Weak stock buttons & screws "BEGONE!!!" Replaced by jumbo strap buttons of my own design, real fur felt washers, secured by big, fat, deep, grabby screws.
I mean gibson deluxe tuners. I bought 2 new guitars since 2018. 1 with deluxe and 1 with grovers. The deluxe tuners worked better than the grovers. Modern deluxe aren't like the ones from the 50-60s.2 reasons. Traditional look of the kluson keystone buttons. And from the 2 guitars i have the klusons worked better (the ones that come standard on gibson, I assume they are kluson). The grovers that came standard were not as smooth.
The ratio is much higher now than it used to be.Modern deluxe aren't like the ones from the 50-60s.
The old reputation is no longer valid.
Personally, I just find that the headstock gets a little busy looking with the extra script.Why do so many of you switch to the plain black truss covers?
More vintage looking?
