    Double Ring Klusons for R0

    Can the double ring tuners Gibson is puting on their R0's be purchased anywhere? The Klusons that are for sale everywhere are not correct as they have the domed posts. The ones they make for Gibson have flat posts and I have not been able to find them for sale anywhere. Anyone know of a source?

    No idea but good luck in your search. My Sam Ash sells "Historic" parts and currently an on clearance historic stop bar with studs is discounted to a mere $150+tax

    I'll check the tuners next time I'm in there.

    Throback and Creamtone sell them but only in 'aged'. Need them non-aged for my '61 LP/SG Historic

    I believe these are the ones you're looking for.

    Those both look like they're maybe correct, but they don't show pics of the posts. They make them with both domed and flat tops, and it's unclear which are being sold there. Flat tops are the correct ones.

    The ones posted from eBay are domed. WD doesn’t show that view, suspiciously. I spoke with WD seveyyears ago, just after they redesigned the entire Kluson line. They got it almost right except for two things: posts are still domed, bushings are flat not slanted as they should be. They were pissed at me for bringing it up, said “we were lent vintage correct parts by RS guitar, these are correct!”. The conversation ended there

    WD has rights for Kluson in US, not Europe. The US Kluson are made by Ping in Korea

    You can buy Kluson brand from Europe. These are not WD parts...they are made by Gotoh in Japan and have ALL the correct details. Germany has them

    So the single line, double ring, are still domed?

    I have 2 sets of single line, single ring and a set of single line 3 on a plate, that are all flat.

    Could they have changed in the last year or so?

    I know it's not what you're looking for but it looks like the double line, double ring are flat now as well.

    They are on the guitars, we're talking about the Kluson tuners that are sold separately

    Out of curiosity, I looked at the new Kluson tuners [from WD] that I have in stock in my store.
    The set you ask for has a flat top to the post, not domed.
    Pauls to the walls!

    Thanks for confirmation on that. I was pretty sure the set I linked had flat tops, but you can never be too sure. Now if they could only get the ferrules correct...

    To the OP, it's probably best to double check with the seller to confirm which set they will be sending, so no surprises.
