This complete 3 per side set of Kluson tuning machines was used on vintage Gibson models such as the Les Paul, SG, 335 and others. Also used on the Epiphone Casino and current Epiphone production of Les Paul and SG 400 models. This model Kluson tuning machine is also a direct replacement for most current re-issue 50's and 60's Gibson production and other series that utilise a vintage style individual tuning machine. These are six individual tuners, 3 per side (not on a plate) just like the originals but with the improved 15:1 ratio. This set comes complete with both bass and treble side tuners, 8.8mm O.D. vintage bushings with 1/4 inch I.D. (part#MB65N US) and mounting screws (TMSC).
Please note: If you are retro-fitting a vintage instrument that has been modified or putting this vintage style tuning machine on a modern instrument you may also need to purchase the part # MB65LUS "adapter bushings" to convert a larger size peghole to vintage size to allow for proper fit and function. Available in both nickel and gold finishes.

Removing the protective film means that the item is not in a re-saleable condition and therefore we cannot accept it back for a refund.
