I purchased a set of these to upgrade a Squier CVC Tele and am extremely pleased. These tuners cut a substantial amount of time off of restringing my guitar and provide excellent stability...my guitar stays in tune for weeks at a time now. The gearing on these tuners is massive and the thumbwheels are comfortable to tighten. These seem to be an over-engineered product as they are beefier and more substantial than any other tuners I've had (including Grovers). I liked these enough to order a 2nd set and doubt I'll ever need to replace them. As a bonus, Hipshot aligned the screw holes to fit a vintage style Kluson screw hole (although this uses the wider 10mm opening of more modern tuners), so you don't have a lot of unsightly screw holes in the back of your headstock. I liked these enough to order a 2nd set for my other electric and were just as pleased with the installation and performance on it.

Not For Stratocaster

Recommend by Musicians Friend rep, however will not fit Stratocaster without drilling/widening pin hole, also
would leave original screw hole at top. Just contacted MF to return.

excellent tuning machines

By /Y/

from Philly

Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip Lock Standard Locking Guitar Tuning Machine Set:

Just put these on my telecaster. Great tuning stability, and once you go 18:1 you won't be happy with anything else. It's not often you see open gear tuners on electric guitars these days but it doesn't seem to be any problem here. These are fairly light weight (nice) with shorter posts than traditional. Highly recommended!

Love my Hipshots

By Shadowboxer

from Western Mass.

Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip Lock Standard Locking Guitar Tuning Machine Set:

I have a couple of sets of these Hipshot Locking tuners and will likely buy a third set for a parts strat in the works. Very smooth, locking works perfectly, 18:1 ratio is nice for fine tuning (and is similar to the tuners on my acoustics). I like them as much as, or more than, my Gotoh 510's. No idea why one respondent couldn't get them to work; they are dead simple to install and use and, as another reviewer said, seem over-engineered, if anything.

Above the call of duty!

By Tad Bit Tipsy

from Florida

Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip Lock Standard Locking Guitar Tuning Machine Set:

These tuners are great. The action is smooth and tight. The quality of the components is incredible. The best part is the locking part. Holds the strings in the peg holes, very nice. Less mess at the pegs. The pegs are short too and don't stick way out of the head. This holds your strings closer to the head and pulls them taught across the nut, also a great plus. I got the black to put on my Les Paul Studio, going chrome-less and these are nice. Got rid of the chrome rings on the front of the head which I really wanted. I also have to say kudos to the hipshot team for quick response to all my questions and they even exchanged a few parts. Plus these are Grade A+ American made, this I hold true to my heart, hard to find nowadays. Plan on putting some on my G&L Skyhawk soon.

      Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip Lock Standard Locking Guitar Tuning Machine Set:

      Best tuners I've tried. They turn really smoothly and can be tuned very precisely due to the high 18:1 ratio. The locking feature allows for quicker string changing and more stable tuning, especially on when using a tremelo. These will be my go-to for any future custom guitar builds tuning machine upgrades.

          Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip Lock Standard Locking Guitar Tuning Machine Set:

          I have these tuners in crome installed on a Tele with a Warmoth neck. They work very well and I like the way they look. I ordered this set in black for a new Strat build with a Warmoth neck also. I'm very happy with the quality of the new tuners except for the washers. The washers for the bushing are larger diameter and very thin and flat. The black finish also scratches off the first time the bushing nut is tightened. I replaced the washers with Fender finish washers and they look much better even though they are now crome. This is a small detail and I know I am very picky, but I still like these tuners and I will use them on other guitars in the future.

          Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip Lock Standard Locking Guitar Tuning Machine Set:

          Bought these to replace the stock tuners on my Gibson Les Paul Studio, not because of tuning issues but to make changing strings easier ( I hate string winders! ). They look and work great, lock the string in and tune and off you go after giving the string a couple of tugs to strech it in. Only problem was with installation, the locking knob won't let you get a good seat on the positioning screw with the screwdriver and the positioning holes didn't line up quite right so I had to "fudge" the screws in. Minor issues but still issues. Other than that, perfect!

            I replaced the cheap original tuners on my Squire Bullet and it plays and sounds like a guitar 10x the price. One note, you will need to enlarge the tuner peg holes. Buy a reamer for a few buck and it takes about an hour to replace them.

            Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip Lock Standard Locking Guitar Tuning Machine Set:

            According to the item description, I thought I was getting 3+3, instead I received 6 in line.

            Also, it was not clear that these were returns and should be considered factory seconds.

            Lastly, because I used PayPal, Musicians Friend won't exchange. They'll give a refund, but that will take 2 weeks.

            The Hipshot tuners are fantastic. Just don't buy "open box" if you want the real deal.

                Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip Lock Standard Locking Guitar Tuning Machine Set:

                I bought these for my Pawn Shop Mustang build project. They replace a set of Sperzel open back friction lock tuners that were hard to turn and were grippy. The Hipshots have a 18:1 gear ratio [nice!], very smooth turning and the locking mechanism is efficient and easy to use. The guitar is now much easier to get in tune and stay that way. After measuring it seemed that there wasn't quite enough room for them to fit on my short headstock. Todd at TK music suggested installing them at a slight angle pointing to you. This allowed plenty of room for the tuners and a more ergonomic position for your hand. I think these are for 6 in line[Fender style] guitars but the MF web page does not specifically say that. Be sure you order what you need, 3+3 and 6 in line atr NOT interchangeable.

                I intalled these so called locking tuners on my almost new PRS SE Mike Akerfeldt, first of all, therese are 6 in line...so the 3 higher strings got all messed up and had to install them wrongly.... still i thought they were going to work fine like that... but no, not a single one holds the string correctly... guess I'll just put back the original PRS tuners again... this sucks, really sucks

                  I bought these for my warmoth strat neck (which needed new holes drilled for the screw but the tuner fit perfectly) after hearing all about them from Misha Mansoor. I can say that once installed, these provide the smoothest tuning, the best grip, and because of the 18:1 ratio, actually allow for really tiny adjustments to the tuning. I have tried Gotoh, Grover locking with the thumb wheel, hipshot closed locking, and schaller and I can safely say these are the best!

                                      I've used a lot of different tuners on the market. When i went shopping for a set last time I stumbled upon these and decided to try them on my Tele Deluxe. They are without a doubt the best tuners I've ever used. Not only is their operation smooth like butter, they are significantly less bulky than Sperzels or any of the similar to Sperzel locking tuners on the market. I bet these weigh almost half as much and functionally they work fantastic. I can't recommend these enough for someone looking for locking tuners for any kind of guitar. I think I may get a black set for my HM Strat!
