Gibson Machine head


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I have just acquired a Gibson J-45 Custom, and I have just completed a full set-up to my satisfaction, however

I have a problem with the 2 top machine heads ( D & G ) with no strings on them they all wind very smooth, but

as soon as I fit the strings and bring them to pitch, the D & G keys get very tight, they are very difficult to

turn ? but the others are fine, they move very smooth like they should.

I have tried oiling the offending keys but it made no difference ? [sad]


Any idea's guys ??
