Does anyone have a set of the old guitar style machine heads they’d be willing to part with? See my ad for more info and part puns!

I know the pros and cons of these, they seem like my best option at the moment though, or at least worth a try. I’m aware of the modern brass ones as well, not really a good fit visually. Get in touch!

Thanks and happy holidays!

These  probably won't interest you but they got a crudely built, home made fiddle up and running for $13.00 which was about all I wanted to spend on it.

That actually doesn’t look too bad, I’ll keep it in mind! Thanks!

I've got a set of steel patent / machine head tuners that I'd be willing to sell for $40 plus shipping. Like the ones in your picture, they have some replaced machine screws to secure the gears, but the gears are OK and functional. Base plates have stamped design. I have small brass round-head screws that you can have if you are OK with brass. Picture shows the front and back of one set.

That’s what I’m looking for Mark, thanks! I’m going to see if I can hunt some down while I’m visiting Portland this weekend, I’ll get in touch if not!
