    Are they good tuners for an SG?

    I have them on an older Faded, early 00's.
    They work fine, I just don't care for the way they look personally

    I just installed them on my SG Classic. They work great and look much better than the stock tuners.

    I think they are the best tuners for an SG: very light weight, new techno, high ratio, smooth knobs, etc ...

    Your Kluson's look great and if they work well, more power to you! I have an SG Classic that has the small button Kluson's (factory) which I can't stand, I just got a set of Grover vintage to swap (looks like a perfect replacement, same holes). Seems SG forum folk aren't keen on swapping tuners from what I've read. Best wishes, thanks for sharing your experience and enjoy!

    I have a project 1997 Samick Artist Series SG that will get the new Revolution.. nickel buttons for me.. the 19:1 ratio is great have heard nothing but good things about them.. I was thinking about the lockers in the same style but the extra weight is a turnoff.. dont really need them but locking tuners are interesting but neck dive is no fun..
