For Sale: 1940's Kluson Tuners For Martin & Gibson Guitars
Here are several SETS of mid 1940's era Kluson tuners with peened worm gears. These appeared on a variety of Martin & Gibson guitars during the 1940's...until 1947? All three sets have ORIGINAL celluloid buttons in good condition...that, in itself, makes these tuners especially rare! All three sets have slightly rolled plates. I also have a few sets of these same looking Kluson tuners but with FLAT PLATES (not pictured here but feel free to contact me for pics if interested?).
One set (front & center) has gears that drop in & out of the plates. The other two sets (in the back, side by side) have gears that are held in place by a pressed-in arch on the plates. Only difference between those two sets with the pressed-in arch is that one set is very clean and the other is slightly more aged and tarnished looking...some folks like the clean look & others like the patina of age!
Each set selling for $300 + $10 shipping in cont. USA.
