    Any suggestions for an inexpensive set of tuners for an old Takamine G series ABG? Or even a single replacement as I only need one at the moment. I'm talkin' one of the $15.00-$25.00/sets from amazon or ebay. I don't think this particular bass warrants the more costly offerings from Gotoh/Hipshot etc.
    Thanks.

    I've got a set of Ping 3/8's (Gotoh GB7 footprint) which I pulled off a stock Dingwall Combustion 5. Let you have 'em real cheap!

    Oh yeah, Carvin, forgot about them. Will give both a look.
    Thanks.


    Uh, yeah. Got'em on amazon for as little as ~$10.00.

    Awwww. I quite love my Takamine G series ABG. Better sounding than any Dean, Fender or Ibanez ABG I've ever played. Not quite as full and massive as that Martin I played once at a shop though. Mmmm. ;)

    Ditto.

    I'll check the classifieds for them, but I think I'm looking for a seriously budget purchase.

    I'll send you what you need for the cost of shipping. Let me know how many and the desired orientation (treble vs bass side).

    I got some Wilkinson tuners from China on EBay. Think I paid like 25 for the whole set. Nice big open ones, work great.
