This set of non staggered 6 in line right handed Gotoh SG381 locking tuners feature a 1:16 gear ratio for tuning up quickly and accurately. Gotoh's Magnum Locking system is operated by a traditional thumb screw on the back of the tuner for quick and easy string changes. The 'Rock-Solid' string post improves the tuning stability of the tuner and stays strong during bending and tremolo use, special elastic parts eliminate any rattle in the post and transmission of string vibration to the instrument is maximised. The tuners are completely sealed and permanently lubricated through Gotoh's 'Lubri-Coat' technology, a coating applied to the worm gear to ensure better contact between the worm and spur gear wheel, backlash is minimised and durability is increased. These tuners have the screw attachment holes offset at a 45 degree angle to the tuner post, this set up is common on a lot of 6 in line headstock designs from Ibanez, Schecter, ESP/Ltd and Jackson.
We have spec'd these tuners as non staggered with Gotoh's long string posts, they are all 20 mm (0.79") from the base of the tuner (where the tuner rests against the back of the headstock) to the string hole, having all long posts is useful if your guitar has a steep headstock angle and you don't want the string's break angle over the nut to become too much (however staggered tuners are normally fine to use on Ibanez, ESP or other guitars that have angled headstocks), the long posts are also useful if your guitar has a headstock that is thicker than 16 mm to ensure the string holes clear the front of the headstock.

Great product. Great service.
I had incorrectly ordered a set of tuners for a project guitar. I communicated this to Neil who helped me select a set that would fit for an awkward headstock, the wrong product was returned and quickly credited and the new tuners shipped and fitted. Great service, with a really wide selection of stock - would highly recommend.
