"Just received my latest classical guitar kit. I had a couple of requests for wood selection, and you did a great job in selecting on both counts,
In addition, all the wood was great quality - this was an expensive kit, but your product made it a very good value to me.

Thanks for the great work!"


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.
