    I have a 1996 Epiphone LP that has one bent tuning peg (happens to be the D string, typically one of two that takes the biggest beating). I actually really like the tuners, so I don't want to replace the rest of them simply because of the one bent one. Surely, plenty of folks HAVE replaced them, though, and so there should be plenty of perfectly good, used tuners floating around in parts drawers? I'm obviously not searching correctly. Help?

    If they're stock for that year you're probably looking at something like this?

    If so there should be lots of options quite similar but not likely a 100% matching part available especially as a single unit unless someone here has one to offer.

    Although OP hasn't said if they are Grovers or Klusons.....

    This style does look to be more fragile to bending than the all metal Grovers I see....

    Based on the model year I would expect the Kluson-type with push-in bushings. Grovers weren't standard until later on afaik.

    Yep, the Kluson-type like you pictured. The single one on ebay looks a little more "greenish" than the keys on my guitar. Maybe just replacing all is the way to go. :\ Just seems like there HAD to be some floating out there!

    How about replacing all of them with the 'little more "greenish"' ones, and saving the 5 good ones for an emergency replacement? That way they will all look the same, if that's a concern.

    Just a thought.
