need kalamazoo gib/epi acoustic experts - tuner question

Post by MechaBulletBill » Tue Jun 16, 2020 6:18 am

does anyone know what tuners i could get that would be drop-in replacements for these? it's a ~66 epi caballero (pretty much the same as a gibson lg0)

maybe the kluson 3-on-a-plate tuners that come on juniors/melody makers? i can't imagine the tuner holes themselves would be in different places but i need the mount screw holes to line up, or else i may as well farm the whole job out to someone more skilled.

Stew-mac offers a pretty wide variety of 3 on a plate tuners:

I would not be able to tell you what would fit your Epiphone, but probably someone at Stew-mac can, or maybe there is a PDF you could print up from them to find the appropriate size.
Back in those days, everyone knew that if you were talking about Destiny's Child, you were talking about Beyonce, LaTavia, LeToya, and Larry.
