You may be in luck. #I ordered a set of gold, Gotoh, f-style tuners from stew mac a couple of months ago. #(part number 0730) #They sent me nickle by mistake and I've not bothered to return them yet. #They are still in the sealed stew mac package. #Unfortunately, they owe me $76.74 in credit as that is what I was charged for the gold ones. #I wouldn't imagine you would want to pay that much for them but if you do, I'll sell them to you instead of returning them to stew mac. #It is also possible that if I return them they will immediately have one available to sell to you and you wouldn't have to pay more than what they normally charge for them. #If you can think of a way to work this out so you get these tuners and I get my $76.74 I'm all ears.

Looks like Johnnymando has a more appealing deal for you. I'm going to go ahead and return mine to stew mac.

Garry...got the tuners Friday....thanks a million. On a side note...I ordered the ivoroid tuner buttons that Elderly advertises that will fit Gotoh tuners. Well they dont...the Gotoh shaft is rounded on two sides and the buttons have a square shaft. Well I got my trusty Dremel tool out and grinded the rounded sides off of all the shafts and the buttons fit great now. I ground just a little at a time to be sure I didnt take too much off. They fit pretty tight then I screwed the screw in. I emailed Elderly of the problem so maybe they can correct the ad spot.
