Testimonials

“Thanks for continuing to strive for excellence in the many services you provide. The website looks great. The more streamlined look is less distracting and I think will make navigating the sight even better!

I have been using LMII as my main wood/parts supplier for almost 5 years now. LMII not only provides excellent products, but has been a link for me to gain access to a tremendous amount of expert knowledge and instruction on acoustic guitar building. Thanks for striving so hard to connect the dots for newer luthiers like myself to be able to benefit from the hard earned experience of the pros. I am now starting on my tenth guitar and have sold 6 of them. With each build, I strive to venture to new personal ground and it comforts me to know that LMII is always there and I can depend upon you guys for whatever I need, every step of the way."

Guitars with slotted heads have become more popular in the last few years, especially in 12 fret/parlor-style models. Many builders have found that there are only very expensive or economy level tuning machines available. We hope to fill this void with our ever expanding line of moderately priced slot-head tuners.

  • The Vintage-style slot-head tuning machines are available in both nickel and gold with enclosed gears and metal buttons. They have a 15:1 gear ratio and are sold in sets of 6 (3L/3R), unless otherwise noted. Screws and bushings are included.
  • The 3-on-a-plate slot-head tuning machines are very nice looking and have a sure, smooth action. The plate is matte gold and is nicely engraved. The buttons are an attractive ivoroid. These tuners have a 14:1 gear ratio. Screws and bushings are included.
  • The Open Gear slot-head tuning machines are individual machines. They have brass open gears and a 15:1 gear ratio. Sold in sets of 6 (3L/3R),  unless otherwise noted. Screws and bushings are included.

All of our slot-head tuners come with 12 stainless steel knurled barrel bushings. These are not strictly necessary, but we find that many of our customers prefer to use them when installing our slot-head tuners. The bushings can be easily installed by drilling a 5/16" hole in the peghead and inserting the bushing with our GBT bushing insertion tool. The inside of the bushings will accommodate a 6mm slot-head tuner shaft.
