Every skilled guitarist needs to perfectly master the tuning of his guitar and every good luthier must equip his instruments with the best machine heads. After all, both are looking for a clear and defined sound that can only be achieved with a quality machine head.

But what is a quality machine head? For us, quality depends on the technology used, the materials and the finishes. That's why this time we bring you a wide range of high-end Gotoh machine heads and bridges, with new finishes, new posts and new exclusive buttons, made of real mother of pearl and very exotic woods.

But what's the best thing about these new Gotoh machine heads? Undoubtedly, their solid lubrication and Rock Solid technologies.


The application of a solid lubricant coating to the screw reduces the friction with  the gear wheel and increases the durability of the machine head.


The solid lubricant covers both the screw and the gearwheel, resulting in a smoother gearing.


This technology gives stability to the posts of your machine head. The special spring under the string post prevents vibration and prevents string balance.

Stability, durability and excellent tuning are the three factors to consider when choosing a quality machine heads. Let's review together the high ranges of Gotoh machine heads for classical, acoustic, electric guitars, basses and ukuleles, as well as bridges for electric basses.
