    Hi, I have a 1975 les Paul custom, with original waffleback tuners. Does someone have an idea what radius I should look for in a replacement tuner?

    Do you mean the turning ratio?

    I think they are 15:1

    Take a string off and count the number of turns of the knob it takes to achieve one full turn of the post. :doh:
    You're Welcome! :cheers2:

    Replace with whatever you want. Just because it was put on in the factory doesn't mean the makers somehow had some perfect knowledge of precisely the right part to put on.

    So that number means that? Always thought it was the drilled hole diameter, radius or something...

    In that case I do not care much about the number of turns, provided it is something reasonable.

    Thanks!

    Hmmm, could be there is a bit of confusion about terms used. :)

    To me sounds you were asking about the diameter of the bushing, which is 11/32" (.346"/8.79mm).

    I think that also, and radius/diameter was the correct term......brother wants to know the hole size so he can order replacements without having to drill his head-stock.

    Yeah, sorry folks. I was responding to chasenblues' assumption that "paco1976" was referring to the ratio. :doh: Radius is indeed a valid aspect of the diameter of the required holes in the headstock. At least now, the OP understands both aspects! :cheers:
