GOTOH® Bass Machine Heads

Gotoh makes bass machine heads in two main classes, RES-O-LITE and Regular. Within those classes they make a number of styles, so that you can be sure to find a machine head that fits your bass and your budget.

RES-O-LITE

Bass machine heads have historically been big and solid - great for tuning but bad for weight balance. This is especially true for the 5 and 6-string basses that have become popular in the last few decades. To solve this problem, Gotoh developed their RES-O-LITE series of bass tuners made of strong but lightweight duralumin.

Gotoh GB350-C RES-O-LITE
GB350 RES-O-LITE

The 20:1 GB350 is Gotoh's lightest machine head for bass, weighing in at about 40g (1.4oz) per piece. To reduce weight the shaft, worm, and gear are all made of aluminum and the button is plated plastic. Boxed sets are available in any headstock configuration (eg L4, L3+R3, L4+R1, etc.) and in 4, 5, or 6 pcs per set.

Please note that some products are available in chrome and others in nickel, but not always both. X-Finish options are generally reserved for the high-end models.

Headstock Options

The codes for headstock configurations use L for left (bass) and R for right (treble) side. It's only about the placement on the headstock, not which hand is dominant.

Most bass tuning machines can be purchased in boxed sets of 4, 5, or 6. Additionally, you can order them in any quantity you like indivudually without a proper box. If you don't see prices for the set you'd like to buy, just email us and ask for a quote!

RES-O-LITE

The RES-O-LITE series use a special alloy, duralumin, to reduce weight.
