Stumbled on this.  If anybody is looking for vintage tuners it's worth a gander thru the inventory.

Disclaimer, I have no knowledge of the luthier.  Just stumbled onto the website.

StewMac carries a line of vintage style tuners now. Called Golden Age tuners. The reviews I've read have been positive.

Nogin,
Those Vintage style tuners from StewMac are very good.  I installed those on my Washburn/Lyon and Healy parlor.  They look period correct and work well.

Good heads up Keel. I got a set of the original gotoh wafflebacks for my D66 from Steve. The previous owner yanked 'em and sold it with grovers.

Sweet.  Those look really good.  Did the grovers not work well, or did you just want to return to originals?
