  1. I always like tinkering around and I needed a decent set of era correct tuners for my 1942 LG-1. I found one set that was missing one gear and shaft and needs the buttons replaced. I started scanning the net for information about these era tuners. Willi has a great post over on UMGF https://umgf.com/chronology-of-kluson-tuners-used-from-late-1936-to-t197854.htm After shopping around I noticed the slotted head tuners from that era were more available and they looked the same except for the string hole in the shaft. I picked up a set that looked in decent shape to try out. Here's some photos. I bought brass bar stock to size and a special tap for the screw holes. Made the shafts to match an original one then did an aging on the brass, replaced the buttons then assembled them. I'll do a few more sets to get better at it. I followed Dan Erlewine's instructions on the buttons but I'm not totally happy with the results. I'll make some kind of jig then redo them. .
  2. Hey guys, I have a 2018 j15 in a walnut burst that I absolutely love. Though I am not a big fan of the mini grovers... I am debating getting cream color tulips with either gold or nickel hardware. I Know I would need a bushing kit and stuff for kluson but will changing to kluson reduce value from this guitar 20 years down the road? Has anyone done this tuner conversion and am I the only one that loves kluson on gibson acoustic? Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Hi, this summer I bought a pack of Original Gibson tuner (custom shop spec, single ring kluson style) to replace the tuners to my old classic 60, when I swapped the keys I didn't had tho swap the bushing, cause they fitted already perfectly (probably are the same hardware already mounted), so I left them unused in the plastic. but yesterday I discovered a thing, the bushing are different, 3 have a single circle above in the center, the other 3 ave that circle different like in the fender ones mounted on my strat. somebody know why? an error in the packaging?
