SawDust_Junkie Posted January 30, 2006 Report Share Posted January 30, 2006 Does anyone here know where to purchase Jin Ho tuners ? These tuners are made in by Jin Ho Music instruments in Korea. I believe they also manufacture Wilkinson tuners. I have a Takamine Jasmine TS38C that has two broken tuners. One left and one right. The original tuners used on this guitar are the Jin Ho JC-01 if I remember correctly. I found the company's web page last weekend at home, but for some reason, I can't get to it from here at work. These tuners are almost identical to Schaller Mini M6s, but the dog ear where the small screw mouts the tuner to the back of the headstock is silghtly diffrent. On the Schallers, the dog ear is straight or perpindicular to the body of the tuner, on the Jin Ho tuners the dog ear is at an angle. If I try to replace the existing tuners with the Schallrs mini M6s or even the ones Grizzly sells (which are identical to Schallers) i will have to drill new holes for the wood screw on the back of the head stock. I would rather no have to do this if I don't have to, and the guitar will still be all original if I can find the same tuners used by the manufacturer. I called the local Guitar Center and the guy there was supposed to check with Takamine and get back to me, but I have not heard from him since. I'm going to call him back, but I thought I would see if anyone here knows where they can be purchased at. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
