    Best Replica Kluson Tuners?

    I'm wondering who makes the best Replica Kluson's that don't slip. The ones that came on my ML R-9 suck!! I don't want to install Grovers as my ML doesn't need the added low end or sustain. I'd like to find some that look like Kluson's, but that work better & turn smoother.. Thanks!!

    Kluson's..Who makes the best ones?

    I was wondering what Kluson reproductions are the best overall? I have issues with the ones on my ML R-9 as they slip alot. I don't want to go the Grover route as these are just fine. They just don't stay intune. The only reason I switch to Grovers is if they don't help the sustain. Thanks!!

    Wizz w/Replica Wire

    Has anyone here tried the new Wizz pickups with his replica wire. He had some original wire destroyed and analyzed and then duplicated. Just wondering the tonal difference? I’ve always thought that the wire was the last thing to duplicate. Everyone one has magnets, keeper bars, screws, base...

    T-Tops vs. Wizz vs. Monty's

    So I'm trying to decide which set to put in my R-9 Murphy Lab. The Custombuckers are just o.k., a bit muffled in the mids. I've got a set of late `60's T-Tops that I put ThroBak A-4 magnets in with ThroBak covers. I really like the A-4's in T-Tops and discovered this combo a few years ago. But...

    Section for Sixties Epiphone?

    Is there a section here for Sixties Kalamazoo made Epiphones? I know there was a separate board for Epiphones that someone started about 10 years ago, but it doesn’t look like anyone has posted anything in a couple of years. I just got a 1965 Al Caiola Custom. The serial number info on that...
