I recently ordered a couple of Bearclaw Sitka guitar tops and I wanted to let you know that not only did they arrive safe and sound but they are beautiful. Amazing figure! Having been less than satisfied with some wood suppliers over the years it's comforting to know that LMII has consistently come across in both quality and integrity. I never have to worry and that's a wonderful thing!

Thanks again,
Marc Beneteau

Gotoh® Open Gear Tuners

Open gear tuners are very popular now as they are light weight and offer a “vintage vibe” to the guitar. Gotoh makes their line of open gear tuners with a special “self centering” post collar which creates super smooth and even action -the finest on the market! The star of the Gotoh line of open-gear tuners is the GNS1B tuner designed by LMI! The brass gear wheel and nickel finish offers the vintage look that so many builders are looking for.

These tuners have a 15:1 gear ratio and require an 11/32" post hole. Sold in sets of 6 (3L/3R)  unless otherwise noted. Screws and bushings are included.
