These are in fact Jin-Ho made tuners, very good quality, as a substantial share of the industry uses them under different brand names.
On a Vintage VS6 (mind you, the one with diagonal fixing, not Kluson styled) they dropped right in without a single issue.
The locking system is solid and accounts for much easier string changes, much improved tuning stability if used correctly, plus the advertised ratio seems quite accurate.
No reason to buy more expensive ones for any practical purpose.
I did not expect the high quality feel for this price. The castings are clean with no sprue and dimensions are exactly as per spec. There is absolutely no play or slap-back in the gearing. It feels like solid brass gearing should. I liked these so much I removed genuine Fender tuners from one of my Telecasters and replaced them with these. Tuning stability is now better and all with the convenience and lack of fuss you get with locking tuners. I have already ordered more for a Strat.
I was sceptical at first about buying these for my PRS SE Custom 24 due to the price being so low! I emailed Kevin at Northwest Guitars who reassured me that they were of good quality and made at the same factory as most other tuners so I decided to give them a go. I'm so glad I did! They are a direct replacement fitwise and I noticed a big improvement in the tuning stability straightaway, especially when using the tremolo arm. Highly recommended!
