  1. Gibson reverse Firebird V specs shows “Tuners: Mini Grovers”. Should be “Tuners: Inline Banjo type”. Original ’63 models were by Kluson.

    If anyone out there knows for certain the diamtert of the hole that receives the tuning peg, please pass that along to me. Thanks


  2. I’m having a frustrating time trying to get a fit between a new set of firebird tuners and the peghead on a ’64 reverse that i recently found (without tuners). Near as I can tell, the peghead hole is about 10mm (a Steinberger fits in there pretty close, although it’s not quite snug). Problem is, the bushings that came with my set of ‘new’ used firebird tuners are about 7/16″ – just a tad too big, and perhaps too big to jam in those holes. The tuner shaft itself is pretty close to 8mm. So I’m looking for a bushing with a 7/16″ OD and an 8mm ID??
