I Have a Martin 00016SGT with slotted headstock. The tuners (machine heads) as supplied are Schallers in chrome with acrylic knobs. They're OK, but I love the quality of the Grovers I bought for my other guitar. The Grover website doesn't list any tuners for slotted headstocks however, so I would welcome suggestions.

Last year I replaced the original tuners on my vintage Martin 0-28 with Waverly tuners and I have been very pleased. This guitar also has the slotted headstock. I ordered the Waverlies from Stewart-Macdonald which provides a very good guide to measuring and determining the exact replacements you would need. Later on, I put Waverlies on my Martin 0-15 (standard headstock). Good luck. -btmp

Yup, as BTMP pointed out, the Waverly tuners seem to have the best quality these days. You'll love them and your wallet will be quite a bit lighter so your back won't hurt nearly so much when you carry around the remnants of your money.

I have no idea what they cost or whether they are all as good, but one of my guitars has little Gotohs on and they consistently impress me.

Waverly at Stew-Mac Waverly is the class of the field, widely used by many of the finest. Modern technology with a vintage look.....it doesn't get better.

I'm surprised Grover doesn't have slotted-style tuners. Have you tried Elderly Instruments for guitar tuners? They have more models of banjo tuner than Stew-Mac, so I'd guess they would have the same for guitar tuners.

I just checked Elderly, and they seem to have only one kind of Grover set -- the Sta-tites -- for slotted headstocks. They have several versions of individual Sta-tites for slotted headstocks, plus one set of three-on-a-plate Grovers for same.

That said, the other brands mentioned here are very good, in particular the Waverly tuners, but Gotoh are also just fine!

Spaw slipped up and said something that made sense.

There's Waverly and there's everything else.

Waverlys are lovely and they've served me well but on the advice of a luthier I forked out for some Rodgers tuners and they were even better. But are you prepared to re-mortgage your property?

Collings uses Waverly's as standard issue on their slotheads. 'Nuff said.
