      Comments about Kluson KF6BL F-Style Locking Guitar Tuning Machines - 6-In-line Bolt Bushing:

      I have an almost-new MIM Fender Classic Player Jaguar Special HH. While not exactly vintage, it had the vintage Kluson-style tuners on it. However the holes in the headstock were approximately 9mm and these tuners require headstock holes of 10mm, just like Schaller locking tuners and every other locking tuner out there. So there is no reason to buy these at all -- if you have 10mm holes in your headstock already, there are much better options out there. I didn't feel like drilling my headstock so I put the stock Klusons back in and returned these. Why on earth the stock Klusons are still being made with an open slot at the top of the tuning peg for the strings, rather than a hole through the peg like 99% of tuning pegs out there, I will never know. Gotta love Fender, they keep doing things the original way no matter how lame it is!!!

        Comments about Kluson KF6BL F-Style Locking Guitar Tuning Machines - 6-In-line Bolt Bushing:

        Excellent build quality. Finish is high grade. The mass on these lockers is substantially more than the Kluson non-lockers. One can feel the added weight at the head. It adds sustain and thus diminishes energy transfer to the neck from open strings.They don't lock or work any better than other locking machines; I just like the high quality, style and cosmetics. I have two sets and have used them for three years.

            Comments about Kluson KF6BL F-Style Locking Guitar Tuning Machines - 6-In-line Bolt Bushing:

            I'm not really too sure how "retro-fit" is meant for these tuning machines. I understand that they look like the classic machines. They work quite well, with smooth tuning and locking, and mount well in the existing backside screw-holes. I also enjoy the extra weight they add to my 70's Strat headstock. And they have an unusually cool look with the lock barrels/thumb-screws on top.
            However, I purchased these solely for the reason of NOT having to hassle with popping out the existing bushings, and NOT enlarging the post holes by drilling 25/64 holes. All that is relatively easy, as I've done before. The price tag is heavy on these, considering the sale of the F-lockers at about 1/3 the price at the same time of this purchase. If I'd known I would have to mod the headstock either way, I'd have chosen those, as they are excellent as well.
            With that being said, if you want a cool look, and very solid machines and are willing to spend nearly a Franklin, these are great.

            Do not buy these for tele

            Comments about Kluson KF6BL F-Style Locking Guitar Tuning Machines - 6-In-line Bolt Bushing:

            numerous problems. I have a late 90s American Tele and the high E backplate overhung the headstock so you could see the tuner from the front. On top of that the low E tuner is defective where the gear and cover are lifting off of the backplate. I waited more than my 45 days to put them on and now cannot return. Customer Service?
