I've been with Hipshot since 1988. I cannot say that about most companies. I stay because they make fantastic hardware.
Easy to install, easy to use. Make sure they fit the machine heads on your guitar. Not all tuning pegs have the same dimensions and specifications
Look great, work great.
Swapping the hex buttons for these small butter bean style ones was easy - now my thinline Chapman ML3 has vintage style tuning buttons to compliment the vintage vibes of the ice blue metallic finish, and Seymour Duncan antiquity II bridge pickup. It looks and sounds perfect for what I play now.
The pearl tulip buttons look stunning on my Les Paul Grover tuners. Like so many others I prefer them over the bean shaped ones. Thanks to all the reviewers before me to share their photos and experiences on Grover tuners. These Hipshot tuners are the only ones that look good and actually fit. It turned out to be pretty hard to find a dealer in Europe, but did manage to find one in the end.
Great fit and easy install. Looks good compared to stock.
Absolutely love it! I a couple sets of tulip buttons in pearl. Not only does it work great on grover-equipped Les Pauls, it also works great on my PRS.
Best fucking tuners and buttons out there!! I’ve installed over 10 sets in the guitars I’ve owned. Maybe hipshot should hipshoot me a discount.
These are the deco knobs on Grover rotomatics. A little tight to the shaft but with some gentle pressure from a tiny c clamp and everything protected from scratches they went on snugly and work flawlessly! I will use Hipshot products to replace every kidney bean tuner I get for the rest of my life!
They work fine on the Grover tuning machines that came with my 2017 J-45 Standard. They're not what I would call "pearl" but I knew that going in and I got exactly what I wanted. Thanks.
Wanted a little more flair than just all black hardware. Went with pearl butter bean. Turned out nice. The Grovers have the half moon mini shape, but the butter bean looks nice and I like the dished sides. It makes them easier to get a grip on. They are a perfect fit on Grover tuners.
I changed all the hardware on a new USA Gibson explore to gold. The explorer comes with mini rotomatics and the pearl tulip tuner buttons do for and function perfectly. And replace the kidney beans that I hate. Makes the guitar I must say!
I purchased a set of 6 tulip style (D04) tuner buttons in Pearl color and I couldn't be happier. I installed them on Grover sealed tuners on a 2015 Gibson Memphis ES-339, and they went on easily. I was a little concerned about the color because the Hipshot on-line "catalog" color is a darker hue, almost green. Fortunately another buyer has posted a couple of pics of how they look installed, and that gave me confidence to buy them. They have a vintage pale-yellowish pearloid color. In dim light, the color is a little darker, perhaps hinting at a bit of green if you use your imagination. To my eyes they match the old-school vintage Kluson style single ring tulip pearloid buttons remarkably well. Very happy. Thanks, Hipshot!
Worked well to replace Grover buttons! Though I did lose the smooth tuning tension adjustment of the original screw, these just go on until they're tight enough and have that specific tension. If you try to increase that tension by tightening further, they could crack/break (this is for the pearl tulips). They still work just fine though for me. A purist wouldn't like the look up close, but looks perfectly fine up on stage.
I put your Amber Tulip buttons on my Grover tuners and they look awesome!!! Thank you!
I like Grover Locking Tuners but just not a kidney bean key button fan. Hipshot's buttons look great and are super easy to install.
Look amazing, work perfectly, what more is there to say?
Love the look of these on my Custom Shop Jackson SL1!!! Have since put them on all my Jacksons! Fit right on the stock tuners with no issues.
great and beautiful tuners ! Perfect for my Beetle-model headstock
The buttons that came with my elite telecaster looked too modern. but now I updated them with the buttons D05 Butter Bean from Hipshot and the guitar looks amazing. the shaft is the exact same measure as the fender locking tuners, so it all took me 5 minutes to replace used the screws that came from hipshot that were prettier and now my tele looks a bit more vintage. I will not say i'm playing better now, but i'm not playing worse. ha! Now it's a stunner! Truly a perfect job from these guys at hipshot. This is top tier craftsmanship. And they were REALLY helpful with all my questions about sizes and sent me all detailed measurements and followed up on my quest to make this happen. Josh and Oscar from Hipshot really went the extra extra mile to help me. Cheers guys!
Replaced my Fender locking tuner pegs perfectly
These fit Grover Rotomatic tuners. The Tulip style looks amazing on a DEAN GUITAR with the V headstock! Really suits it and couldn't be happier!
These fit the Ibanez 8 string tuners on the Ibanez RG8. They also fit Agile Intrepid 8 string. Look amazing and have weight and sure quality. Will buy again.
Great tuner buttons they fit right onto my grover tuners
It pretty much fits any brand of die-cast tuner. Really fun customize experience!
Just built 3 guitars for myself and hipshot product are all I use! The timers are all I use. Love that ‘grip’ style tuning buttons. And not mention the bridges!!
What the world needs, or at least Hipshot locking tuners, is a button to match Gibson "tulip" tuners as used on 335s, Les Pauls, and some customer shop guitars like the Johnny A model. I'd love to have locking tuners on my Gibsons, but don't was that particular aesthetic to change.
I do have a set of the HS buttons on my Fender Strat in black: great tuners!

I bought the d05 and the d08 buttons...very nice...nice people to work with..and shipping was fast
Perfect! I was getting ready to purchase Grover Rotogrips for my Strat until I saw these bad boys. Same concept as the rotogrips, but you can change the buttons to maintain that vintage vibe! Nicely done!
Great tuning buttons for the Hipshot locking tuners. I bought the A12 buttons and they look great and seem very solid. A nice (and affordable) way to dress up the tuners. Wish they offered more color and shape options...
