Post What tuners are used on G&L guitars (USA models)?
From John Toner, G&L Customer Service:

Quote:
Regarding the tuners, we use Schallers and Sperzel, locking and unlocking versions of both.
Although both have one anchor pin, the Sperzel is set further from the center than the Schaller, thus they are drilled differently. You would not be able to swap between the two.
Schaller has the “G&L” logo. Sperzel has their logo stamped in script.
Neither of the locking versions have the “G&L” logo.

Thanks Craig. As a former G&L dealer (from the 80's and 90's; LaCroix & Sons Guitars, Marshall, MN) and a guitar tech I really appreciate the updated info on the tuners, and this is very helpful to me when I help my clients. :thumbup:

In a recent post: Gotoh Tuners on New G&Ls?
I checked with my contacts at G&L and found this out from Steve Grom (Director of Manufacturing):

Quote:
It turns out we did run a few instruments (no more than 10) a few months ago
with some Gotoh Tuners. Our shipments from both Schaller and Sperzel were
delayed and we did have inventory of some Gotoh keys. So yes, there are a
small number of recently made US G&L Guitars out there with Gotoh keys.

Thanks

Steve

The subject of whether or not USA tuners will work without modification on the Tribute guitars comes up from time to time.
The answer is no they will not drop right in. You will need to modify the existing holes for the USA tuners (Sperzel or Schallers)
to be installed in the Tribute model guitars.

Here are the current standard and locking G&L tuners (source information from the G&L On-Line Store):

G&L 6 IN LINE CHROME TUNERS. RIGHT HAND ONLY

Quote:
These are current equipment on all USA G&L guitars. They will replace older G&L tuners that use a single pin on the backside.
These will NOT replace Sperzel brand tuners. Sold in sets only, chrome, right handed.

These are NOT drop-in replacements for Tribute guitar models however they can be made to work if a new locator pin is drilled.

G&L 6 IN LINE LOCKING CHROME TUNERS. RIGHT HAND ONLY

Quote:
These are current equipment on G&L USA guitars when locking tuners are optioned. They will replace older locking or non-locking G&L tuners that use a single pin on the backside.
A nice and simple upgrade to your guitar especially models with a Dual Fulcrum Trem. These will NOT replace Sperzel brand locking tuners. Sold in sets only, chrome, right handed.

These are NOT drop-in replacements for Tribute guitar models however they can be made to work if a new locator pin is drilled.
