What kind of ebony tuner buttons fit the OM-03 original ping tuners?
The Schaller's? Which ones did you use and was it a perfect fit?

Thanks in advance for the info.

By the way, I'm a new member, hi everybody!

FWIW, I did have the ebonite Larrivee tuner buttons on my original Ping tuners on my D-03. I have found that if the tuners bind some when tuning, so as to make them rather difficult to turn, the ebonite buttons can crack near the base where they screw on. If they do, Larrivee will replace them under warranty if your guitar came with them originally. I have had 3 buttons replaced on mine so far, but ended up changing out my tuners completely and putting some gold "grover-like" tuners on which are smooth as silk to tune with no sloppage.
