    Re: Drop In Tuners For 1933 Gibson A

    If you're skilled at measuring and have a good rule, it's easier to determine which spacing you have if you measure from the first post to the last, instead of from the first post to the second. ...

    Re: Drop In Tuners For 1933 Gibson A

    To clarify--

    The Stew-mac Golden Age tuners, part numbers #2511 and #2512, have the correct post spacing for Gibson A models made after the mid 1920's. These tuners can be recognized by the...

    Re: Drop In Tuners For 1933 Gibson A

    Drop In Tuners For 1933 Gibson A

    Had a gig the other night, and my stiff d tuner would barely get to pitch. I'm afraid of breaking the plastic.
