Fender Locking Strat & Tele Tuning Machines
Chrome
Set of 6

Intended as drop-in replacements for most American and Mexican-made Stratocasters and Telecasters these will be an instant upgrade to the tuning stability and reliability of your guitar.  The machine heads are locked using a thumb wheel on the back of the headstock which traps the string in the post.  This method negates the need for any special or fiddly winding techniques and allows for fewer winds around the posts eliminating any chance of slipping - it also makes restringing amazingly quick!

Each tuner has a die-cast shell with removable caps and bushings and is mounted using Fender's dual locating pins so there are no screws and no visible mounting holes.  For precise tuning adjustment, the ratio used is 18:1 which allows for a greater deal of precision when tuning.

 

Staggered Post Heights
These Fender locking machine heads have staggered post heights with taller posts for the wound strings (closest to the fretboard) and low posts for the plain strings (farthest from the fretboard).  The graduation in heights allows for increased break-angle across the nut which greatly improves tuning stability and intonation.


Features

  • Set of six tuning machines (3 long posts and 3 short posts)
  • Chrome finish
  • Gear ratio 18:1
  • Dual pin mounting
  • Used on American Deluxe and American Elite Series guitars
  • Mounting hardware included (bushings & washers)

In the 1940’s in California, inventor Leo Fender discovered that he could dramatically improve on the quality of amplified hollow-body guitars with simple introduction of a solid-body electric guitar.  A few years later, in 1951 the first commercially mass-produced electric, solid-body guitar was introduced to the world market: the Telecaster!  Later that year, the first fretted ‘Precision’ Bass joined the Tele in becoming the foundation of popular music and modern rock.  The Stratocaster joined the ranks in 1954 with its pioneering tremolo system and went on to revolutionize popular music.

Fender opened its flagship factory in 1985 in Corona, California followed quickly by another development in Ensenada, Mexico in 1987 along with the introduction of the Fender Custom Shop in the Corona facility.  Fender has now become one of the biggest brands in manufacturing, distributing and marketing of musical instruments in the world and are the most famous electric guitar brand.
