Planet Waves Auto-Trim Tuners

Non-sponsored promotion, though if they sent me a few sets of these Planet Waves Auto trim tuners, I wouldn’t put up a fight…

I have installed these on a few acoustic guitars, and it slowly came to pass that these Auto Trim Tuners are one of my favorite guitar inventions. They were the first guitar product I’d ever encountered that shocked me due to quality and convenience.

1. The string locks with the knurled wheel on the bottom.

2. The first half rotation of the post cuts the excess string with a hardened steel tuning post leaving no nub or sharp string parts.

3. It takes maybe an extra quarter turn of the post to get the guitar in tune, so no excess winds to tighten.

After dealing with a set of Grover tuners this week with strings slipping out of them, I realized how much I valued these Planet Waves when I installed them on other guitars, so I bought a set. Now I just have to pick a guitar lucky enough to get them.

I am excited about tuners. Must be labor day.
