Steel strings? or...
Beautiful top on that guitar!
But be careful - you can't imagine the divot a dropped set of nippers can make in a top. Don't ask me how I know...
Martin Retro monel. 11-52
Gallagher with “fresh wires”?
Why are there nippers there at all, is it string through?
Just what I needed, a reminder to change mine.
I’m changing the strings on my Goodall for an acoustic jam I’m doing mañana.
The tuner end of those strings need to be trimmed.
it has some fine wood for sure
What Goodall model do you have?
They are the best bang for the buck to get stunning tone.
I have owned 7 and still have a couple.
Let us know how your Goodall cuts through the jam!
It’s a Hawaiian era RCJC, though I actually don’t know the year.
It’s the best steel string acoustic guitar I’ve ever owned.
Wouldn't it be nice if they made Fender vintage style SafetiPosts for acoustic 3x3s.
Doh, only thinking of the removal. I'll go back to sleep now.
For a very long time I coiled the tuner ends of the strings. But as I started doing that in the 1960s I figured it either had a nonchalant cool look to it or the coiled ends served as an antenna to draw in aquarian cosmic beams.
They do. Whomever owns the right to the Kluson name these days still offers 3 on a Plate Safeti Post tuners for both slothead and solid headstock Martins, Gibsons and others.
Thanks. I have never seen them. Are they only 3 on a plate? I'll keep looking.
I'm having trouble with strings. Just put a new set on and had a 2.5 hour practice. They are grungy, sticky and discolored. First it was Ernie Balls, next it was Just Strings.
Anyone else experiencing this?
I guess I have to buy a bunch of sets again and trash the stock I have. They sat for 1.5 years in the package.
That is all I have seen but I have never gone out hunting for them as I have a parts box full of Kluson tuners from the 1930s through the 1950s so generally just go with those when I need or want to replace what is on a guitar. But if you think about it there was no difference between acoustic and electric guitars tuners other than Fenders were six on a plate.
