tuner installation I've ever seen. Making matters worse,the customer told me this work was done by an alleged "professional" at a reputable store. We can see,in our first picture,the original Kluson style tuners have been removed and some Sperzel locking tuners have been installed. For unknown reasons,the original screw holes have been enlarged. It looks like some sort of blunt object was used to make the holes bigger,because they sure aren't round! To fill in these holes,it would appear toothpicks were crammed in the holes,then just snapped off. The Sperzel tuners use a pin on their underside instead of a screw and the hole for the pin was made with equal lack of finesse. The original tuners required a vintage size 1/4" hole. To make the holes bigger to accommodate the 10mm hole required by the Sperzels the "blunt object" technique was again brought into service.
|One of the holes has been drilled right through the top! What?! If you have a drill,why do the holes look so ragged? If you don't have a drill,how do you go right through the top?|
|For some reason,the nut has been removed,then improperly re-installed. Check out that gap under the nut!|
|Here's our tuners,properly installed. This one won't be winning any beauty contests but it looks...acceptable.|
|Here's our boy from the front. Just a minimum of time to make the drill hole through the front less obvious and a new,properly fitted bone nut.|
