    I've just finished rebuilding an 87 MIJ Jazz Special (aka "original" Duff McKagan model) from the ground up. I mean, literally. It was just a body and a sad, poorly de-fretted neck. It's now a beautiful, fully functioning black thumper, except....

    I need one tuner!

    I think it's a Schaller BMFL. Fender USA will not sell me one for a modern Duff McKagan signature bass, so I've got to find an original. I bought a set for an 87 Aerodyne but the post diameter and the base plate are both too small.

    Anyone out there know where I can lay my hands on one original tuner?
