Identify Gibson Tuners

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a set of old Gibson branded tuners that I am trying to identify as to approximate years of use and which model guitars might have used them. These are all metal keystone types that are in really good working condition. They bear the "Gibson" logo and have a small flower symbol. They look like Kluson on the exterior but nothing like them internally. Any help to identify them would be much appreciated.

1970's

 

Yes, these are not pre-war by any means. The flower insignia was an early 70's "flower power" thing. Not sure when Gibson started using it, but it is on the 74/75 catalog I still have.

 

The styling certainly looks Klusonesque, but the guts (and bushings) are sure different.
