I posted this question in another thread as well. I just purchased a 1970 Gibson EB-0 bass husk with the short lived (2 year) slotted headstock. The tuners haven't been made in 30 years, schaller m4 classic with the long post and hole instead of a slot.
When a used set does pop up it seems they want a fortune. I'll be installing all new hardware and electronics so I don't necessarily need vintage. It looks like I can install regular tuners without the long post reaching the bushing, it just may be a pain to string up. Has anyone tried this? I can't seem to find any images of these basses with updated hardware. Any suggestions for sources for these tuners?
