ROTO-GRIP LOCKING ROTOMATICS (502 SERIES)

The newest addition to the Grover family, these locking machine heads utilize the famous 18:1 Rotomatic design with a thumb screw mechanism which locks the string into place. Insert the string through the post hole, wrap around once, then lock by tightening with the thumb screw. Perfect replacement for the most standard machine heads. Includes all mounting hardware. 3 Treble and 3 Bass, Set of 6.

I installed these in my LP in about 15 minutes. These seem to be the same Grover quality that was installed by Gibson in my non-locking LP. The post diameter is manufactured for a 10mm diameter hole and the alignment screw lines up perfectly and screws are same threading. The post length is a little shorter than the originals that were supplied by Gibson, probably because they don't provide the extra length for string windings. If you don't have a sound stringing technique, your strings might not stay in tune well, especially if you use a tremolo (Bigsby, etc). Locking tuners will help. If you have a good stringing technique, your strings already stay in tune, but locking tuners are easier and faster - just a better way to do things.

I really like these tuners they work great however, one of them was broken right out of the package. Seems like Grover doesn't have the greatest quality control for these.Also i had to wait two months for Grover to ship the item.

Smooth as butter and exceptionally well crafted. These tuners are a guitarists dream come true. Simple to change and lock down a string - seemingly effortless tuning ability. Highly recommend these if you are planning to swap out your keys.
