I purchase an inexpensive Aria guitar to fix up. All my friends said "fixing this guitar is like putting lipstick on a pig" guess what with a bone nut & saddle, Lute Hole soundhole cover & Holey guitar strap, the best guitar parts are these Hipshot tuners. This guitar now sounds like a Martin D28. Thank you Hipshot for making such a superb products.
My Son and I installed these tuners on his Ibanez guitar. The Universal Mounting Plate worked awesome!! I will say the Ibanez tuning peg holes are 5/16" Dia. These tuners requires a hole just a little bit bigger than 3/8" Dia. We carefully used drill bits to widen out the hole one size at a time until we reached 3/8". From there, we used a dowel rod and 150 grit sand paper to finish the hole to a perfect snug fit. Other than the little extra work at increasing the tuning hole size, the installation was a breeze! I am very impressed with these tuners. The quality of craftsmanship is amazing! Thanks Hipshot!!
