        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!

        Work fine but a bit ugly

        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.

          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.

              They are an improvement, however they are a bit too slow for my taste.

                I love these tuners; having tried all brands, these Hipshot are the simplest to install with no holes to drill and a great look and feel to them.

                              Extremely high quality tuners, they feel great and they are very precise and very easy to use, most important they will definitely hold tuning like a pro. Very happy with this purchase, a very good replacement for my stock ESP locking tuners. I'd definitely recommend this product, doesn't matter if you are a pro or not.

                                  I've tried a lot of tuners (Sperzel, Schaller, Gotoh, Steinberger, etc.) and these are the best.

                                  Purchased these in chrome for a 2011 Gibson Les Paul Studio 50's Tribute (w/ Humbuckers) to replace the Kluson vintage style that would not stay in tune. Problem solved! The new Hipshots look great and perform very well. The existing screw holes were usable but be careful when inserting the new ones. Excellent upgrade, great product. Will purchase more of these.

                                    I repaced the original ESP LTD VIPER 301 tuners that never stayed in tune. These 6glo Grip-lock tuners are amazing! Made of all metal, they stay in tune even after a few days. They're very easy to install and operate. They work just as good or evern better than the locking tuners that come with the Gibson Les Paul standard 2008. Very Pleased.
