"Amazing Feel, Stays In Tune Better, E and G No Longer PITA!"

These feel great when turning the buttons. The high E doesn't take ages to get to pitch, the G and low E are actually tune-able, no more slight finger and thumb pressure to coax it sharp to hope gear backlash brings it back down flat and into tune.The low E and G also stay in tune now, only deviating a few cents when using the bar heavily (with Tusq nut). The locking mechanism takes more turns than Sperzels to unlock. This threw me off. I find it to be a good thing. Sperzel's mechanisms always almost came off when unlocking the posts. Now that I have learned the throw of the screw I can quickly finger spin it out making stringing up faster and less cumbersome.The buttons are secured very well, much like Schallers, meaning they do not move. Grover, Sperzel and other cheap brands have buttons that always need retightening and make tuning annoying.The included adapters are unpolished aluminum, but functional. I chose to drill new holes. The included washers have a cupped design that lets you use them on modern or upside down in larger vintage instrument holes, it centers the tuning shaft.The only disappointments are cosmetic: the dot on each tuning peg, which you can see prominently in the pictures makes them seem like cheap tuners. These appear die cast and the edges are rough and very noticeable with gold plating, again making them appear cheap.Great overall. I want to buy these for all of my guitars now. Definitely recommended and will buy again.
