My old classical guitar had tuning machines with a couple split rollers. Chuck instructed me to take appropriate measurements and I selected the new tuning machines. They fit perfect and the guitar now is easier to tune and stays in tune better. The old screw holes were filled with square toothpicks glued in place and trimmed with sharp chisel and are hidden by new tuning machine plates....thanks Chuck! (Posted on 12/7/2018)
