Vintage Carvin Guitar Question?

Postby gtrplayr1976 » Mon Jun 08, 2020 1:31 pm

Hey folks! Maybe one of you could steer me in the right direction if I'm on the wrong forum? I'm looking for replacement parts for a vintage Carvin. I think they are Klusons ,but I want to be sure to find out exactly what would fit. A friend of mine has it.
Any help appreciated. Thank you!

That upper fret access!!! :)

I'm no expert so others may have actual informaiton...but here's a catalog from 1957 which shows the tuners. it doesn't specify a manufacturer, though...

Thanks spudmunkey. They looks like Kluson ,but I'd be afraid to tell him to get them ,and then they wouldn't fit. He may have to take some measurements to be sure. :D

Are they not working correctly? Try taking them off, soak really good in PBBlaster, work the gears really well, clean up and relube with grease. Maybe this would work.
