Tuners

I frequently have the opportunity to acquire sets of vintage guitar and mandolin tuners. There are slot head tuners and solid head, 1920s- 1970s. All of the sets in this list are fully functional, any shortcomings of individual sets are described fully. The sets do not contain bushings unless specified. Contact me for pictures of sets that might interest you, but please be sure to reference the set number when emailing an inquiry.

Set 56: Early 1970s chrome Grover Rotomatics, these have the flat cover plate on the back as opposed to domed, marked “pat pend”, good condition cosmetically and functionally.
Set 68: 40s/50s no-name strip tuners for slot head, open gear, brass posts with a steel plate, off white buttons, excellent cosmetic and functional condition, good quality.
Set 71: Mid 1930s Grover stay tites with pointed plate and beveled edge, nickel finish, off white buttons, 6:1 turning ration, excellent condition with bushings and screws.
Set 72: Mid 1930s Grover stay tites, clipped plate with nickel finish and off white buttons, 6:1 turning ratio, excellent condition with bushings and screws.
Set 89: 19 th century brass plate strip tuners for slot head guitar, original bone buttons, plates are 3 7/8” in length, post spacing is 1 7/16”, one button shaft has a very slight bend but it's minimal, all gears turn freely, 16:1 ratio.
  Set 91: Late 1960s/early 70s Grover G-98 ‘stay tite' tuners, in the late 60s the Stay tite lost it's familiar scalloped button shape in favor of these square buttons, chrome finish, these were found on most 00-18 Martins from '68 or '69 through the early 70s, bushings included.
Set 97: Late 19 th century/early 20 th century brass plate slot head tuners, solid brass plate/gears/barrels with ivoroid buttons, not sure of the manufacturer but I've seen these exact tuners on several Bruno and Bay State instruments. These tuners have no bent shafts or barrels, all of the gears turn freely, functionally very good. Cosmetically very good as well. The buttons are quite thick and a little shrunken but they are not cracked or crumbling, they will hold up fine.
Set 103: 1930s Waverly strip tuners as found on many National resonators and other guitars from the period. 3 on a plate for slot head, squared plate end, brass gears and barrels with nickel plate, the buttons are off-white which have darkened to a deep amber color, plates are marked “Waverly Musical Products Co. Inc. New York ”. The plates are in good condition with slight discoloration and surface staining, buttons are all in good shape and all the gears turn freely and smoothly. One shaft was slightly bent but has been straightened.
Set 119:  1930s Waverly strip tuners for slot head guitar.  This set was once nickel plated but all of the plating has worn off.  The planks are marked “Waverly Musical Instrument Products Inc”.  Gears and barrels are brass, the original buttons are black.  Though the plating is worn off the buttons are in excellent shape and all the tuners turn freely with no binding or tight spots.
Set 121:  1930s Kluson 3 on a plate open back tuners for slot head as found on some National and other quality slot head guitars of the pre-war years.  The plates are marked “Kluson Mfg Chicago Ill.”  Nickel plate, brass barrels and gears and off-white buttons.  This set has some plate corrosion but the tuners turn freely with no binding or tight spots.  Fair cosmetically, excellent functionally.  12:1 turning ratio.
Set 127:  Late 60s/early 70s Grover G-98 “Stay-tite” tuners in nickel finish.  These tuners were found most commonly on 00 and 000-18 style Martins from about the middle of 1968 through the early 70s.  These tuners have a ratio of 12:1 and all turn smoothly with no binding or tight spots.  They are in excellent cosmetic and functioning condition.
Set #162: 1950s/60s Grover G-98 “stay-tite” open back individual tuners. These were found on many 0, 00 and 000 14 fret Martins during the late 50s and through the 60s. 12:1 turning ratio and 7/32” shaft diameter. This set is in excellent condition cosmetically and functionally, all the tuners turn freely without binding or tight spots. Hex bushings and original mounting screws included.
Set #165: 1950s/60s Grover G-98 “stay-tite” open back individual tuners. These were found on many 0, 00 and 000 14 fret Martins during the late 50s and through the 60s. 12:1 turning ratio and 7/32” shaft diameter. This set is in excellent condition cosmetically and functionally, all the tuners turn freely without binding or tight spots. Hex bushings and original mounting screws included.
Set #168: 1950s/60s Grover G-98 “stay-tite” open back individual tuners. These were found on many 0, 00 and 000 14 fret Martins during the late 50s and through the 60s. 12:1 turning ratio and 7/32” shaft diameter. This set is in excellent condition cosmetically and functionally, all the tuners turn freely without binding or tight spots. Hex bushings and original mounting screws included.
Set #170: This is a set of late 19th or early 20th century strip tuners in brass with exquisite floral engraving and solid bone buttons. These might have been made by Waverly but I can’t for certain. They have the reverse gear orientation that is common to strip tuners prior to about 1928. These were reported to have come off of an 1890s Martin but I cannot confirm this for sure. However, I have seen tuners of this exact type and engraving pattern on several late 19th and early 20th century Martins. These are in excellent functional and cosmetic shape. Super rare.
Set #173: Nickel plate strip tuners (probably Waverly) for solid headstock (if you need these for slot head please inquire, I probably have slot head barrels I could swap out to make these good for slot head). This is a very rare ornately engraved set, floral engraving with fronds and leaves and a decorative border, very high style. Very similar tuners were used on the Gibson style 0 “Artist” model guitar and some Gibson harp guitars (as solid head tuners) and on Martin pearl trimmed guitars (as slot head tuners) during the 20s. these are “reverse gear” orientation so they are likely pre-1927. Superb condition cosmetically and functionally, they almost look new-old-stock, unused. All original parts including buttons. Super rare.
Set #180: 1950s/60s Grover G-98 "stay-tite" individual tuners as were found on many smaller body Martin guitars of the period (particulary the 00 and 000-18 models).  This set is clean with no corrosion or plating loss, all original parts.  Functionally very good, bushings and screws included.
Set #182: 1950s/60s Grover G-98 "stay-tite" individual tuners as were found on many smaller body Martin guitars of the period (particulary the 00 and 000-18 models).  This set is clean with no corrosion or plating loss, all original parts.  Functionally very good, bushings and screws included.
Set #184:   1950s/60s Grover G-98 "stay-tite" individual tuners as were found on many smaller body Martin guitars of the period (particulary the 00 and 000-18 models).  This set is clean with no corrosion or plating loss, all original parts.  Functionally very good, bushings and screws included.
Set 190: 1950s/60s Grover G-98 "stay-tite" individual tuners as were found on many smaller body Martin guitars of the period (particulary the 00 and 000-18 models). This set is clean with only a couple of tiny spots of corrosion or plating loss. Functionally very good, mounting screws and bushings included.
Set #215: 1950s “single line” Kluson Deluxe strip tuners as were found on most Gibson guitars of the 1950s (the LG series, the J-45, J-50, and others). All original , cosmetically clean, and in good working order. The buttons are solid and uncracked and not shrunken. All of the tuners turn smoothly, 12:1 ratio and ¼” barrels. Bushings included.
Set #216: 1950s “single line” Kluson Deluxe strip tuners as were found on most Gibson guitars of the 1950s (the LG series, the J-45, J-50, and others). All original and in good working order. There is a small amount of corrosion on the plates but nothing serious. The buttons are solid and uncracked and not shrunken. All of the tuners turn smoothly, 12:1 ratio and ¼” barrels. Bushings and mounting screws included.
#224:  Late 40s/early 50s Kluson Deluxe “single line” strip tuners as found on many Gibson models from the late 40s through the 50s, these were used on the LG series, J-45, J-50 and (I think,,,) the SJ as well.  This set has all of its original parts except for the buttons, which have been replaced with perfect repros.  The set is good shape functionally.  There is a little plating corrosion or discoloration on one plate, the other plate is very clean and bright.  Barrels are 7/32” in diameter and the turning ratio is 12:1.  An appropriate set of bushings is included.   All turn freely without binding or slipping.
#225:  1930s Grover G-93 individual tuners for solid headstock (I’ve also heard these referred to as G-97 N tuners, not sure which label is most correct).  These are the exact tuners that were used on many pre-war D-18s (I believe starting in about ’36) as well as some other Martin models (000-28, 000-18, D-28).  This set has clean plating with only a little surface corrosion or discoloration on a few spots.  The barrels measure 7/32” and have a 12:1 turning ratio.  All of the tuners have all of the original gears and barrels.  They all turn freely and hold tune.  Original bushings included.  This is a very rare set for some of the most collectible guitars ever made.
#227:  1930s gold plated brass strip tuners for slot head with engraved plate and solid pearl buttons.  This set could possibly have been made by Waverly or Kluson but I can’t say with any certainty.   These came off of a 30s Washburn 00 12 fret presentation grade guitar.  All parts are original with the exception of the A string barrel and crown gear, which have been replaced.  The buttons are in excellent condition, unchipped and solid, all of the tuners turn freely.  12:1 ratio and 7/32” barrels.  One of the two plates shows a little plating loss but nothing serious.  The engraving is bold and elegant.  This is a very rare set.
Set #231:  1950s era Kluson DeLuxe 'single line' strip tuners with off-white buttons as found on Gibson J-45 and J-50 guitars of the period as well as on some LG series guitars.  The set is in excellent condition with no plating loss and all original parts. The turning ratio is 12:1 and all the tuners turn freely without tight spots or binding and all are tight with no slop in the gear fit or operation.  The set has its original bushings and mounting screws as well. 
Set #232:  1970s era Grover rotomatics as found on Martin D-18 and D-28 models as well as various Guild models of the 70s.  This set came off of a Guild from the early 70s.  The set is in excellent condition both functionally and cosmetically, no plating loss and smooth operation.  Mounting screws included (though not pictured). 
Set #237:  1950s era Kluson DeLuxe 'single line' strip tuners with off-white buttons as found on Gibson J-45 and J-50 guitars of the period as well as on some LG series guitars.  The set is in excellent condition with only the slightest surface wear to the plating.  The off-white buttons have been replaced with modern reproduction buttons as the old set was crumbling.  The tuner button replacements are perfect repros by Blazer and Henkes. The turning ratio is 12:1 and all the tuners turn freely without tight spots or binding and all are tight with no slop in the gear fit or operation.  The set has its original mounting screws, the bushings are modern reproductions of the originals.
Set #241: 1950s Waverly individual tuners for solid headstock such as were found on many Gretsch guitars of the 50s as well as some Martin style 17 guitars. These have the traditional Waverly plate shape and plastic buttons, 7/32” barrels, 12:1 turning ratio. All turn easily with no tight spots. Bushings and screws included.
Set #243: 1930s Waverly WG-31 strip tuners for slot head with floral engraving. This is an ultra-rare tuner set that was found on 1930s Martin pearl guitars. They were also sometimes found on some Weymann and Vega guitars but are most closely associated with Martin’s pearl slot heads. This set has the classic Waverly WG-31 plate profile with nickel plating but also has a very elegant “flower and fronds” engraving design around the mounting screw holes. This set is excellent cosmetically and is excellent functionally. All original parts. If you need these this may be the only time you ever see a set offered for sale.
Set #255: Late 20s/early 30s Waverly WG-31 strip tuners with nickel plating, ivoroid buttons and beautiful ‘flowers and fronds” engraving. This style of slot head tuner was used on many pearl top Martin guitars in the 20s as well as on some Larson Bros, Vega, Weymann and other quality made instruments. The plating is in superb condition with no corrosion, discoloration or loss. One of the ivoroid buttons has a very small crack at the base and appears to have been glued but it is solid to the shaft and functions fine. All turn freely and hold tune well. Replacement mounting screws. Super rare set.
Set 263:   Mid to late 1960s Grover rotomatic "Pat. Pend" marked tuners as were found on the D-28 and D-35 of the late 60s. This set has rather uniform pitting in the plating on every tuner but they are functionally fine.  Would look right on a late 60s D-28 or D-35 that has a little wear. Original mounting screws. 
Set 265:  Mid 1930s Waverly strip tuners for solid headstock as were found on some Gibson L-00 guitars.  This set is brass with nickel plating, some of the plating has worn off.  There are two worm gear shafts that have been replaced, the buttons appear to be replaced but of the proper type and from the same period.  They have a 12:1 turning ratio and 7/32" barrels.  The bushings are not original to the set but are period correct hex bushings.  Replacement mounting screws.  All the tuners turn freely and hold tune. 
Set 268: Slot head strip tuners in brass with plastic buttons.  19th or early 20th century, not sure if they are European or American made.  14:1 gear ratio.  The plates, gears, barrels and buttons are in excellent shape and turn freely.  The post spacing is 33 mm (app. 1 9/16”) and the plate length is 4”.  Replacement screws. 
Set 269:  19th century strip tuners for slot head guitar, not sure if the set is European or American made.  All of the metal parts are brass and the buttons bone.  The post spacing is 1 9/32” and the plate length 3 7/8”.  14:1 turning ratio.  All the tuners turn freely with no problems, two button stems have just a hint of bend but not enough to impact function at all.  One button has a small chip but it is solid as are the other 5 buttons.  Replacement screws. 
Set 270:  1940s Waverly individual tuners as were found on some Martin models in ’41 and ’42 then again in ’46 and ’47. These were also found on some Larson built guitars of the same era. This set has a plate-end shape that is commonly called “yoda head” for obvious reasons, this set has off white plastic buttons and a 12:1 ratio, 7/32” barrel diameter, all the gears, shafts and buttons are original.  The set includes a period set of hex bushings that might be original to the set, not sure.  No bent shafts, plating and buttons in good shape, all turn freely.  Rare set. 
Set 283:  1930s Waverly solid headstock strip tuners as were found on many Gibson L-00 guitars of the 30s.  This set has off-white buttons.  The turning ratio is 12:1 and all the tuners turn freely.  All parts of the tuners are original, the bushings are of the proper type but may not be original to the set.  Plates show little corrosion or discoloration, they have a little grime on them that could be cleaned up or left alone depending on the condition of the guitar they are to go on. 
Set 284:  1930s Waverly strip tuners for slot head guitar with black buttons.  These tuners were found on some early 30s Martin 0-17 and 0-17H models, as well as some examples of Martin’s 2-17, as well as other makes. This set has some minor plating loss and discoloration but overall they are in good shape cosmetically and mechanically. 
Set 293:  Late 20s/early 30s brass plate strip tuners, probably made by Waverly, with black buttons.  This style tuner was found on some size 2, 0 and 00 style 17 slot head Martins during the late 20s and early 30s.  This set has all of its original parts and the set functions fine.  Cosmetically excellent. 
Set 298:  1960s Grover “Pat. Pend.” Marked Rotomatic tuners in chrome finish.  These were found on the Martin D-18 and D-28 from about 1966 to about 1970.  Functionally and cosmetically very good.  Original mounting screws included. 
Set 302: Waverly 3 on a plate tuners in nickel finish, for solid headstock, 1950s or 60s. These were found on many Harmony guitars as well as on some Guilds and Gretsch instruments. Original parts, excellent condition cosmetically and functionally.
Set 303: Mid-late 60s Grover rotomatic tuners with the “Pat. Pend USA” stamp on the back of the sealed gear housing. These were the tuners found on the Martin D-18 and D-28 during the mid to late 60s as well as on some Gibson and other brand guitars. No plating loss, smooth function, ready to go. Original mounting screws included.
Set 305: 1930s steel plate strip tuners for solid headstock. This set has off-white buttons and would be appropriate for some Gibson L-00s and some Kalamazoo guitars, as well as other budget makes. All original parts including bushings and mounting screws, cosmetically and functionally very good.
Set 306: Mid-50s Kluson Deluxe enclosed individual tuners such as were used on the martin D-18 during the middle 50s and other guitars as well. This set has a lot of plating discoloration and would be good for a slightly ragged looking old guitar. Functionally good, bushings and mounting screws are replacements.
Set 307: RARE Teens/1920s Waverly nickel plate strip tuners for slot head with cross-hash plate engraving and solid mother-of-pearl buttons. This set has all of its original parts and is in excellent condition. The plating is clean and the buttons uncracked, no bent shafts or other functional issues. Most likely would have been found on a high end (pearl trimmed) Larson, Washburn, Weymann or Martin guitar from the teens or 20s.
Set 310: 1970s Grover Rotomatic tuners in nickel finish, found on the Martin D-18 and D-28 in the 70s. this set is super clean with no plating loss and excellent function. Original mounting screws.
Set 311:  Early 20th century brass plate strip tuners with hash mark decoration, probably teens, reverse gear, slightly unusual post spacing measuring 1 3/8” from the D to A string, and 1 13/32” from the D to E string and the same corresponding measurements on the treble plate.  Might fit a guitar with holes drilled at an even 1 3/8” with a little coaxing.  These are for slot head and are very similar to the brass plate Waverlys found on most Martin style 18 slot head guitars during the 20s.  Functionally and cosmetically very good. 
Set 313:  Early 1970s Grover rotomatic tuner in chrome finish as were found on D-18 and D-28 guitars of the early to middle 70s.  This set has all of its original parts and is cosmetically and functionally excellent.
Set 314:  This is a gorgeous set of tuners that are probably European and most likely late 19th century.  They have German silver plates, posts, gears and shafts and the plates have lovely decorative engraving.  The posts are solid (not hollow) and the buttons are solid mother of pearl.  The tuners also have a finer gear ratio that is generally seen on early tuners, that being 16:1.  All of the gears, shafts and posts are solid as are the buttons, the action of the tuners is smooth and precise, the mesh of the parts is tight with no slop in the fit of any of the gears.  They have a post spacing of 1 11/32” between the D and A string and 1 3/8” between the A and E string, with the same corresponding measurements on the treble plate.  I have no idea what they might have gone on but they would look great on the headstock of any 19th century presentation grade or pearl inlaid guitar.
Set 317:  :  Late 1940s Kluson deluxe strip tuners as found on Gibson J-45 and J-50 guitars, the LG series and others.  This set is the “no line” variety, meaning that they have no Kluson marking on the gear cover, neither do these have any patent marking. The no-line variety of this tuner was in use from about 1948 to (I think) about ’51 or ’52.  The barrels are brass and ¼” diameter.  The off-white buttons are replacements.  The plating shows minor pitting and very light corrosion but it is superficial and the tuners function well.  I don’t know if I’ve got a set of bushings for these, I will check on request. 
Set 318:  Early 1950s 1940s Kluson deluxe strip tuners as found on Gibson J-45 and J-50 guitars, the LG series and others.  This set is the “single line” variety, meaning that they have “Kluson Deluxe” marking in a single line on the gear cover, and these bear two patent numbers (2132792 and 2356766) on the underside of each plate.  The barrels are brass and ¼” diameter.  The off-white buttons are replacements.  The plating is in good shape, there is a little play in the gears but they seem to function well and hold tune. I don’t know if I’ve got a set of bushings for these, I will check on request. 
Set 324:  1930s Waverly WG-31 open gear strip tuners for slot head as were found on virtually every slot head style 21 guitar from the late 20s on and continued to be used on the 00-21 right up through the 60s.  While the style 28 usually got these tuners with “oak leaf” engraving I’ve seen this simpler plate on a few 28s also.  These tuners have nickel plating and ivoroid buttons, all of the parts are original and very clean.  The tuners function well.  This is a rare set. 
Set 326:  Kluson open back strip tuners for solid headstock as found on most Gibsons during the pre-war era and also on some post-war Gibson guitars as well.  This set has very clean plating, the buttons are replaced but all other parts are original.  The replacement buttons are Blazer and Henkes buttons, perfect repros of the originals.  The set functions smoothly.  12:1 ratio, ¼” barrels, bushings included. 
Set 327:  Mid 50s-early 60s Kluson Deluxe “single line” enclosed strip tuners with plastic buttons as were found on many Gibson acoustic and electric models of the 50s and 60s.  These are in excellent cosmetic and functional condition with no plating loss, original buttons along with original bushings and mounting screws.  Proper for many J-50, C & W, J-45 and other Gibson models of the 50s and 60s. 
Set 331:  1930s steel plate open gear strip tuners with black buttons, tuners like this were found on some Gibson L model guitars as well as some Kalamazoos, other brands as well.  Look like they are probably made by Waverly but there’s no marking.  The plates show corrosion but the tuners function fine, original buttons and gears, 12:1 ratio and 7/32” barrels.  The bushings are of a type that was often used with this sort of tuner but they are not original to the set, the mounting screws are modern replacements. 
Set 332:  Gold Grover Rotomatics, probably 1970s or 80s.  Found on some Gibson and Guild guitars.  They are a little dirty but will clean up easily if desired, the plating on the buttons and housing is worn but the look is right for an old guitar.  Replaced mounting screws. 
Set 334:  Gold Grover Rotomatics, probably 70s-90s, excellent condition all around with spotless plating and no crud.  Found on some Guilds and Gibsons, nice set, original mounting screws. 
Set 338:  Super rare and gorgeous brass plate, floral engraved slot head tuners from the late 19th or early 20th century, most likely made by Waverly.  I’ve seen these exact tuners on several Martin 0-28 and 0-21 style guitars from the 1890s through about 1910.  The post spacing is 1 3/8”.  Functionally good, all original parts including the buttons, which are in good shape. 
Set 339:  1930s Kluson open back strip tuners with black buttons, commonly found on L-0, L-00 and some Kalamazoo models (like the KG-11 and KG-14, among others).  This set is nickel plated and bears the “Kluson Mfg. Chicago” stamp around one mounting screw hole and the patent number around another mounting screw hole.  This set has a little very minor plating loss or discoloration but the cosmetic presentation is good.  Functionally fine.  12:1 ratio, 7/32” barrels.  The original buttons have shrunken somewhat but are solid to the posts.  I’m offering this set with six perfect Kluson reproduction buttons, the buyer can hold them for replacement when necessary or on request I’ll remove the old buttons and install the new ones at time of purchase.  The bushings and mounting screws are period if not original (not sure). 
Set 341:  1930s Waverly WG-31 strip tuners in nickel finish for slot head mount.  This is the tuner that was found on most style 21 and 28 slot head Martins (00-21, 00-28, 000-28) during the 30s.  However, I have appropriate solid head barrels to swap out if you need them for a solid headstock.  In solid head configuration these were found on some Gibson L series and style 0 Artist model guitars as well as on some early L-1 and L-2 models, along with some Larson guitars.  The set is in good functional condition and has some light pitting of the plating but overall they are good cosmetically.  One button has been replaced. 
Set 342:  1930s Waverly strip tuners for solid headstock as were found on some L-00 and L-0 models in the 30s.  These have black buttons which were also commonly found on some of the Kalamazoo instruments of the period.  This set is clean cosmetically and good functionally, several crowns gears and barrels have been replaced, 7/32” barrels and 12:1 ratio, bushings included.
Set 346: pre-war Grover G-93 nickel tuners as were found on many Martin style 17 and 18 guitars with solid pegheads during the 30s (D-18, 000-18, some 00-17s).  This set has a 6:1 turning ratio and all original parts including hex bushings and mounting screws.  The barrels measure 7/32”.  All turn freely and hold tune.  The plating is in very good condition with only the slightest pitting here and there, they look their age without looking ragged.  Rare set for some of the most collectible and valuable guitars ever made.
Set 347:  1930s Waverly WG-31 strip tuners in nickel finish with ivoroid buttons.  All parts original including mounting screws.  This set has barrels for solid headstock mount, and used in this manner they were found on some Gibson L-1 and Nick Lucas model guitars, as well as the style 0 Artist model, and also on some Weymann and Vega guitars.  I’ve got slot head barrels to swap out to make these work for a slotted head guitar, and these are right for just about every style 21 and 28 slotted head Martin of the 1930s. The set is super clean with no plating loss or pitting, has the Waverly trade mark and patent mark on the back of the plate.
Set 351:  1930s Kluson strip tuners with patent marks around the mounting screw holes and black buttons.  Found on many Gibsons in the 30s, with the black buttons I’ve seen them on black finish L-00 models and they are also found on just about all of the Kalamazoo guitars of the 30s.  Plating and buttons (replacements) in excellent shape, functionally very good.  The bushings and mounting screws are original.  7/32” barrels. 
Set 352:  SUPER RARE Grover brass plate strip tuners for solid headstock, these have the Gibson style “open book” shape to the end of the plate.  Marked “Grover” under the crown gear of the middle tuner on each plate.  Nicely patinated and functionally excellent, original buttons.  7/32” barrels. Mounting screws are replacements.  I do not have the original brass hex bushings, I can supply a set of bushings of the proper shape and size but in nickel finish as opposed to brass. 
Set 353:  1930s Kluson strip tuners with patent marks around the mounting screw holes and black buttons.  Found on many Gibsons in the 30s, with the black buttons I’ve seen them on black finish L-00 models and they are also found on just about all of the Kalamazoo guitars of the 30s.  Plating shows a little age and surface discoloration but no plating loss, functionally very good.  The buttons have shrunken slightly but are solid and un-cracked.    The bushings are original,mounting screws are replacements.  7/32” barrels. 
Set 356:  SUPER RARE Grover brass plate strip tuners for solid headstock, these have the Gibson style “open book” shape to the end of the plate.  Marked “Grover” under the crown gear of the middle tuner on each plate.  Nicely patinated and functionally excellent, original buttons.  7/32” barrels. Mounting screws are replacements.  I do not have the original brass hex bushings, I can supply a set of bushings of the proper shape and size but in nickel finish as opposed to brass. 
Set 357:  1950s/60s Waverly strip tuners for solid headstock.  These tuners were found on some Guild electric and acoustic guitars, as well as many Harmony flat tops.  Also, when mounted with barrels for slot headstock these are right for Martin G and C series nylon string slot head guitars from the 50s and 60s.  I have slot head appropriate barrels to swap out if you need these for a 50s or 60s Martin 00-18C, 00-28G or other nylon string model, so inquire if you need these for slot head.  The set is functionally and cosmetically excellent, original buttons and all other parts including bushings and mounting screws, no plating loss.
Set 358:  1950s Kluson open back tuners for solid headstock as were found on most Martin 00-17, 0-17 and 0-15 models of the 50s.  This set is in good working and cosmetic order, a couple of the buttons are replaced with period buttons taken off of other Klusons from this era but all other parts are original including bushings.  Mounting screws are not pictured but will be included (non-original). 
Set 359:  1930s Waverly WG-31 strip tuners in nickel finish with off-white buttons.  All parts original and in excellent condition.  This set has barrels for solid headstock mount, and used in this manner they were found on some Gibson L-1 and Nick Lucas model guitars, as well as the style 0 Artist model, and also on some Weymann and Vega guitars.  I’ve got slot head barrels to swap out to make these work for a slotted head guitar, and these are right for just about every style 21 and 28 slotted head Martin of the 1930s. The set is super clean with no plating loss or pitting, has the Waverly trade mark and patent mark on the back of the plate. 
Set 361:  1940s/50s no-name strip tuners for solid headstock, not marked but nice quality, I’ve seen these exact tuners on several Regal jumbo guitars from the late 40s and a few lap steels as well.  Excellent condition cosmetically and functionally.  1 3/8” post spacing, 7/32” post diameter.
Set 362:  Early to mid 1930s strip tuners for slot head, likely Waverly but not marked, off white buttons.  Found on many brands of the era, the set has some light surface discoloration and pitting but nothing serious, functionally fine, mounting screws included. 1 3/8” post spacing and 7/32” post diameter. 
Set 363:  Very rare and excellent condition/all original set of late 30s Grover G-98 tuners as were found on many Martin dreadnoughts of the pre-war era as well as some Martin C and F series archtops and several Gibson and Larson Brothers models.  Very clean and functionally good, very hard to come by, original mounting screws and press-fit hex bushings. 
Set 364:  1930s Kluson strip tuners with black buttons, “Kluson Mfg. Co. Chicago ILL” and patent number around the mounting screw holes on the outside face of the plate.  This set is for slot headstock, but I may have a set of solid headstock bushings available to swap out if you need these for a pre-war Gibson or Kalamazoo.  Very good condition cosmetically and functionally, 1 3/8” post spacing and 7/32” post diameter. 
Set 365:  1930s Kluson strip tuners for solid headstock with black buttons, this set has the “Kluson Mfg. CO Chicago ILL” and patent pending stamp around the mounting screw holes on the down-face of the tuner plate.  All original parts and buttons, headstock bushings and mounting screws, cosmetically and functionally very good.  Found on many Kalamazoo and Gibson guitars of the pre-war era.  1 3/8” spacing and 7/32” post diameter. 
Set 367: 1920s Waverly nickel plate strip tuners for slot head with ivoroid buttons. These are pre-27 so they have the early ‘reverse gear’ orientation, which means when mounted for proper turning direction the crown gear is above the worm gear. The plates have a ‘saw tooth’ end and cross hash stamped decoration along the edges. These exact tuners were used on style 28 Martin slot head guitars of the 20s and also on some Larson slot head guitars. The post spacing is 1 3/8”, posts are .247 in diameter and the plates 4 3/16” long. 12:1 ratio. All the gears turn freely and hold tune, buttons are perfect, all parts original but the mounting screws are replacements. Very rare set.
Set 368: Pre-war Grover G-98 ‘stay tite’ tuners with scalloped buttons. These are post ’36 so they have the 12:1 turning ratio. The plating is in very good shape, nicely patinated. These were found on most 14 fret style 28 Martins and some style 18s from ’37 on to about ’41. All of the tuners turn freely without binding or tight spots and hold tune. One cap screw is replaced, all other parts original. The bushings are not original to the set but are proper hex type replacements. Mounting screws are replacements as well. Barrels measure .247” in diameter.
Set 369: Late 20s/early 30s Waverly strip tuners for slot head with “fleur-de-lis” plate engraving. These tuners were found on many National resonator guitars of the 20s and 30s as well as on some rosewood Martin slot head guitars from the late 20s and early 30s. All of the parts are original, the buttons and plating are in excellent condition. All of the gears turn freely and hold tune. Barrel diameter is .220”, barrel spacing is 1 3/8” and the plates are 4 3/8”. Very hard to find.
Set 370: Pre-war Grover G-93 (I’ve also heard these called G-97N, not 100% sure which is correct) tuners as found on most 000-18s,D-18s of the late 30s (and a few other models as well). This set is post ’36 so it has a 12:1 turning ratio. The plating is in good shape overall with a little dirt and minor pitting here and there, I’ve left them as found but they’d likely brighten up quite a bit if cleaned. This set is all original including mounting screws and bushings. All of the tuners turn freely with no binding or tight spots and they hold tune. The barrel diameter is .215”.
Set 371: 1930s Kluson strip tuners for solid headstock. This set has had the buttons replaced with perfect repros of the originals. The plating is in superb condition, very bright. The plates have the Kluson trade mark stamp and patent stamp around the mounting screw holes. Barrel diameter is .215”, plate length is 4 ¼” and the post spacing 1 3/8”. These tuners were found on most pre-war Gibson guitars (J-35, L-00) as well as some other brands. The bushings and mounting screws are replacements.
Set 372: 1930s Kluson strip tuners for solid head stock. Buttons are replaced with perfect repros, this set has the “Kluson Mfg. Co” and patent number stamp on the under side of the plate around the center barrel.

Bushings and mounting screws replaced. Found on most pre-war Gibson guitars.
Set 373: 1930s Kluson strip tuners for solid head stock. Buttons are replaced with perfect repros, this set has the “Kluson Mfg.

All parts and plating in excellent condition cosmetically and functionally. 1 3/8” post spacing, barrel diameter of .248”, 12:1 turning ratio, 4 ¼” plate length. Mounting screws replaced. As of the time of listing I don’t have a proper bushing set for these, but please inquire as a set may show up anytime. Found on most pre-war Gibson guitars.
Set 374: 1950s Waverly strip tuners for slot head or solid head steel string guitar. This set shows a little corrosion on the plates but nothing serious. One or two replaced gears but everything functions as it should. The barrels have been drilled in the center and also at the end, so this set could be used for slot head or solid head mounting. These were found on many Gretsch and Harmony guitars during the 50s and 60s as well as some other brands.
Set 375: 1950s Waverly individual tuners for solid head guitar, these were found on most small body mahogany 14 fret Martin guitars during the 50s as well as some Gretsch instruments of the same era. This set shows a little pitting/dirt on the plating here and there but would likely clean up well if the buyer would like a brighter set. All of the parts are original and in good working and cosmetic order. Barrel diameter of .215”. Original bushings and mounting screws.
Set 377: 1960s Waverly 12 string tuners for slot head as were found on most Martin D-12-20 and some D-12-35 models from the 60s and early 70s. This set has all of its original parts and is functionally good. The plating is in very good condition but the set is a bit dirty, would brighten up very well if cleaned but I am leaving them untouched as some buyers might want the ‘aged’ look. But if your guitar is super clean, these will clean up nicely. Non original mounting screws included.
Set 378: 1930s Waverly strip tuners for solid head guitar with black buttons. These tuners were most commonly found on late 20s and 1930s Gibson L-0 and L-00 models. Cosmetically clean and functionally good, all original parts. 7/32” barrel diameter. No bushings present at the moment, but when you inquire ask about bushings as I may acquire a proper set that could be used with these tuners. Replacement mounting screws.
Set 379: 1970s Grover Rotomatic tuners as were found on 70s Martin D-28, D-28 and other makes/models as well. This set is chrome plated and in excellent condition cosmetically and functionally. Original mounting screws included.
Set 380: 1930s Waverly strip tuners for solid head guitar with off-white buttons. These tuners were most commonly found on late 20s and 1930s Gibson L-0 and L-00 models. Cosmetically clean and functionally good, all original parts and mounting screws. 7/32” barrel diameter. No bushings present at the moment, but when you inquire ask about bushings as I may acquire a proper set that could be used with these tuners.
Set 381: 1920s strip tuners for slot head as were found mostly on Washburn guitars but also appeared on some other brands. These tuners have brass components with off-white buttons, 12:1 turning ratio, 1 3/8” barrel spacing and ¼” barrel diameter. Most likely these were made by Waverly but that’s speculation, though they are very good quality. Original mounting screws included.
Set 382: 1950s Kluson “single line” Deluxe strip tuners as found on most Gibson J-45, J-50, LG series and other acoustic Gibsons of the 1950s. Cosmetically clean and functionally good, original parts and buttons, original mounting screws. No bushings present at the moment, but when you inquire ask about bushings as I may acquire a proper set that could be used with these tuners.
Set 383: : Late 1940s Kluson deluxe strip tuners as found on Gibson J-45 and J-50 guitars, the LG series and others. This set is the “no line” variety, meaning that they have no Kluson marking on the gear cover, neither do these have any patent marking. The no-line variety of this tuner was in use from about 1948 to (I think) about ’51 or ’52. The barrels are brass and ¼” diameter. The off-white buttons are replacements. The plating is in good shape and the tuners function well. I don’t know if I’ve got a set of bushings for these, I will check on request.
Set 384: 1950s Waverly individual tuners for solid headstock with plated buttons as found on many 50s Martin small body instruments (00-18s mostly). The set has all of its original parts including bushings and mounting screws. The barrels are 7/32” and have a 12:1 turning ratio. This is possibly the cleanest set of this type I’ve ever had, and they are functionally good.
Set 385: Late 1920s/30s Waverly tuners for slot head with “fluer de lis” engraving and saw tooth plate ends in nickel. These tuners were most commonly found on National slot head resonator guitars but also were found on some high end Martin slot head guitars (generally rosewood models as opposed to mahogany guitars). This set has the modern gear orientation making them post 1927 or there about. The turning ratio is 12:1 and the barrel diameter 7/32”. The tuners all turn freely and hold tune. All of the parts are original and the plating in excellent condition. The tuner barrels have been drilled with an additional hole up near the end of the barrel, suggesting that someone mounted these on a solid head guitar at some point, but that doesn’t prevent use for slot head. Though the pic seems to show that the sheen of one plate is duller than the other this is a relic of the photograph, both plates are bright and clean. Non original mounting screws included. VERY rare set.
