Aloha

Post by Peter Frary » Tue Aug 22, 2017 9:11 am

Howdy folks, my name is Peter Frary and I'm a musician from the balmy Kingdom of Hawaii. I'm an active YouTuber, like long walks on the beach, drink black coffee and dabble in landscape photography. Any who, I came here because I read a discussion on tuning heads with 36mm roller spacing and, yep, I need a set for a beloved 1992 Douglas Ching. I'm not sure why he designed it with 36mm Rodgers but the guitar is great albeit the tuners are toast. About 20 years ago I replaced the heads on my 1965 Ramirez 1A with a set of Gotohs with 36mm rollers and, after all these years, they still look and work perfectly. Anybody know of a dealer carrying Gotohs with 36mm roller spacing? Or perhaps another "affordable" brand (i.e., under a couple Benjamins).
