What would be the closest drop in replacement tuners for an Epiphone EB3?

    I have a blue Epiphone EB3 and since the new pickups I'm installing are black I thought it would be cool to do a black and blue color scheme (I'm calling it the bruiser). I was going to replace the bridge with a hipshot bridge so I'll just get that in black, but which of their tuning keys (or any other company's tuning keys) that are available in black do you guys think would be the closest thing to a drop in replacement? I want something as close to the original as possible, the big vintage style clover heads with an open back.

    It appears that either the Hipshot HB1 or HB5 may be a drop in replacement. I notice on their web site they have use the same image for bothe tuners (notice the blemishes in both pics) Worth a call to Hipshot and ask.

    I put the Hipshot in my EB3; went in and work perfectly.
