    Hi,

    I Love my Gretsch Streamliner but the tuning pegs not so much, the G peg broke off anyway and I replaced it with a cheap crappy one to get through the gig but now I want to replace all of them, what do you suggest?

    Grover?

    Also, I want to change the nut to a bone one, any thoughts and advice greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance,
    Real Rob

    Yep, because there's a big difference between the ones made in the 50s & 60s, and the current ones. The ones made in the 50s and 60s, used Waverly tuners.

    first post...i'd assume he has new streamliner...grovers 102-18

    IMHO, the stock tuners suck bad, so in searching for info about replacements I found the thread regarding the 2622 where it was alluded that Grovers may fit, but no one there had confirmed for sure. Based on that, I bought a set of 102-18's to try and I can confirm they are an exact drop-in replacement for the stock tuners.

    cheers

    ps- bone nuts are good...just make sure to have installed by competent repairman as the slots need to be filed just right!
