    Re: Drop In Tuners For 1933 Gibson A

    Another vote for the Golden Age tuners. Put them on after getting my A Jr. and haven't complained since. Plus, I think black tuner buttons look cool on a Junior.

    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: A model case for old Gibson

    I think those are the ones I bought when they went on sale. Very useful for the ceaseless mandolins to protect them in my closet piles :)

    Re: Drop In Tuners For 1933 Gibson A

    The problem with measuring them is likely to be being precise enough - we’re talking millimetres here. The best way to find which you have is to look at the worm gears. The teens to twenties tuners...

    What I really miss are the old Musicians Friend cases they sold for $25.00 and fit a short neck mandolin perfectly. I still have one.

    Also, check the slot in the nut for the strings that aren't turning to make sure it's not binding there.

    I bought it from George Gruhn, who actually owned this mandolin twice. He also had some stories about Scotty Stoneman owning and playing it. I'm going to tear into it and do some cleaning and lubing...

    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

    If it is indeed a 1933 then you need the modern spaced tuners. Stewmac makes two different Golden Age tuner sets. One will fit the earlier worm under models from the teens and early 20's and the...

    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.
