OVERVIEW

The end of all tuning problems!

Brushed-finish Fender Schaller Locking Tuners provide solid tuning stability by clamping the cut end of the string with a hand-tightened lock screw. There's no play in the string and you tune normally. A great way around locking nut systems that don't allow tuning on the fly. Highest quality manufacture, Schaller Locking Tuners are the same tuners used on Fender American Deluxe Series guitars.

FEATURES
  • Brushed finish
  • Super-high quality
  • Great tuning stability
  • Tune on the fly
  • Same as on Fender's American Deluxe Series

Tuning nightmares? End them forever with genuine Schaller quality.

I have a telecaster, and it was constantly going out of tune during a set. Very annoying. Since putting on the new tuning heads, the tele has needed little tuning. However my guitar guy had to drill wider holes to put them in. He said it wasn't that much of a problem.

I purchased an Eric Clapton signature strat a year ago. It's modeled after a vintage strat like Blackie. I love everything about it except the Gotoh vintage tuners, which make changing strings a frustrating task - at least to me (I know other love them).I read all the reviews and they all commented on how these just "dropped" into strats - but I guess I must be the first person to try this on a vintage strat. I found out that the peg holes on the vintage headstocks are too small to fit these (you need a 10mm opening) so I took my EC strat to my luthier to have the holes enlarged and these tuners installed. When I called him, he said he couldn't install these tuners because the threads were defective - some couldn't be screwed on. Sure enough, two of the tuners had defective threading and I had to return these.So beware - if you have a strat with vintage tuners - these (and the other locking tuners) will NOT fit without drilling.

        Comments about Fender Schaller Locking Tuners:

        I see why the first review has been most Liked. This is a great tuner set.. I would change the ad picture. It is not confusing compare with less expensive Fender shiny finish. There several pictures available which shows clearly the bass side taller than treble side. It is on the headstock..

          Comments about Fender Schaller Locking Tuners:

          Can't argue with Schaller quality. These are drop-in replacements for non-locking Schaller tuners found on newer American Fenders with 2 guide pin holes. They work perfectly, make changing strings and tuning a breeze, and installation took about 5 minutes. Brushed chrome finish is very techy looking and not the most attractive imo, so maybe not the best choice if aesthetics are a concern.

              I put these on my 69 Strat as the original tuners were starting to slip( yes I kept the originals ). They make string changing fast and easy and hold the tuning remarkably well. Excellent quality. Had to increase the hole size to 25/64 and drill for stabilizing pins as they don't use screws like the originals to secure.

                      These were a bit tight installing on my 1987 Fender American Standard. Once I pushed it in as far as I could, I put the Nut on and wrenched it the rest of the way. No problem.
                      I could see thru the string hole at all on all six tuners, but I was able to put the string thru on all six, tighten the back screw and tune on.
                      I am pretty sure I would buy again.

                      The tuners came w/o any instructions at all. I had to put them on 3 times because I did not notice they were staggered in height. Proper numbering on the manufacturers part would have helped ;-) Nice weight to them and they make string changing a breeze. Mt Strat stays in perfect tune much longer with these tuners.
