Gotoh SG381-MGT Machine Heads 6-in-line

The SG381 range of tuners features Gotoh’s own “Magnum” Locking technology, utilising a knurled thumbwheel at the back of the tuner to clamp the string securely in place. This mechanism also makes for lighting-fast string changes. Just feed the string through the peg hole, and tighten the thumbwheel to keep your strings in position and in tune for longer!

Solid brass gears with a 1:18 ratio give a good balance between tuning speed and precision.

Rock-Solid string post technology eliminates unwanted rattle from gears, posts and body assembly. The incorporation of special elastic components maximises the transmission of string vibrations, greatly improving tuning stability. Posts stay strong even during bends and heavy tremolo use.

Each machine head is permanently sealed and lubricated using Gotoh’s 'Lubri-Coat' technology. This non-degradable lubricant ensures better contact between the worm and gear wheel, reducing backlash, and greatly enhancing the accuracy and durability of each tuner.

The 60in-line set has the screw attachment holes at 90 degrees to the tuner post, making them a great direct replacement for many Stratocaster/Telecaster guitar models.

Perfect balance of price vs performance

These were perfect for a Telecaster build project. Modern look but vert effective

A must for any Stratocaster owner

After building a few Stratocaster type guitars, the standard Strat tremolo system/nut setup requires locking tuners, to maintain tuning stability. I have tried various methods to try and optimise the tuning, and for me Gotoh tuners are my Go To tuning machines. I can’t fault them. They look and feel great. One criticism, the weight of these tuners is noticeable. But other than that, a great product for any Stratocaster users.
