Tuners on Southern Jumbo

Recommended Posts

Opinions needed for these tuners on my SJ. Would you change them out for vintage style white button instead of these green keystones? They are original to the guitar, and are not broken, so it would be for the look. Binding is white on guitar, so the greenish tint of the keystones don't really match. Should i bother or just leave well enough alone.

Go for it. You can find them with the exact footprint, just a quick swap. I swapped them out on my SJ TV, then toned down the white with brown shoe polish and I love it -

If you decide to replace them I would be interested in buying the ones you currently have.

Personally I believe on Gibson slopes the butterbeans are the only way to go ... but then again I am the resident tuner Natzi. Others have a fetish with pickguard placement, Im a tuner fetisher ...
