I've tried many different locking tuners over the years, and this is the best I've ever tried. My guitar went from constantly slipping out of tune, with less than 5 minutes of play, and being a total pain to get precisely in tune in the first place, to easily tuning up with a strobe in seconds, and staying in tune for an entire practice session, never needing to so much as make a minor adjustment!

I find these tuners to be a bit ugly with the way the adapter (UMP) overlaps on a Les Paul. Neither the plates or the machine heads sit exactly flush against the headstock. In addition, the posts are just barely long enough to get the strings through because of these silly UMP plates. However, with that said, the tuners do work, keep the guitar in tune and are fairly smooth. But they aren't as seamless a product as say Fender locking tuners. They look a bit clunky. Would never put them on a really high end guitar.

        I would tell anyone to install these on any guitar that is not a Floyd rose system, the locking nut does this w/out this product, they are about as hard to install as changing your strings, the only thing I would suggest is using a drill for the set screws, and you may need to drill out the peg holes very easy if you use common sense while doing this

                I bought these tuners for my Gretsch 5420. I wasn't very fond of the stock tuners. These were easy to install and very well made. I like using the Bigsby more. Stays in tune very well. Even if I buy a higher end Gretsch I would put these tuners on.

                    I bought them for a Diy LP guitar kit that I was building. The ones that came with the kit were poor quality. These fit it perfectly and stay in tune forever. I Love them !!!

                      A very good locking tuner. I put them on 2015 LP, and removed the gtune system. These tuners are great! I was thinking when I got my new LP Studio that I would change the tuning system out. When the D tuner did not work I decided to make the change. Instalation was easy enough,and I did not use the mounting plates. Very satisfied, and MF even sold them to me for a matching price I found elsewhere.

                        This is my second pair of the hipshot tuners and I still really like them. They work great and hold a good. The only I didn't like is that the holes on the tuners don't match up on the back of my SG neck that I installed them on but I still was able to get on there no problem. The new holes are just about an eighth of an inch higher than the originals.
