    I would appreciate any advice on replacing the tuners on my 1966 Es-335. I bought some grovers off e-bay and was told they would fit all Gibsons. The new tuner shafts were too wide on would not fit in the holes, but the screw holes matched. Of course I would not widen the holes. Any advice on a model, style, or brand? I don't want new screw holes, I'd like to match the old ones. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Gotoh makes an exact replacement for your guitar.

    Don't put the Grovers or Schallers on there, unless you want 'em.;)

    er, sorry-

    TK 0770-001 in nickle,
    TK 0770-002 in gold.

    ALLPARTS (713) 466-6414

    provided they're original, these will replace what's on there (if memory serves)

    I went with Locking Tulip Gotoh's for my 330 w/ Bigsby and have been quite happy with them. I've had a set of normal Gotoh's on my '67 335 for 16+ years with no issues (the originals are in storage and a few were bent up pretty good so...).

    Happy Playing!
