    Comments about Schaller Locking Tuning Machine Heads 3-per-side:

    As other reviewers have mentioned, these are Schaller's M6 locking tuners. I purchased them for my Ibanez Artcore AM-53, and they were a drop-in upgrade. They were probably unnecessary, but I've been spoiled by the restringing ease and speed, as well as the tuning stability, on my other locking tuner-equipped guitars.

    The Schaller M6s didn't disappoint. The tuners themselves are rock solid and installation was a breeze -- no modifications required. I installed them about two weeks ago and I still love them. Tuning stability seems to be a little better, and they cut my restringing time almost in half for this guitar.

    Great replacement tuners for PRS SE

        Comments about Schaller Locking Tuning Machine Heads 3-per-side:

        The 3 on a side tuners were a direct replacement for my PRS SE singlecut. No drilling required. Before, if I did a hard bend on my bass E string, it would pull it out of tune quite drastically. That is not a problem anymore, not to mention the added ease of string changes.

          Comments about Schaller Locking Tuning Machine Heads 3-per-side:

          Bought these to replace the tuners on my PRS SE Custom 22. While the screw hole lined up perfectly and the diameter was right, the shaft was too short for the 5/8" thick head stock on this guitar. The string holes just barely cleared the locking nut, and with the hole very close to the top of the shaft there is very little shaft protruding above the nut. In reading some of the other reviews it seems many people are okay with this, and that the tuners work fine this way (which makes sense since the string doesn't have to wind around the peg), but if I'm paying this much for a quality set of machine heads I expect them to fit perfectly. In doing some research I found that Schaller does make a longer-shafted version of these, but they are a special order item.

          Otherwise, the quality of these tuners is excellent; if I'm not mistaken Schaller makes the locking machine heads for Fender, which I have on my Strat and are very high quality. They feel very solid, and I'm sure they would be a great addition to any guitar they fit properly.

              Comments about Schaller Locking Tuning Machine Heads 3-per-side:

              I typically read reviews before buying, so I was pleased that a few people addressed my exact situation: replacing the stock tuners on my PRS SE Mikael Akerfeldt signature model.

              As stated, they were an easy drop-in replacement for this guitar, and what a difference! Smooth as butter, but more importantly for me, they are locking tuners and are very easy to use.

              PRS, take note: You make fantastic guitars, and I've also owned a USA-made Custom 24, which I've passed along to my son. Your locking tuners are fine, so why not put them on ALL of your guitars? Does it cost that much? Instead, I gave my money to Schaller.

              My only complaint? These apparently aren't available in gold, which would have matched the other hardware on my Akerfeldt sig.

                  Got these tuning machines to replace the stock tuners in my PRS SE 245 Soapbar. Perfect match for the replacements, no drilling necessary. String changes are a breeze, they look great and most importantly the guitar stays in tune. It's not listed anywhere on the MF website but these are the M6 set from Schaller - reliable and steady.

                    I changed out the stock tuners with these and they make a great difference in tuning stability and tone. They give greater confidence that your guitar will stay tuned.

                      Purchased these to replace the low-grade factory tuners on one of my acoustics, easy to install and you wouldn't think tuning machines make a huge difference in sound but in this case they do. Makes restring a breeze, highly recommended if you're looking for tuning machines.

                        I put these tuners on a Gibson SG, what a huge improvement...on the Gibson's, you will need to drill holes,
                        but, it is only one for each tuner, It is pretty easy...and when, they are installed, changing your strings...you
                        will not believe how fast and easy it will be,...they keep strings in perfect tune....even the G...that likes to go
                        out on the unisend bend. I shall be installing these tuners on all my guitars. Absolutely great....!

                            I install the Schaller's on all my guitars that have the 45 degree tab on the back. I have 3 PRS SE guitars and I installed the Schaller locking tuners on all of them. Great for changing strings.
