Hi everyone. Its been awhile since I've posted.

I just purchased a lovely Larrivee OM-03 Maple Leaf Peruvian Walnut and I am thinking about changing the tuners.
I think I've read that the Gotoh 510 midsize are drop in  for the Larrivees?

Anyone here used these?
Thank you so much.

I'm thinking about a set for my PV-03.  I know it's been asked (and answered) a hundred times already, but if anyone knows it would be appreciated.

 bigrin Go to Technical Discuussion, then Technical FAQ on this site. I prefer the Gotoh Schaller type myself, rather than the 510s'.They also drop straight in.

I believe that the parlour takes the mini size.  You need to be aware of the angle of the screw.  It comes straight out (Schaller mini) or at an angle (Gotoh mini).  Which type do you have?

Thank you.

Are these the ones that you favor? I'm looking at getting black.

Yes. Direct drop in, and a fantastic tuning machine.

I must be especially lucky, because the Larrivée tuners on my Parlor work perfectly. I assume they are the much maligned Pings, but I've found they do not cause any problems.

The pings on my 99 parlor are still in fine shape.  They've always worked like they should.  The ones on my newer PV-03 are fine, too really.  I just wonder if a set of 21:1 510's would be a nice upgrade.  The ones on my PV have the Schaller type screw placement.  There's no rush, I'll think about what I want to do.

I'm thinking about putting the Gotoh Black midsize. What do you think? or the Gold?

Any way of doing copper or antiqued bronze?  The colors of the leafs beckon to more of a bronze tone rather than black or gold, IMHO.

Yes, for sure, I went with black because of the headstock and gold because its the only finish that I can find to match the leaf.

Are there other flavors available that I've missed?

Beautiful headstock and fretboard! Go with the black as to not draw any attention away from the inlay.

RRGGuitarman.....    Those Gotoh Schallers are the correct ones . Black has to be the go with the Maple,but the Gold ones would look great too.  gotpics? Please show us when you have them installed.

Very nice!

I do like the look of the Gotoh Midsize, but I also like Schaller style. I'm kind of leaning toward the Gotoh Midsize because of the durable finish, at least that what I've gathered from the Gotoh website. Thanks.
