That's the one. That's what I was hoping to find.
This all depends on your requirements. Their cheapest Landsdorfer style tuners are about 30€ and the costs should not more than double to have them customized to 39 mm spacing. No engraving, no shafts, no teflon bearing or other thrills but the gear will be identical to the most luxurious designs. There will be noch cheaper source for custom-made tuners than Rubner.
The old Sakura & Kono/Kohno will fit as well.micklerd wrote: ↑Wed May 23, 2018 10:49 pmI need to replace the tuning machines on the headstock. I would like to replace them with as close to the same tuning machines as was used on the original guitar. (Right-hand set is original, left-hand set is not.) The spacing between tuning pegs is 39mm. 99% of tuning pegs made since the mid-1970s use the standard 35mm spacing, and will not fit this guitar. I have only been able to find one set of tuning machines from Gotoh with the 39mm spacing. While functional, they are not at all similar to the original tuning machines.
Anyone have any leads on where I can get a replica of the original tuners? I have already contacted Rubner who will create a custom-made replica...for a third of what I paid for the guitar.
Thanks for posting this!micklerd wrote: ↑Wed May 23, 2018 10:50 pmSHARING: In researching my guitar, I came on the Yamaha Parts List System. The link below takes you to a complete list of Yamaha Grand Concert models produce along with the years they were produced. Clicking on the model number link will take you to the specific page listing all currently available replacement parts. Sadly, few parts are available for the oldest models.

I wish the Yamaha GC archive were still up...
Well noted. Boreholes in wood are never so precise as in metal for instance. These replacment tuners fitted my ´78 Kohno 30 perfectly with negligible offset of the fixation holes. But they are only available with a Lyra style plate, which is not the style Yamaha used and uses for the GC line.
