A little bling for the J-45

Did you just change the buttons, or the tuners also? I'm curious because I don't like the bright white color of the buttons on my SJ. All other white colors on bindings etc are more aged/cream in appearance, and the white buttons don't look right in comparison. I don't want to change the tuners because they work perfectly.

Without bein' sure the link tells me Rev Roy switched the whole thing. Unlike me, who - as you understand - only exchanged the button.

As for the white ones in your SJ, there' always the ol' shoe-polish trick.

Smear brown cream on paper or fabric and wrap it around the tuners. Check after 8-12-16-24 hours till they match the bindings.

Ah, thanks Em7, I'll give that a try.

Just changer the buttons. Quick swap out. Took less than 10 mins.

Always interesting to see a little personal touch. Isn't the nut changed as well - I would think this was a black-nut Standard.

 

Regarding tuners I have one faded gold among my J-45 Std. now matt chrome Grovers.

But it's only the knob, not the whole mechanic. Taken from the 96 Dove btw.

 

Yep...upgraded with bone nut/saddle and bone unslotted pins.
