    Default Gotoh Tuner Buttons

    Are available at the Northfield Store. May be purchased individually or as a set of 8. Black, Ivory, and Pearl.. A few months back several folk were on the hunt for a set including myself. Lp

    Do you know if they will work on the Gotoh 309 style tuners?

    Don't know Charles. I took a chance and ordered a full set of black. If they do not fit I'll send them back to NF. Lp

    Thanks Lane, That is my intention also, a full set of black buttons. My concern is that on the F40 tuners the screw head sits on top of the button and on my 309 tuners the screw head is recessed. Maybe I'll give the folks at Northfield a call before ordering.

    Sorry for the typo, 309 tuners are a Grover product. The Gotoh buttons will not be compatible.

    The only removable Gotoh mandolin tuners that these buttons won't fit are the old old models with square shafts. Those need the same buttons as Waverly uses.

    This is a great resource as people ask about this often. Now, if they have the button screws they can make a killing.

    By the way, the pearl buttons are pearloid not MOP.

    New and old style Gotoh tuners compared (from Paul Hostetter's site). I have one set of old style Gotoh's hanging around.
