Will Sperzel tuners fit on a xxxxxx guitar?
Because there are literally thousands of necks, headstocks, tuners and variants, we can't hope to accurately answer this question every time. We recommend you read the specification below, and measure your guitar before ordering a set of Sperzel's.
Sperzel's will work on most guitars. Here's what you need to know:
Your guitar needs to have 10 mm (13/32") headstock holes. That's most guitars, but always measure before ordering. The exceptions tend to be vintage or vintage reissue Fenders.
For 3x3, all 7 string,all 8 string, 4x2 and non-staggered 6 inline sets, your headstock should not be any thicker than 0.650" (16.5 mm approx)
For 6 inline staggered sets, your headstock should not be any thicker than 0.590" (15 mm approx)
Usually, and on most guitars, headstocks are within these ranges.
Sperzel's don't use a screw to stop the tuner from rotating, they use a pin. You will always have to drill a hole for this pin for each tuner, unless your guitar had Sperzel tuners fitted previously. A template is provided with every set, and you use a 7/64" or 2.7mm drill bit to drill the small hole for the pin.
