YAMAHA TRANSACOUSTIC REPLACEMENT TUNER??

Based on their L-series, the transacoustic guitar is a completely revolutionary new concept, creating an instrument that produces the same incredible sound found in a great sounding room.

Welcome to the forum and the string section. ((i))

I don't think there's a one answer solution.

If your guitar is still under warranty, get it inspected and fixed by Yamaha.
If you still can't keep in tune and just want to get rid of the original tuners,
take you guitar to a well stocked music store to find a set that fits the guitar and your taste.
Buying a set of tuners online, may not live up to your expectations, you might as well get it right first time.

Please report back and let us know.

Best Regards

Hi and welcome to yamahamusicians.com :)

I am assuming that as we are talking about a Transacoustic you have not had it very long? Is there actually something wrong with the stock tuners or you just want to "upgrade" to something else?

If there is a fault and I have heard of some issues with the Transacoustic then I would get it replaced.

On the other hand if your just looking to tweak the spec then certainly, why not :)

I "believe" Wilkinson do a set, part number WJ303GD that are a direct replacement. Also Grover do their Rotomatics 102 in various colours..not cheap though! I'm sure there are others too. Best thing is to take some measurements and then check with whatever brand you are interested in. They should be able to confirm if their tuners will fit.

I didn't use to like gold machine heads but they have kind of grown on me lately. Anyway the Grovers come in several finishes so you will be fine there.

Curious though why your looking to replace the stock ones. Have you already tried them and didn't like them or just a thing that you want to fit your own choice of tuners?

Ahh ok, I see where your coming from now. Well do keep us posted on whether you do decide to change them out or not and what you think of the stock ones and the guitar in general. Always interested to hear about these things :)
