New Epiphone branded tuners on Masterbilts?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I've recently purchased a brand new DR400 MCE, and I noticed that the tuning machines are no longer Grover branded, but are now Epiphone branded. Are these tuners Grovers that are simply re-branded, or did Epiphone have someone else make these?

 

Thanks

Not sure, but interesting. Checking the back of the headstocks on the 500 at Sweetwaters site shows the same Epiphone branded tuners. Just stock photos of the AJ-45 with Grover’s.

Right, I have owned the AJ45-ME twice before and they were both made in Indonesia with Grover branded tuners.. The one I saw at Guitar Center the other day was a 2017 model; made in China with Epiphone branded tuners.
