Gotoh and Grover. I would love to use Waverly tuners, but right now I can't justify the expense. Once my skills improve enough that my guitars are good enough to use them, I will bite the bullet and spend the cash on a set, but for now I like the prices of Gotoh and Grovers.

thanks David.
I changed out a set on my 1968 bowtie from the original Grovers to Gotoh.
There a little better than the grovers. Ill see after they have had as many miles on them as the grovers.
Thanks Dave

I've been using Grover Stay-Tites and I like them. I have a set of Waverlies on a Martin slot-head and I love them. I'm just really not at the point in my building career to justify their price.

I like Gotohs, Schaller, Grover, and even some Ping --- great value and I think they are produced along with the Gotohs (here say) Interesting that some folks get all upset with their tuners when the real problem is a careless job of re-stringing. Denny Zager uses a system that works well. The key is to keep the windings very neat, not on top of one another and only a few are needed. It surprising how the apparent slippage is eliminated.
