The recent limited edition tuners thread got me thinking about upgrading my OO-05 buttons to 18:1 ratio tuners.

Might as well go with the ones on Larrivee's store but curious about who they get them from and if the buttons can be swapped out for Abalone like vintage white ones?

The 18:1 tuners that came with my recent purchase are a revelation to me. With my impatience with tuning I usually settle for "close enough" but now I can really go for "right on the money"

I suggest you contact Larrivee directly and ask them, as they'd be the most likely to know the answer to your question.

Thanks MM.

I've pretty much exhausted Google on this and am surprised there's no US distributor for Gotoh's complete lineup. Found some sites that listed a few models but none that sell all the Gotoh buttons separately. I just got a quote from Gotoh - Japan via Canada for about $100 for the 510s and vintage buttons but may settle for the chrome buttons I saw on Amazon.

In any event, the 510's that came on my new/old OOV have spoiled me on 18:1 tuners, they're really nice!
