Hipshot Vintage 8.5 mm Nickel 3x3 Enclosed Griplock Tuner Kit with UMP kit
Manufacturers Part Number: 6K2VL0N
For Vintage-style 3x3 headstocks with 8.5 mm peghead holes.
Let's face it, guitar tuning machine technology has come a long way since the 'golden age' of guitars. Our Vintage Style Grip-Lock™ Tuning Machines allow you to take advantage in the latest locking tuner technology without having to drill your headstock holes out to 10mm.
Features include:
  • Grip-Lock pin and thumb wheel system clamps onto your string for extra security.
  • 15:1 gear ratio for finer tuning
  • 8.5mm string post shank for vintage style guitars
  • Nickel, Chrome, Black or Gold finishes
  • Different button options
  • Compatible with UMP for no modification installation on your guitar

The UMP™ is a patent pending adapter plate that fits between your Hipshot tuners and the headstock of your guitar. Tabs on the face of the plate prevent the tuners from slipping against the headstock. At the same time, reach nuts inserted through the existing headstock holes into the tuners keep the whole assembly securely in place. This means that the tuners, interlocking as one unit, use the headstock holes themselves for stability rather than individually drilled locator pin or mounting screw holes. Upgrading to the most precise tuners in the market is really as simple as orienting the plates on the headstock, inserting the tuners through the plates into the headstock and tightening the reach nuts and washers from the front.

Hipshot's Griplock Guitar Tuning Machines grip your strings for positive, accurate tuning. The new sleek enclosed design with mini-Schaller buttons and ultra smooth 16:1 gear ratio give you a great combination of tuning stability, accuracy and good looks
. The locking feature eliminates the need for multiple string wraps, and trem users no longer need a locking nut that deadens string sustain and all those annoying Allen screws and wrenches (added weight). Tired of winding strings? This is the answer. The Hipshot Griplock is proven to hold strings tightly, allowing the guitar to stay in tune to improve playing enjoyment. The Griplock is a mechanical type locking system that can be used on any guitar, including non-trem or acoustic.
