Waverly guitar tuners, vintage oval knobs, for solid headstock, 3L/3R
The choice of pros.
Waverly tuners have been the choice of some of the most renowned luthiers and boutique guitar brands for years: Santa Cruz Guitars, Collings, Martin, Huss & Dalton, Bourgeois, Gibson, Breedlove, Galloup Guitars, Larrivée... the list goes on and on.
These tuning machines have a steel baseplate with the authentic 30s footprint, and feature stainless steel worm gear with nylon bushings and machined bronze alloy string post gear for ultra smooth tuning; the authentic vintage oval knobs (as found on the late '30s Martin D-28 played by Tony Rice) are solid brass and not die-cast, and they have the historically correct shape, so they can be used to replace worn tuners on a vintage guitar (they're also available in relic nickel finish).
- 16:1 gear ratio
- 1/4" diameter brass tapered string posts
- steel baseplate
Shipped with hex bushings for 11/32"(8,73mm) mounting holes, conversion bushings are available for installing these tuners into larger Gotoh, Grover or Schaller mounting holes; vintage-style slotted mounting screws are also included.
For the moment we only have the standard nickel finish version in stock, but these tuners are also available in relic nickel finish: don't hesitate to contact us for more information!
