Default Tone Ninja Tuners - US Made

Good looking 19:1 US made tuners ... anyone using them?

This vertical 'Traditional American' open gear 3x3 is used on solid (i.e. non-slotted) headstocks, and is designed to replace contemporary open-gear 3x3 tuners such as Waverley®, Schaller® and Kluson® with vintage tuner headstock holes (8.8 mm)

Contents:
3 x Bass side tuners
3 x Treble side tuners
12 x screws
6 x Press in bushings

All Tone Ninja Machine heads carry a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer.

I think that Tone Ninja is possibly a sub brand of Gotoh. Skyway International Inc. is the US distributor, they are not a manufacturer. They are most likely made in the Jin Ho plant in Korea (who are a good manufacturer).

I think you may be right, I was going on what I found below.

Where are tone Ninja tuners made?
the USA
07/12/2019: High quality, affordable, Tone Ninja locking tuners. Enough said. 07/05/2018: probably the best Tune-on-Matic tailpieces in the world. Made in the USA.
