LP Junior tuners

Recommended Posts

Hello Gibson aficionados,

Can anybody fill me in as to  the make of tuners the Gibson Factory installed on my 2019 Les Paul Tribute Junior?

They have no name on the back of the casing and are attached using pressed in sleeves instead of nut and washer.

The one I played at GC were different than the ones in your picture. The ones I played were Gibson Deluxe, like seen here https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/LPJDT19WBCHd1--gibson-les-paul-junior-tribute-doublecut-2019-worn-brown, which I think are the same as Grover. The ones in your picture look like Gotoh vintage tuners, which if that’s the case, they are awesome.

Thanks man.

Do you thinks that Gibson  would install Gotohs on a new guitar?

Yeah me neither.

Well the mystery remains.

The spec page lists "Vintage Deluxe w/ White Buttons" which would be correct for the era that Juniors were introduced using Kluson style. They did not have the threaded bushing with a washer and nut until later.  A lot of the early Gibsons had the Kluson 3 in a row style. Not to worry, they are still high quality machine heads, Gibson still uses them on several other models which some have no brand, some marked Gibson or Kluson...

Thanks for that information, I appreciate it.

Your tuners actually look higher quality than the originals at least from the pressed in bushing side... enjoy....

I actually really like these tuners.

They so far have done a good job keeping my LPJ  in proper tune.

Thats why I was curious as

to who made them.
