    Guys-

    I don't know who Gibson used to supply tuners back in the 1970's. Maybe someone out there knows better than I.

    These look like Grovers or possibly Hipshots. But one thing is for certain: The tuners have Gibson Etched on the back plates and without question, new old stock. The tuners are part of an inventory buy out my brother and I took on from a retired 70 year old Luthier about two years ago.

    They look to be mid to late 70's tuners. Black chrome and very rare indeed. 4-in-line...right handed.

    Without question, I can tell these are high quality tuners. They're brand new. We really can't use them for our custom Buscanti basses, because they have the Gibson name on them. So off they must go.

    Price: Only $75 shipped and insured...Conus. Because of the fact that these look to be that old, I will be insuring them no matter what... I like Paypal...

    I'm here on Tuesday, but gone until Friday.

    Thanks...Jazz..

    What size are the posts? Would they fit on a fender-style neck?

    Yes.. They are the same as the fender standard holes.

    And...There gone. It's amazing you say "Grover" and they sit for enternity. But once I was corrected that they were "Schallers" all of a sudden every one wants them.
