The product works pretty well and does exactly as it should making tuning and string changes an absolute breeze. BUT you should be prepared to scramble to supplement parts that are faulty. In my case the top nut barrel had 3 of the 6 where either the chrome completely flaked of or was in the process. I was installing these in a Tremonti SE and already knew I'd have to drill out the holes in these replacements for the original screw to work as someone else had described. In the end, these should have NEVER gone out to a customer. In addition, I also have a tuner that is a little rougher than the other 5.

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

    I have a PRS SE Custom 24 and read on forums that these are a direct fit, and indeed they are. No redrilling and everything fit great. I installed them in less than 5 minutes. They hold the string in well. They make string changes much easier and faster. They seem to be doing a great job thus far of keeping my strings a little more in tune than the stock ones (although the stock ones were pretty decent). They look great and I got them for a good price.

        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.

        Fits PRS SE models without drilling

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

        I installed these tuners without any problems. I did not have any problem with clearance of the string hole above the headstock. I was able to get a .052 sixth string through the hole with a little pulling. They are easy to tighten up, are compact and a perfect fit for any PRS SE model. Staying in tune is now even better with these locking tuners. I will likely get some more for a couple of my other guitars.

        This product is well made and a big improvement over most stock tuners that come on most guitars. The locking feature was it's high selling point to me. The only problem I had was the tuner for the first string on my PRS Custom 24 is tight against the headstock and slightly rubs while turning it. Still top quality and was a good purchase.

        Quality Locking Machine Heads

        By Tony Williams

        from Lincoln CA

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

        These very high quality German made Schaller Locking machine heads drop straight into Larrivee guitars with no modification, and replace the dreadful standard Ping tuners that Larrivee install. The pole is a lot shorter than the Pings, so the string breaking angle is greater from the nut to the machine head - this is an advantage and improves the tone.These machine heads make changing strings easy and fast - and tuning is always consistent as the poles are rock steady with no lateral movement.I highly recommend these for Larrivee guitars - I believe they also will fit the PRS SE guitars.

          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.

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

            I've played professionally for over 20 years and Schaller has always made solid quality products. I believe they made the first floyd rose as I have a 91 Charvel with a Schaller floyd on it. It's pure precision! As for these tuners, my LP studio had tuning issues and I've always had to tune in between songs. After this install the LP has stayed solid. My band jumps from one song to the next so theres very little time for tuning inconveniences in a high energy setting. I'm very happy with this product so far. I would definitely recommend. Only con, If you're not handy with a drill and tools, you might want to have your local luthier or tech perform the install but its fairly easy.

            Two of the six bushings were hard to screw in. Had to use wd40 and pliers which scored the bushing nuts. Thought about sending them back but once I got them on I decided to keep them. The posts were just barely long enough for my PRS SE Santana. Makes string changing easier. Improves tuning stability.

                These Schallers are really great. They install easily and use standard hole placements and sizes. It was a drop in conversion. I like the hefty locking knob too. They look beautiful on my PRS SE Custom.

                Great tuners for a Gibson

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

                I love Schaller tuners, and these work great. They seem to stay in tune well and I like the locking part on the back instead of the front (cam) type lock as they can look ugly. However, here is the reason I am writing this review. The tuner pole length is very short. It only seems to work on 8/16 inch or shorter pegheads. I wanted to replace my Schaller M6 with these but these are not a direct replacement. No pics from MF doesnt help either. I tried them on my Epiphone Les Paul and the holes just barely clear the peghead so I can tune my strings throw. The only guitar they seem to work on is the less thick peghead of Gibson guitars like Les Paul, SG, Longhorn etc.. If you have a Gibson then buy, if not use something else.

                  Bought these for replacement on 2017 prs se tremonti custom every thing lined up perfect and I thought this gonna be a breeze but the screw the factory uses is much bigger than the hole on the set I received and that sucks. Every thing else would have been great so I cant use smaller screw falls out and drilling out every tuner mounting hole well if not dead on screws it up because it looks tapered so gonna send them back and keep researching for a proper fit.

                      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.

                          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 got a Mockingbird contour deluxe, guitar was excellent but the tuners needed Arnold to turn them,these swapped out easy as cake, no drilling, just a small phillips screwdriver. Now stringing is easier with the locking system and the pegs turn like silk, great upgrade, cant say enough, just get them. NO regrets!

                                  I think the tuners are just fine! I've used them on several guitar's and never had a issue. The only issue I have is with servivce I called to get a price quote on a prs and got that with no problem then I wanted a certain color of the model the sevice lady said she sent a email to the wharehouse and they would contact me so I could buy it. Guess what no reply. They dropped the ball on me and that is my only con on this review.

                                      When I received my order it was the wrong tuners. I phoned MF, and they had me drop off the wrong ones to be shipped back, and they sent me the correct ones. However, I paid for brand new, and these were in an open box. (Which is normally discounted, I paid full price)I've ordered quite a bit of merchandise from these folks, and just recently placed another order because of my points, but I have had some less than stellar experiences. I do not trust Musicians Friend.

                                      I gave it four stars because the posts barley expose the string holes, I had to really torque the nuts for clearance. However, once there in, they look great and your good to go!
