Kluson®'s reissued Firebird/Banjo tuning machines for Gibson® Firebird®! Staying true to the design in virtually every aspect using planetary gears with a 12:1 ratio (wind rate = to 14.6:1 ratio), the exact mounting screw pattern, housing size and appearance with the 5/16 inch string post. Because these tuning machines have a larger string post they do require the original larger peg hole which is very similar in size to what is used for modern diecast tuning machines.

The T and B on the bottom plates depict treble or bass side and are only visible when tuning machine is not installed. Available in gold, nickel and chrome plating in sets of 6 in line or individually as listed here.
