SwedishLuthier Posted July 7, 2010 Report Share Posted July 7, 2010 I have a really beat up old Hagstrom BJ12 or possible H33 12-stringer in for restoration (maybe should have put this in the acoustic section...). The body were cracked, the neck block (screw attachment!) were dislocated by "excessive external force" and there are no less than 6 holes in the top after controls for built in pickups. Those things can be handled. However the tuners are beyond salvage. So I need to find new tuners that fit. The thing is that the post spacing (outer post center to outer post center) is 115mm/4.5276" and they are of the "6 on a plate" version. I would really like to keep the original appearance and stay with that look, but can't seem to find proper replacement tuners. I have even tried calling the Hagstrom museum here in Sweden and they could "only" provide me with a NOS sound hole pickup (OK two holes are fixed then, only four left to handle...) Does anyone know were to get tuners that will fit? I have tried Stewmac, Allparts, evilbay but I still have not been able to find anything. So some help here would really be appreciated.
