looking for closed-gear Gibson bass tuners...

  1. So, on my '69 Gibson EB-0, two of the tuners are not original. i'd like to find some that match the originals that are on it. ive looked around the internet and eBay to no avail.

    apparently they were cheap Japanese tuners that were mainly used on "budget" (Kalamazoo and Melody Maker) basses, and were rarely used on EB-0s.

    i'm not holding out much hope, and i'll probably just end up replacing all four of them with elephant ear tuners, but i figured i couldnt hurt to asK: anyone know where i can get some of these tuners?

    These come up all the time on ebay.

    Look for someone parting out a Kalamazoo KB bass (a semi-regular occurance)

    Seriously, give it a month or two and some will come up!
