Upright Tuning Machine Needed

    I have an Electric Upright that is missing the "clover leaf" or "elephant ear" piece from one of its tuning machines. The tuner works fine. I just want to replace the missing piece.
    The black tuners are in a 2 x 2 configuration. I cannot find a replacement tuner anywhere. The only identification mark is "JAPAN" stamped into the base.

    Most tuners seem to attach to the head stock with 4 screws.
    These just have two and a threaded bushing rather than a pressed in piece.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Though you aren't showing the front side, that looks to be a Gotoh GB528 or GB528S tuner, depending on the length of the knob shaft. You'll need to buy a whole tuner as Gotoh doesn't sell components.
