4 of 5 Converting to Gitane DG500 March 3, 2019
Reviewer: NORMAN PLANKEY from Oxford, CT United States  
I purchased these with the intent of switching out the serviceable but ugly Kluson-type tuners on my 17 year old DG500. Right out of the box, I could tell the shaft was too long and would require some modification; other than that, everything else was pretty much the same. I took the bass side tuners off my guitar and measured -- the original shaft is 0.932" while this new one is 1.075" My lutherie friend advised me to use a belt sander, instead of the Dremel cutoff tool (good advice!) It is a little hard to tell from the photo above but I needed to shave off down to the middle of the outer string-hole (you can't see the inner hole in the photo) I also needed to drill a new pilot hole - no biggie!
All-in-all, a good deal which I would do again -- so 1/2 star off for the extra work but go for it if you have some power tools and skillz!
