    4x2 tuners and brown pearl buttons

    Hey guys, I'm looking for tuners for my musicman. I have the schallers, but they have taken a beating. I use Gotoh on my personal client builds, so I am wondering if anyone can steer me to a 4x2 Gotoh seller for my Luke iii? I also want to change out the buttons to brown pearloid. Working on something you guys will dig. Send em some links if you know any.

    4x2 are special order from Gotoh. Any Gotoh dealer will be able to get them.

    You’ll need the 135 degree fitting to align with your screw holes in the headstock

    The Gotoh equivalent of the Stock Schaller’s would be these: SGS510Z - G-GOTOH

    SGS510Z-MGT

    That is 1:18 ratio with a thumb wheel for locking

    The correct button shape is A07 (closest to brown pearl would be the “P8” button)

    For locking without a thumb wheel take the “T” off MGT

    I’ve started using the 1:21 ratio. They fit fine on The elongated musicman headstock, but not sure about the normal headstock. I’ll be putting a set on my Albert Lee HH in a few weeks so will know soon enough

    I put tortoise buttons on my Valentine and it looks great. In fact, I also used the same gotoh SGS510Z's on my Cutlass RS and ASS. I went with the magnum locks, top locking, no thumbscrew.

    The tortoise buttons aren't sold by Gotoh or g-jax but I found them on ebay. The part number is All Parts (TK-7728-043).


    Here's the thread with some more before and after pics. All Gotoh'd up

    It was your changeover that spurred me on to change mine

    Not sure if you already purchased but Hipshot makes a great 4x2 set 18:1 ratio/closed tuner. Purchased an all black set($55 new) for my OLP mm1. Went on FeeBay and purchased amber pearloid buttons that fit perfectly
