sperzels on my Strat Plus. Happy camper playing in tune :-)

                Nice, easy, and functional. But doesn't keep my telecaster in tune and that's why I bought them.

                    I was disappointed with the quality of this product and returned them to MF. Since I didn't use them, I can't comment on their functionality. In my opinion they don't compare to Sperzel or Schaller.

                      Been looking for a couple of years to find locking tuners with two pins to fit my Korean made Fender Strat Lite Ash. My long search is over.

                        Mind you, there are varying heights (the three taller posts are E, A, and D. The short posts are G, B, and E. They drop in easily. ALSO, go to the Fender site and they have a really good rule-of-thumb for positioning the string holes when restringing (critical).
