Ibanez tuner replacement
I got my hands on a 1996 Ibanez SR500, made in Korea. It's a P/J one.
The previous owner replaced one of the tuners but used a "top" side rather than a "bottom".
I need to find a fitting replacement, I don't like the way the string is sitting. Help? :)
Will a Gotoh GB7 (14mm / 9/16") fit?
HIT SHOT ULTRA LITES ARE THE WAY TO GO PERFECT REPLACEMENT.
Contact the Ibanez staff through the official forums and they'll provide the info needed to find an exact match for your bass. And they can tell you if it's on stock, or not.
I didn't realize they might actually have a useful support. Thanks, I'll do that.
Gotoh GB7 is the exact replacement
You'll just find the owner's screwhole open while you'll operate on the correct one
The replacement "could" (eventually not) lay a bit more angled
than others, go on anyway, it's not a fault and no functional problem incurred it's just that they (replacement makers) tend to slightly rotate inclination of machineheads thru time, but as long as the caliber stays the same, the new machinehead will work
I know I'm late
Their support is not useful... they forward me to the Israeli so support email but they can't help...
I only need to figure if it's a 14mm or other size. What exactly should I measure?
I found the exact pic of the right hand side black GB7
Like I've previously said, your local dealer sucks. If they're official Ibanez dealers, not only they can solve such issues, but they are obliged solve them because the brand works only through them.
On the other hand, if you decide to use aftermarket parts, buy a full set of tuning keys.
