I quit post PSA's long ago, but people have been looking, and these are getting scarce.

These are NOT inexpensive.... But if you are restoring Ancient Ovations you may need them.

These tuners have a plastic chassis and were mounted back in the 80s on lesser guitars, the cheap Schaller M6 copies. These tuners were not even good when theay were new. Due to the normal ageing of any plastic material (becomes brittle and tends to shrink) I would not use these any more, it´s waste of money. Vintage or not, you would not drive a vintage car with vintage tyres, would you?

I guess opinions are welcome but DetlefMichel these are the replacement tuners for the early Viper and Breadwinner guitars. While the plastic doesn't really stand the test of time, if need replacement tuners, these are them. These are the OEM version of the ones Ovation used. The ones Ovation used have the Ovation logo instead of the Schaller logo. The offset mount makes it nearly impossible to replace with anything else. The logos are swapable.
