    Re: Tuners - replace or repair advice

    Eric, those are Grover tuners. You've entered an entirely new world.

    You have a few options as Grover buttons may or may not be available as sets. Chances are someone might have extras of those....

    Re: Tuners - replace or repair advice

    The fake Gotoh (Saga) button stems measure somewhere near .148 round to round and .115 flat to flat. There my be a very slight variation in size.

    Re: Tuners - replace or repair advice

    I've never seen the fake Gotoh's on a Weber but I guess it's possible. I have a few of each button if you can get those dimensions on a digital caliper. I don't want to send you the wrong one. Beyond...

    Re: Tailpiece busted - is this normal?

    The price and quality of these are all over the place but I generally go for the Prucha tailpieces sold by Greg Boyd.

    Re: Gotoh Replacement Tuner Buttons

    You have two ways to go, maybe three.

    You can replace the broken buttons.

    You can replace all the buttons.

    You can replace the tuners with real Gotoh's.

    I'll send you a Personal Message.

    Re: Gotoh Replacement Tuner Buttons

    It appears you have the Saga "Fake Gotoh" tuners. How many buttons are broken?
  9. Re: what glue to use on 70yo mando w/ previous repairs?

    First, could you post a picture of the instrument and the repair? Not seeing either makes this guesswork a little harder. The glue to use depends on what was used to put it together in the first...

  11. Re: Correct screws, to attach bracket to Gibson pickguard?

    This site says they have the screws in nickel.
  12. Re: what size flathead screw for a 1920 F2 pickguard clamp

    Or they could just buy them in nickel here. NFI and no experience with the seller.
  13. Re: Correct screws, to attach bracket to Gibson pickguard?

    Take a look at this thread. Screws and the information regarding nickel plating.

    Well, we know it wasn't you :cool:

    If I remember correctly the restoration was done for the man's family. It meant something to them. I just can't seem to locate the thread.

    Re: Mildewed Instruments

    Ozone on cases is fine and in my mind the best way but there are some problems with using it on the instruments if I recall correctly.
