Let me know if you have one. :) That would rock!
I have these...

I guess you'd need 6 in line like the ones to the left but I only have 3+2 😟

The ones on the right are 6 in line but a bit different... dang, sorry.

But if you want them, you can have em all for free if you pay for the shipping...
My Aria 1832t has the tuners on left. Have you found these to be temperamental, for lack of a better term.

Under tension the can work quite well with healthy strings, but I'm worried that the set on my guitar are going to get gradually worse.

Sometimes the tuning keys move about a bit too loosely, with a bit too much vertical give (the worm/key moves up and down by a couple mm with no tension on the gear :-/ )

Does that reflect what you've seen with these tuners? Or are mine just at their death bed? :bored:

I got a set of those "S" Fender style vintage tuners. Hopefully they go in well without too much problem. :)

BTW I'm currently selling this one... :ph34r:

Oh and has really no one ever posted this about the switching of these?!:

Upper switch is for neck/neck-mid/mid pickups
Lower switch is only for the bridge pickup: on/off/on, but the two on positions sound different - phase or filter of some sorts, I guess...

Those amps look so cool. Never gotten to try any of their stuff but have always liked the aesthetic

I ordered a second guitar. I plan to mix and match to get one I like and use leftovers to make one with a modern thicker body and fender neck.

Well, if you end up with leftover parts you're not using I may beinterested :ph34r: ;)
I've kind of made it a rule in my internet life that I'm just not going to listen to anyone who rants about mystical shit like PIO caps in guitars & all the rest of that junk that's objectively busted or so slight as to be irrelevant. - mackerelmint

The leftover parts I will probably end up with are some tuners, a body, a neck with truss cover, a neck plate and strap buttons. Basically about a full body minus the bridge tremolo and pickups because I want to use that in the new build.

Is the one we traded not working out? :(

I have a bridge if you need or want it, man. It’s missing I think 2 of the saddles. It was on that guitar and was switched out for one that another OSG poster sent me for free a while back. Feels like the least I could do is pay it forward. Dunno if you need it but either way, let me know yeah?

It is working out ok. One of the tuners is bent so I was trying to get a replacement, but it is hard to find the right one. :D Instead of $100 for tuners, I would rather do like $300 for a whole guitar and mix parts. :D The burst body had a split at the neck pocket. I pulled it open and put wood glue in and clamped it for a day. I think it should be solid now.

Wait so the crack re-emerged? That was supposed to have been fixed and as far as I could tell that was the case. Feels shitty especially when thinking about how much joy that T60 has brought me so far. I know about that tuner and the missing ferrule but genuinely thought those were the only problems so I’m sorry about that.

Does the poster up thread not have the tuners you’re looking for? From what I see in their picture they have ones identical to the ones that were on that guitar.

Pats isn't a match I bought some new tuners that were supposed to be drop in upgrades but I would have to ream it out and I would rather put those on a new neck. The crack was open when it arrived but I think it is closed now. No worries. It is fun kinda mixing and matching. I am glad you dig the t60. :)

Would love one of Cross' terms that works with a mustang bridge and jazz tremolo guts, but I am guessing cost wise it wouldn't work out. :)

The Lyle came in. It is so nice I am going to leave it as is and use the Aria parts to build the modern one. :D
