I have a Squire Strat. I got it before I was actually into guitar, and knew anything about it. After I started seriously playing and learning about it, and learning whe it's tuned right just by hearing it, I realized that the thing would be going out of tune within MINUTES of tuning it. I let this go because I had no knowledge of these tuners, and just assumed nothing could be done. Well, one day, I just got fed up. I asked a few people, and ALL said Grover tuners. I looked here, and was like, Psh, Nah, I'll wait for a new guitar. Well, a month or so later, I really started to get frustrated and decided that even if it helped just a LITTLE bit, it would help. And boy, did it help! These have kept my guitar in tune better than ever. The only time I have had to retune was a day after putting them, and new strings on, and that was about a day later. I know that when I buy a new guitar, I will buy these along side of it.

The tuners themselves work great! They definitely are better than stock squier tuners (big surprise there...)

One big issue though! The screws they come with are horrible!...Read complete review

One big issue though! The screws they come with are horrible! I had 3 of them break on me. If I had to buy these tuners again, I'd buy 3rd party screws from a hardware store. It really was a disappointment.

Great tuners but does not fit all sizes

      Comments about Grover-Trophy 205C6 6-In-Line Guitar Tuning Keys:

      These are great tuners but I would advise to first check your tuner diameter size. I have a Squire Strat and I had to drill out the holes because these tuners are larger in diameter.
      The hole size needs to be .391" diameter. I had to buy a 25/64" drill bit, which is a special size that Home Depot/Lowes don't carry. I had to special order the drill bit.

      Comments about Grover-Trophy 205C6 6-In-Line Guitar Tuning Keys:

      These are the best keys period. I have used them on strats that would not stay in tune because of the tremlo they will really stabilize the neck. Take it from a 35 year pro, you can't go wrong with these keys. They would be a deal at twice the price.

        I put these Grovers on an explorer copy that I've been working on. They are terrific, as you would expect from Grover. It stays in tune and the fit was spot on. Musicians Friend was great. They were shipped on and arrived on schedule. Thx.

        Comments about Grover-Trophy 205C6 6-In-Line Guitar Tuning Keys:

        Grover Machine Heads are very astounding. I put them on my Jackson King V and all my tuning instability is gone. I had to drill new screw holes, no big deal. The Grovers will be a staple in my gear from now. They are the only product that i will give 5 all across the board. Just buy them. I bought two sets, knowing that they will be great. Being a first time user i was blown away. Im having a professional install them on my Ibanez because i dont want to chance screwing that one up. Buy them and you will be pleased.

          Comments about Grover-Trophy 205C6 6-In-Line Guitar Tuning Keys:

          Really great tuning keys. I have a MIM Fender Stratocaster, and it was just set up completely. I was still having tuning issues, however. So with everything else done professionally, I assumed it was the 18 year old factory tuning keys. So far I was right. I think the Grovers are doing a great job. My tuning, while recording, has held in there much better. One thing to note is that I did have to drill out my headstock to get these particular tuning keys to fit. Only do this if you are comfortable with it. If not have a professional do it, they have to fit snuggly. Either way these are definitely worth it for the purposes of keeping in tune, and having keys that will last for years. Plus, they won't break the bank.

          Comments about Grover-Trophy 205C6 6-In-Line Guitar Tuning Keys:

          These are the best tuners I have ever used. Had a set on a guitar 30+ years ago and the quality hasn't changed the least bit.
          These are without exception the best tuners I have ever used. They are not super sensitive and will hold a setting without fail. Musicians Friend has the best prices and the best shipping.
          Exceptional Quality

            I bought these for a JS series king v I'm fixing up and, WOW there was a difference! not only do they tune up perfectly, and stay in tune just as well, but they also went on with no modifications at all to the guitar. I am very impressed with how well they hold up to hard, fast, slayer type riffs, and how stable they are tuning in comparison to the Jacksons. great product, great price, get these and you will be as happy as me with them.

            I ordered 2 sets of in-line Grover tuners to upgrade guitars. These tuners are great. They fit the head without modification, making the installation a snap. oK no longer have to retune frequently. Ordering on-line was easy, and they arrived very quickly.

              Just got these installed in my Squire Tele. Excellent. I didn't like the vintage style tuning posts in my Tele because it was difficult to install new strings-they kept slipping and breaking. I wanted standard tuning posts and these are perfect.

              Bought these and installed them on my Hamer Standard FT (Explorer Shaped). Before (with stock and Gotoh's I installed as well) the switch to Grover locking tuners the guitar wouldn't hold tune to save it's life when soloing. Installed the Grovers, which didn't require new holes to be drilled and made for an easy install, and the guitar now stays in tune basically flawlessly. Couldn't be happier with these tuners, will most likely be installing them on all my gigging guitars eventually, especially at the great pricetag on them!

              Am a life long player of some 45 years. I am pro-level, though it's NOT my job (thank you God). I have probably owned 30 or so guitars and I've swapped out the tuners for Grovers on 8 or 9 of them. When you install Grovers, you have a brand-new guitar! Note: This review was about the 3 per side, but I somehow am on the 6 in-line page. The good news is, all the above apply to 6 in-line too!

                Bought these to replace the cheap Japanese tuners on my old lawsuit strat copy which was constantly going out of tune, problem solved!! These are easy to install ( you may need to drill out the old tuner mounting holes with a 25/64th drill bit as I did ) they are tight, well made and look great, I'll be buying another set for the patrscaster I'm planning . Well worth the money
