Very well made tuners used on the Saga Gitane Jorgenson models. Great quality tuner for a very low price!
saga Gitane deluxe tuners
Pros: easy installation, beauty, function
Like the guy said, these fit my Alitmira M01D like they were made for it, with only the need to make small pilot holes for the interior two screws. Thanks for that note; it let me know to get them and trust them. It took maybe 20 minutes to swap them. The look, and especially the feel of the tuners is exquisite, giving me a sensual reward every tuning. Really beautiful ivoroid, and tooling on brazz plates. If these tuners and the much more expensive tuners were both the same price, I'd still get this set. i love 'em.

Saga Gitane Deluxe Tuners
GREAT UPGRADE These worked perfect on my Altamira M01D. Only needed to pilot the two center screws on each side. SO MUCH BETTER pick on pickitjohn

Installed these nice looking units to replace the cheesy tuners on my used Gitane D-500. Had to grind a couple of millimeters off the upper pegs (with a Dremel) so they would fit together in the headstock, and had to drill a couple of new pilot holes for the inside two screws on each side. The necked portions of the posts are not quite in the same position as the originals, but it is still possible to string the guitar without interference from the headstock. The tuners operate smoothly and should give good service.

Great tuners. They dropped right in with a minimum of fuss. They give my old Gitane D500 so much more class than the stock tuners. They are also a major improvement to what was there. They make tuning easier with a larger keys.

Saga Gitane tuners
These tuners are a perfect fit as replacements for my Gitane D500. The original tuners were not very high quality (which is the reason for their replacement - one of the gears became completely stripped). These new tuners are very well made, and are beautiful, too. I'm very happy with them.

Good tuners that I used to replace my old ones on my DG-255. I did need to drill a very small hole because they didnt line up 100% properly but it fits well and tunes excellently now.

A nice touch over the stock tuners for the dg-255. Look much nicer and easier to turn.
