Great for the price! Exceptionally great!
These are a marked improvement over those rattling cheapos used on entry level Peaveys. If sold as is I can give someone a guitar I can pretty well shred on myself for under $200, and its made in USA. I have also used these on a MIM Strat a friend''s girlfriend dragged behind his truck after a fight. Again I have a playable guitar for around $130. I have never been crazy about Fenders pin indexed tuning machines. These are as good IMHO and have that ''vintage Kluson button'' look from the front. For the price they rate excellent. What will they look like in 40 years? Probably better than the hardware on a certain company''s Super Jumbo. My only problem was making a jig to drill the indexing holes. A scrap of 3/8'' thick plexi glass and installation was easy. The jig took maybe 10-15 minutes to make with a drill press grinder and a bolt. It will be on my bench for years. The tuners have a vintage button look too!
