    This is the second tuning peg I've had break off on my old Carvin LB70. I'd like to say they don't make 'em like they used to but that saying might not apply to 21 year old hardware.

    I'll bet a set of real Gotoh GB7 gears will hold up better - and tune more smoothly.

    ^^^ This! Any tuner of that type that isn't a real Gotoh is likely to break (Fender, Warwick, Ibanez, Carvin, etc.). I've never had the real thing break.
