Title: Tuning Machine Knobs
Post by: 12barBill on April 26, 2005, 05:20:56 PM
Does anyone know where I can get some white or "perloid" knobs, preferably small, that will fit Gotoh tuning machines. I have checked StewMac and First Quality Music and can't find them.

I'm thinking about buying the gold "Schaller style" Gotoh tuners from StewMac, but I want to replace the large, gold knobs with white, oval ones.    

Thanks for your help.

Bill

After a couple of e-mails back and forth with Allparts I found what I was looking for there (white oval knobs to fit Gotoh tuning machines).

Thanks for the heads-up Rob. I appreciate it.

I'm going to buy the "Schaller style" Gotoh tuners (gold) from StewMac and put the white oval knobs on them. My Artist series Seagull has gold tuners with small, white knobs and I like the look.
