The open back tuners are a nice compact size which works very well on a wide variety of instruments that I build including 10 string mandolins to 10 string bouzoukis and even ukuleles as well as guitars. Time to order some more!!!!
Have a set of 7 installed on an Ibanez with tulip buttons and it just looks fabulous.
Holds tune great, turns great, looks great!
I honestly have nothing bad to say about these tuners. They should come standard on so many guitars.
10 out of 10, would buy again!
I have just installed a set of these tuning machines on a project guitar I recently finished and I'm quite pleased. They're beautifully crafted, extremely smooth and effectively combine the retro look of an open gear tuning machine with a modern mini keystone-like button. They work great, hold the strings securely and tune the guitar very precisely. I'm very pleased with these tuners as I have been with everything I've bought from Hipshots. Great product guys!
