OVERVIEW

Brushed-finish Fender Schaller Locking Tuners provide solid tuning stability by clamping the cut end of the string with a hand-tightened lock screw. There's no play in the string and you tune normally. A great way around locking nut systems that don't allow tuning on the fly. Highest quality manufacture, Schaller Locking Tuners are the same tuners used on Fender American Deluxe Series guitars.

The end of all tuning problems!

FEATURES
  • Brushed finish
  • Super-high quality
  • Great tuning stability
  • Tune on the fly
  • Same as on Fender's American Deluxe Series

Tuning nightmares? End them forever with genuine Schaller quality.

The tuners did come jumbled and not secure. They might want to use twist ties to hold them down Fender/Schaller. These are staggered! They are all the same height but the position of the string holes are different the top 3 are lower and the bottom 3 are higher. Attention to all with vintage style(7.25 radius with kluson style) necks. You will have to drill to make them work. The holes sizes need to be 25/64" bottom of the hole and 11/32" on the top. Yes its odd but if you don't feel good doing always let a pro do it.

I purchased an Eric Clapton signature strat a year ago. It's modeled after a vintage strat like Blackie. I love everything about it except the Gotoh vintage tuners, which make changing strings a frustrating task - at least to me (I know other love them).I read all the reviews and they all commented on how these just "dropped" into strats - but I guess I must be the first person to try this on a vintage strat. I found out that the peg holes on the vintage headstocks are too small to fit these (you need a 10mm opening) so I took my EC strat to my luthier to have the holes enlarged and these tuners installed. When I called him, he said he couldn't install these tuners because the threads were defective - some couldn't be screwed on. Sure enough, two of the tuners had defective threading and I had to return these.So beware - if you have a strat with vintage tuners - these (and the other locking tuners) will NOT fit without drilling.

    Comments about Fender Schaller Locking Tuners:

    Can't argue with Schaller quality. These are drop-in replacements for non-locking Schaller tuners found on newer American Fenders with 2 guide pin holes. They work perfectly, make changing strings and tuning a breeze, and installation took about 5 minutes. Brushed chrome finish is very techy looking and not the most attractive imo, so maybe not the best choice if aesthetics are a concern.

    Comments about Fender Schaller Locking Tuners:

    I have a telecaster, and it was constantly going out of tune during a set. Very annoying. Since putting on the new tuning heads, the tele has needed little tuning. However my guitar guy had to drill wider holes to put them in. He said it wasn't that much of a problem.

        Comments about Fender Schaller Locking Tuners:

        I put these on my 69 Strat as the original tuners were starting to slip( yes I kept the originals ). They make string changing fast and easy and hold the tuning remarkably well. Excellent quality. Had to increase the hole size to 25/64 and drill for stabilizing pins as they don't use screws like the originals to secure.

                Comments about Fender Schaller Locking Tuners:

                These were a bit tight installing on my 1987 Fender American Standard. Once I pushed it in as far as I could, I put the Nut on and wrenched it the rest of the way. No problem.
                I could see thru the string hole at all on all six tuners, but I was able to put the string thru on all six, tighten the back screw and tune on.
                I am pretty sure I would buy again.

                The tuners came w/o any instructions at all. I had to put them on 3 times because I did not notice they were staggered in height. Proper numbering on the manufacturers part would have helped ;-) Nice weight to them and they make string changing a breeze. Mt Strat stays in perfect tune much longer with these tuners.

                Comments about Fender Schaller Locking Tuners:

                After I finally got all six tuners installed I noticed some were staggered. No instructions in the packaging to tell you the lower holes go in the top of your headstock & the lower holed pegs go on the low pitched strings. So I had to re-install them all over again. So no instructions and very poor packaging as the tuning pegs were all loose as another customer had stated.

                  These tuners gave my strat more of a full sound and with them being a locking head tuner I can use my quiver/whammy/cry stick or bar what ever you want to call it. It allows me to use it and still stay in tune. I like them a lot and I would recommend them to anyone
