I got these for my 1969 Fender Mustang project and they worked perfectly! Guitar is always in tune, and is super easy to get in tune. Added pearl knobs, and she looks awesome now!

Really happy I went with hip shot and will be from now on.

Bought these to replace the worn out original tuners on my '64 Hagstrom H2. Tuning stability is greatly increased, and the UMPs meant I didn't have to drill into the vintage headstock. Great product.

Review:
These tuners were purchased as part of the customization of a 1964 Hagstrom H-II guitar. These Swedish made instruments have a narrow nut and therefore require a larger angle between the tuner axis and the nut, and a greater distance between the centers of the individual tuners. Because of this, the standard UMPs supplied with the tuners were not long enough.

I contacted Hipshot, gave them the dimensions I required, and they were able to custom manufacture UMPs to my specs. They did a great job, and the custom plates fit perfectly.

The tuners themselves are beautifully finished and have a very smooth action. The locks hold the strings securely and contribute greatly to tuning stability. I ordered these with D08 buttons which resemble the buttons of the original VanGent tuners. They look like they belong on a 60's era guitar.

Overall, I am very pleased with the product and the service provided by Hipshot. It's nice to deal with an American company that still provides personal service. Just be patient, they are very busy.

I bought these as replacement tuners for my warmoth strat which I first equipped with some cheap tuners.

I can only say that the hipshot tuners has been a very pleasant surprize and are without doubt the best tuners I've ever had. The locking function on these are robust and easy to access and use. Tuning the strings are a smooth operation and the tuners lets you do it with highest accuracy.

If I would throw the dice, I would give it a 6 out of 6.
