    I'm looking to replace these pegs, but cannot find a match.

    There are six screw holes.
    The dimension: 1'' x 1 3/4''

    Any ideas?
    Thank you.

  2. Hi.

    If You're looking for exact replacements, IME without going NOS you're SOL.
    AFAIK no-one makes reproductions for that kind of tuners for bass, even though IIRC there used to be Schallers that looked a bit like that for guitar though.

    Unless someone has stripped the threads in the back plates, only the middle ones (2 per tuner) are mounting screws, the ones on the corners fasten the cup onto the back plate.
    Edit:On another thought, I've come across that kind of tuners where the corner ones (4) are mounting screws and the middle ones are for the cup.
