Double the Deluxe - Double the Style!

We're really pleased to announce our brand new line of Vintage styled machine heads - starting off with the exceptional Double Deluxe series!

Built to that timeless formula, with a 14:1 gearing, nut and washer mounting and moulded tulip heads , these are ideal replacements for most Kluson® or Gibson® Machine head with the same fitting system, or as a “vintage modification” to many Epiphone®

Stylistically, we’ve gone for a very simply design all round, a no bells and whistles approach – just like you’d expect from a machine head built in this timeless style.

The engraving on the rear of the tuner is in the iconic striping, and two wider stripes off centre sporting “DELUXE” etched in a plain font – no “Axesrus® ” branding anywhere to be seen, so they’re absolutely ideal to be used by Luthiers as well as anyone just looking to fix up their old Les Paul® or SG®! Nothing turns us off faster than garish, in your face branding on parts and whilst we live and breathe Axesrus here in the offices – we don’t expect you to be walking billboards for the brand, so we like to keep things neutral on the style front and let quality and reliability of the parts do the advertising for themselves.

The tulip heads, again, are clean and crisp – single build – with only the one “ring” around the case – cast from green nitrate plastic. These are going to age up exactly how you expect nitrate to, over the coming decades of use they’ll significantly darken up, they’ll check and haze – in 30 years’ time, they’ll look 30 years old! You just don’t get that natural patina with the cheaper versions on the market which use a PVC for the heads.

Kluson® is a registered trademark all over Europe of Dieter Gölsdorf & Gibson®, SG®, Les Paul® & Epiphone® are a tradmark of Gibson® Guitar Corp, and Axesrus® make no claims to any claim to these marks.

Tech Talk
The Double Deluxe line represent that classic machine head, and stick pretty closely to the designs you'll have seen on most Gibson® Guitars today.

No fancy locking mechanisms or high ratio gearing here either, when we say these things are vintage, we mean it!

5 of 5 Replacing epiphone lp machine heads December 10, 2015
Reviewer: Andrew Stillings from Doncaster, South Yorkshire England  
Just fitted new Double Deluxe-Historic machine heads on a 1990 epi les paul. Just had to re drill 4 of the retaining screw holes and run a drill through the main holes; nothing too demanding. They are super smooth with no play, accurate tuning. Very impressed and they look cool in chrome.
