I find these tuners to be a bit ugly with the way the adapter (UMP) overlaps on a Les Paul. Neither the plates or the machine heads sit exactly flush against the headstock. In addition, the posts are just barely long enough to get the strings through because of these silly UMP plates. However, with that said, the tuners do work, keep the guitar in tune and are fairly smooth. But they aren't as seamless a product as say Fender locking tuners. They look a bit clunky. Would never put them on a really high end guitar.

      Best locking tuner EVER!

      Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip-Lock Locking Guitar Tuning Machines 3+3:

      I've tried many different locking tuners over the years, and this is the best I've ever tried. My guitar went from constantly slipping out of tune, with less than 5 minutes of play, and being a total pain to get precisely in tune in the first place, to easily tuning up with a strobe in seconds, and staying in tune for an entire practice session, never needing to so much as make a minor adjustment!

      Comments about Hipshot 6GLO Grip-Lock Locking Guitar Tuning Machines 3+3:

      These are good, solid tuners. Very smooth. They seem to be very well made and do exactly what they are supposed to do. The locking knobs are comfortable as well. They don't dig into your fingers like the Sperzel tuners. Keep in mind that these are NOT a direct replacement for full size tuners. They are about the same size as Grover Mini tuners. I will definitely be using these on my next build.

        Extremely high quality tuners, they feel great and they are very precise and very easy to use, most important they will definitely hold tuning like a pro. Very happy with this purchase, a very good replacement for my stock ESP locking tuners. I'd definitely recommend this product, doesn't matter if you are a pro or not.

        Purchased these in chrome for a 2011 Gibson Les Paul Studio 50's Tribute (w/ Humbuckers) to replace the Kluson vintage style that would not stay in tune. Problem solved! The new Hipshots look great and perform very well. The existing screw holes were usable but be careful when inserting the new ones. Excellent upgrade, great product. Will purchase more of these.

          I repaced the original ESP LTD VIPER 301 tuners that never stayed in tune. These 6glo Grip-lock tuners are amazing! Made of all metal, they stay in tune even after a few days. They're very easy to install and operate. They work just as good or evern better than the locking tuners that come with the Gibson Les Paul standard 2008. Very Pleased.

              I have a les paul with the vintage tuners on it, and it never kept tune, then bam, slap on a set of these and its way more stable. They are easy to install too! The screw holes on them kinda lined up with the existing holes on my guitar, but I went ahead and used the mounting plate still. Very happy with this upgrade.

                      I would tell anyone to install these on any guitar that is not a Floyd rose system, the locking nut does this w/out this product, they are about as hard to install as changing your strings, the only thing I would suggest is using a drill for the set screws, and you may need to drill out the peg holes very easy if you use common sense while doing this

                        This is my second pair of the hipshot tuners and I still really like them. They work great and hold a good. The only I didn't like is that the holes on the tuners don't match up on the back of my SG neck that I installed them on but I still was able to get on there no problem. The new holes are just about an eighth of an inch higher than the originals.

                            Install couldn't have been easier. Took 25 minutes to unstring, remove original parts (from a Gigson SG), install nuw tuners, re-string and tune. Thesr tuners are rock solid.
                            The locking mechanism of the Hip Shot 6glo works flawlessly. Added new strings after installation and after a full day in the studio they were still in tune.

                              I always get these tuners because I love the way they look and feel. They are solid and come with a fool proof system of mounting. You can't go wrong with these tuners. I even put them on my Seagull acoustic guitar and they worked great! I use them all the time. My favorite locking tuners. They have not disappointed me yet.

                                  These are excellent machines. I put them on a 2011 epi lp 100. The first box MF sent me was missing one key, so as long as they send the correct number of tuners for your guitar they work great. I still have no idea why they sent an incomplete set to me the first time. They knew there were only five in the box because it came with a note from the tech saying that it only had five machines in the box. So, as long as they send you the correct number of tuners for your guitar they work flawlessly.

                                      Work very well. My first experience with locking tuners. They are very small which is exactly what I wanted. One less star because the nuts and washers are not perfect fishish...but ok.

                                        I used these to replace the OEM tuners on my Godin Fifth Avenue and the original holes were too small. I had to enlarge them (carefully) to obtain a snug and proper fit. I also found that it was possible to install the set backwards if you weren't paying careful attention to the graphics on the instruction card. Nevertheless, I am very satisfied with the tuners.

                                              these are not much harder to install than changing your strings, take your time, all you need for tools are a small hex head screw driver, and a pair of plyers or even better a wrench that fits the nut, and a drill, bottom line why have a guitar that sounds and plays great, that doesn't stay tuned much past the opening strum of a song example your Les Pauls

                                                  Changed the tunera to Hioshot on my Epiphone SG. It was worth the effort.
