    I have a bunch of sets of Waverly tuners, if any of you want them. I'll post them over in the for sale section, but figured that this is a good spot to let you know about them. I needed a few sets and, er, ah, went a bit overboard. They include:
    - Nickel, butterbean buttons - four sets
    - Gold, butterbean buttons - one set
    - Nickel, snakewood buttons
    - one set

    Priced between $130 and $200, depending on the set, plus shipping. I'll update the list whenever a style disappears.

    For those who doen't yet know, these are great for restoring old Gibson/Epiphone/D'A archtops, Martin flattops - unlike Gotohs or Grover 18:1 open-back styles, they are perfect drop-in replacements with correctly-spaced screwholes for old Grovers with similarly shaped mounting plates. And they are great for classing up any other guitars, new or old.

    Come to think of it, I also have a one new set of Gotoh open-back tuners w/butterbean buttons, in chrome.
    $60, plus shipping.

    What is the mounting hole spacing of the Gotohs? I really need chrome/nickel, not gold.

    The Gotoh tuners I have are chrome-plated. Here are Gotoh and Waverly technical specifications. No idea if these drawings are accurate, but they look cool.

    Thumbs up for Hammertone who is as honest as the summer's day is long. I bought a set of Waverlies...Waverlys-dark tortoise buttons, nickel- from him and they are great!
