Fits many Fender American Vintage (US), Classic Series and Road Worn Series basses manufactured from 1998-Present. Will retrofit to most vintage basses. Some modification may be required.

These are similar to the GOTOH 3096NS vintage style tuning machine but with a die-cast base and a flat back plate(no lugs).  The bass tuning machines will sit flat against the headstock surface without modification that is needed with vintage tuning machines.  

Allen key included for adjusting the tuning key torque adjustment.

    Great tuning machines

    Posted by Luis Martinez on Apr 23, 2021

    Bought these to get the "retro" look with the long tuning post and the clover-leaf design, really satisfied with the looks. Tuning stability is great, and the tuning ratio allows you for a good "fine tune". These are in the heavy side of tuning machines compared with my other basses clover-leaf machines, MIM stock tuning machines in my Fender Jazz Bass and a set of Schaller tuning machines in a DIY project bass. If you are looking for retro look with a good tuning stability these are a good option. Throw them in a Jazz Bass Neck and a P-Bass body with an EMG-MM pickup and a Schaller 3D bridge. Cheers

    These are beautiful high quality Machines. I love the adjustability. Flat Backs are the way to go if you don’t want the lugs on back. Shipping was fast. Recently I have made Philadelphia Luthier my go to for parts and tools. Very Satisfied with the product and the service.

    Vintage Bass Guitar Tuning Machines for Fender w/ flat back

    Posted by Fred on Jul 29, 2019

    These are nice tuners, smooth and well made. I happen to like reverse tuners so they were prefect for my project. Being flat backed I didn't have stop and re leave the back of the headstock for each tuner to fit flush, which is what I usually have to do if you want old school reverse tuners. so these saved some time. I will use these again, worth the little extra money to me. I wish the stems were a little long though for more of an old school look.
