Casino tuners

Recommended Posts

Hey all, just a quick question about Casino tuners. I have an IBJL Sunburst Casino and for all the talk folks do about mods and upgrades, there's nothing about this guitar I'd change EXCEPT maybe the tuners. I just seem to have to tweak the tuning a little more than I'd like, compared to my strat, for instance, which has real Kluson's.

SO, my question is: Are the Kluson's from the Kluson product page here: http://www.kluson.com/PRODUCTS.htm

at the top left, product number SD9005MN | NICKEL | a straight drop in replacement? Like no drilling or whatever?

I could see dropping the $60.00 for these.

Thanks.

Are you sure it's the tuners and not the nut? Most modern tuners are pretty decent at holding tune, whereas from the factory many nuts need a little work to prevent binding of the strings.

I just had a setup done by a well know/respected luthier where I live and a nut-file was one of the things he did. The condition existed before and after the adjustment...

Yes, they should be fine, but one suggestion I would make, is to leave the existing bushes in place, because they are tight, and you may chip the front face of the h/stock, trying to get them out, like I did on my IB 64 Texan! You may find Gotoh or Wilkinson, may do the same tuners cheaper, I always use Gotoh myself.

Good point, I wouldn't remove the existing bushings if the new ones fit.

Thanks.
