I' m very happy,
I love those tuners. I've got 'em on a lot of my guitars... I think you'll like 'em too.
Awesome you found ones with the "K" logo stamped on the back; more recent ones have a laser engraved "Kluson" on the back. Same tuners, I just like the simpler "K" look, myself.
I got them on a Tele '72 RI and love them. Very precise and well made.
What's the diameter? 10mm or are they "vintage"?
You can get them in both: http://www.kluson.com/revolution.html
Nice tuners. Do they have a double ring version?
If you scroll down this parts list it appears double ring buttons are available but I don't know if a pre-made set using them is available. :http://www.kluson.com/tuning-machine-parts.html#vintage_keystone
They have a complete range : locking and standard, Gold, nickel and chrome, vintage and 10mm post....
The KLUSON Revolution are very light and smooth. With 1:19 ration the precision is perfect.
Thanks for the info. I have an incoming Harley Benton and I may need to do some upgrading.
I’ve been looking at these too. After using the Grover’s on my Les Paul,going back to the stock Kluson’s On my SG seem really finicky.
I wouldn’t get locking as they’re probably a bit heavier. You know, neck dive and all that...
Yes, the Kluson Revolution are modern tuners with a vintage look and they work nicely.
When the SG is completely finished and upgraded (GraphTech nut, ABR-1 bridge conversion, M69 pickup rings) I' ll post pictures.
Lol, you could buy a nice Gibson LP Studio for what it costs to do rigt. Here's what I "upgraded" on a SC450 Les Paul clone:
Complete wiring harness
Kluson deluxe tuners
Gotoh stopbar and bridge
At the end of the day you're left with a guitar that plays and sounds good, but not Gibson good.
P.S. If Thomann really inspected the one I modded, the crew was out drinking heavily the night before.
Are these Kluson Revolutions significantly lighter than Grover Rotomatics?
I don' t have rotomatics on my guitars but I compared those 3 machine heads :
SCHALLER De Luxe, KLUSON De Luxe, KLUSON Revolution. The result? KLUSON Revolution is the lightest tuner .
Finishes available for the Revolution are black, gold, nickel and chrome.
Détails make the difference, Creamtone pickguard, Knobs historic correct, Pointers, Heavy knurled Switchcraft nut, Historic switch tip
I just realized that my recently acquired SG Standard has pointers.
