'79 Raven tuners
« on: June 26, 2009, 07:48:39 PM »
I'm about to get a '79 Raven in a trade and I may want to replace the tuners.  Anyone know of any that will use the same size headstock holes?  I'm not concerned if the screw holes don't line up, I just don't want to have to bore out the mounting holes.  I'm hoping something at guitarfetish.com will fit.

Whatever may replace these:

Hi
Sorry, can't help on replacement tuners but sure someone on here will know.
Can I ask- does the Raven have a serial number anywhere? (I've got an early Raven but haven't been able to date it)

Thanks Jeff, so Schallers will fit with no prob?

Norfolkin - I should be picking up the Raven tomorrow, and I'll let you know if it has a serial number.

I believe that axe to be Matsumoku made.
Tuners are the same as for earlier low end Arias asf.
These actualy work pretty good,but as noted if you want to replace them regardless Shaller M6s works just fine.

As for serials,some do some don´t.
Pre 80 Uncle Mats don´t always carry them.

Yeah, I guess I'll see how the tuners perform before I decide.  If they're stiff or anything, I'll try oiling them.  Heading out to make the trade today! I'll be posting pics soon!
