Gibson Firebird Problem

Postby nullard on Tue May 18, 2010 11:20 am


Just posting a quick message to ask if anyone out there had a solution to the following problem.

While on tour, I broke the A tuner on my firebird (broken inside I suppose, as I can tune for something like 350° of the rotation and then a cling and the string gets detuned...).

I checked the web and noticed that no "official gibson" tuners were available as spare parts... The only solution I found is the Steinberg Gearless Tuners, but I'd love to stick to the original machine heads.

Do you guys know where I could find some spare gibson banjo tuners?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

if it's too loud, you're too old!

You might try the old Gibson plant in Kalamazoo Michigan, usa. It is now housed by Heritage Guitars. Although the plant makes originals, they do resemble Gibson guitars, and the plant may give you leads for close to exact replacements.

Ask Gibson? How old is the guitar?
