    These tuners were a "drop in" for my LP Traditional that whent on in 10 minutes and I was restrung in 5. The finish (New Chrome) matched the other hardware on the guitar perfectly. Stringing was a few quick twists of the locking nut and done. The gearing did not change from the previous set of tuners and while not really high (15:1) they provided smooth, acurate tuning action.

    Now thing to note, I did break a couple of strings (hight E and G) while streaching them after mount so you do not want to touq the locking nut down to hard on the unwound strings.

    Other that this these tuners are an excelent product.

    Thank you TonePros and Musicians Friend.
    They are locking Kluson tuners!!! I'll say that again. OK I wont...

    These do not change the classic look of my Cherry Burst LP Traditional AND they are locking Kluson tuners!!!

    The keys are a perfect match for the stock tuners, they have a good ratio (15:1) and smooth tuning.

    If you think the locking system may look a little strange think again. Once they are on you do not notice them at all and string changes are very easy with the top lock system.

    Way to go TonePros!!!
    I use TP tuners, bridges and tail pieces on all my LP's and have never had an issue. For these tuners there are no loose keys, no play in the tuner and very smooth gearing. I've tuned it once when installed and have not tuned it yet in a weeks worth of play, they are very stable.

    The chrome finish does not look cheap and will most likly last as long as the guitar.

    They are TonePros... 'nough said.
    Locking Kluson!!! and they are TonePros!!!

    I will not be changing these out for anything. Very stable tuning, solid mechanical performance and they look stock!

    Great value in my books.

    I replaced the Klusons on my 2007 LP studio. They always seemed kind of a weak link in the gtr. I opted for these replacements as they seemed to be an exact fit-no drilling. Also," i really like locking tuners as they take the hassle out of changing strings. The tuners seemed almost identical to the ""gibson deluxe"" on the gtr....got me worried they WERE actually the same and would have same issues. Some very minor differences", don't know if they are actually made different. Anyway, installation was a breeze. Only issue was the new screws seemed a little larger than the originals, so i used the original screws....in case, i want to remove the tuners in the future and the hole was larger. All holes matched up, one tuner had a hole that was a little tight for the screw, but in the end no prob. Strung up the gtr, tuned it, stretched strings, retuned and then played..and I'll be damned they held very nice. I did put a little dab of nut grease on the nut and the saddles. Played about an hr and all good. Picked up gtr next day and still in tune!! Played with my band last night and it was in tune out of the case and stayed nicely in tune throughout 3hrs of R n R, with lots of bends and hard playing. Only minor tuneups required.. All In all a nice product and an easy intstall.
    A little pricey

      Went straight in my Les Paul Trad no problems.
      Not quite as easy to use as Fender locking tuners
      but they do the job.

        Comments about Kluson KB3L Keystone Locking Guitar Tuning Machines - 3-Per-Side Bolt Bushing:

        Bought these as a direct replacement on my LP Trad. I wanted to keep the same Kluson look, and these did it - essentially the same style as the take-offs but with the locking feature.

        They are an easy bolt-on, provided your existing tuners have the hex nut - took less than 10 minutes in my case.

        The locking mechanism works really well so far - easy to install the locking nut, does what it's intended. Read a review somewhere that the locking nut on top of the posts were "hard on the eyes" - barely noticeable in my opinion, they look fine, and very happy with them.

        Finally, ordered these using MF's concierge service, and they were very helpful. I have a music store literally down the road, but their service doesnt even come close to MF.

              I installed these on a epi les paul studio, they fit perfect. I have to use vise grips to get the small strings tight enough so the string does not slip, wish I did not make this purchase! They are hard to look at as well.

                I'm not sure what all guitars these will be a direct replacement for. However look at your current tuners. If they have a washer and a hex shaped nut on the face then these will fit with no modification. If you have round rings only you will need to boar the holes out. Use a very fine bit and set the chuck very low so you don't damage the headstock. I would recommend them if you don't have to do modification or if you don't mind paying a professional to do it. Gibson tuners never seem to stay in tune. These make all the difference.

                  I love these. The original tuners on my '65 ES-335-TD never kept the strings in tune very well. Had to constantly re-tune after every song. These tuners lock the string even after putting on a new set. They may not look exactly like the originals, but they are much better.

                    Bought these for my R9 Les Paul. If you have the push in bushing on your original Kluson tuners you will need to do a slight mod. Will need to get a 10mm reamer to enlarge the holes. Only need to go half way up so the shaft fits, but this will allow you to put your original tuners back in if you want to return it to stock. Easy mod. If you have the bolt bushing on top, they will drop right in. Holes line up perfectly in either case.

                        I had to drill out the tuner holes on my 6 year old Les Paul. The way the locking piece screws on from the top, makes my guitar JUST fit in the case. They don't really show how tall they really are in the pictures presented on the website.
                        Nice look to them, and they lock the string
                        They seem solid and turn with ease
                        They are more expensive than other locking tuners
