Is there some magic way to tell what type of tuners are on a mandolin by looking at them?? My 1998 Flatiron F-5 Special has pearly looking buttons and the metal is all gold plated. Very fancy engraving on the metal strips where the gears are(on the back of the headstock).
Are they Waverly, Gotoh, Grover, Bargain Basement???
These are on the Custom (or upgraded) F-5 I've talked about here before. ("THE FLATIRON" engraved Gold Tailpiece and "THE FLATIRON" MOP script inlay on the headstock.)
Any idea what they are. What was Gibson putting on their High End Flatirons / Upgraded F-5Gs in 1998
