~1950 Grover Archt. Short Tailpiece

$95
I’ve seen these before and they’re rare. Possibly as old as the 1930s, no way to prove it either way, and extremely solid with beautifully cast cross-bar; have seen this exact one on myriads of types of earlier Grover tailpieces, including those made for Martin. Bail ends crimped, no loose nuts to worry about. Beautiful old-time heavy nickel plating. $95

~1950 Grover Archt. Short Tailpiece

$95
I’ve seen these before and they’re rare. Possibly as old as the 1930s, no way to prove it either way, and extremely solid with beautifully cast cross-bar; have seen this exact one on myriads of types of earlier Grover tailpieces, including those made for Martin. Bail ends threaded, one nut missing, looks like an 8-32 or 6-32 thread to me and should be easy to replace. Beautiful old-time heavy...

~1990 National Strip Set "No Markings"

$150
Most unusual and quite humorous in our book, this never-used set, acquired from the National company probably in the 1990s. For a slotted-peghead guitar, intended as replacements for older and all other Nationals; someone must’ve ordered them from their maker to have no markings on them, and so the words “NO MARKINGS” were stamped onto the ends of both plates. Intentional? Who knows, but they’re...

~1950 Kluson Deluxe 1-Line Strip Set

$200
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a set of these that were originally gold-plated, on or off a guitar (maybe on a 1950s National?), but here they are. Plating somewhat faded for a very cool original vintage look; 1-line KLUSON DELUXE gear covers; worm shafts supported on both ends; buttons thankfully and neatly replaced. The shafts are unusually tight and smooth-opreating. $200

~1980 Asian Solid Head Strip Set w/Bushings

$65
I’ve seem these used on many American-made guitars, including quite a number of Guild acoustics in the 1970s-80s. Standard spacing for zillions of American instruments, they’re quite nice, definitely better than a lot of the import stuff I see today. All six bushings included. $65

1930 Waverly Slot Head Strip Set

$199
Well it sure looks like an original Waverly slot-head set from the 1930s and it is, except….one side has the Fleur-de-Lys pattern impressed on it and the other doesn’t, musta been put together by someone who was trying to match up an original set functionally, dint really care about the looks too much and neither will anyone else at this price. Or maybe you’ve already got one side or the other to...

1932 Waverly National Style 0 Tuner Set

$195
These came from a 1932 National Style 0 guitar and they’re extremely cool. Typical top-grade Waverlys of the day with decorative rolled edge pattern on the backplates, and one unusual aspect: the worm on the 3rd-string-post is reverse-direction. Real close inspection reveals about the best field repair I’ve ever seen on a set of tuning machines, ever. Some very clever metal mechanic/worker, years...

~1950 Waverly (?) Diamond Back Treble Tuning Machine

$49
Ok, all you tuning machine geeks out there, you tell me. Looks like Waverly but could easily be a terrific copy and if so, European form the looks of it, far too nicely done to be from, er, somewhere else. Nine diamonds stamped on the cover, no other markings; perfect 7/32” dia. post. Yours for $49

~1950 European Engraved Classical Set

$95
Most unusual and unusually fine, the plates on these appear to be truly hand-engraved with floral and leaf patterns, not the usual roller-die stampings, indicating a much higher quality of tuning machine overall. 2-29/32” spacing (metric equivalent?); one roller slightly cracked but quite usable. Can someone out there identify these for me? $95

~1940 Kluson Treble Strip

$150
A nearly impossible one to match when you need one, a very early Kluson treble-side strip for solid peghead with KLUSON MFG CO CHICAGO ILL clearly stamped on the front of the plate around one of the central screw-mounting holes, and PAT 8122700 (though the numerals are unclear) stamped around another central screw-mounting hole.

$75
From the period when the Japanese were truly getting their machining together, all those very hot Yamaha racing motorcycles and all, a slot-head side-mount set for steel-string guitar with American 2-3/4” spacing, the word JAPAN proudly stamped on the back of each plate. Nice and tight and smooth, appear to be barely ever used if at all. $75

~1960 Waverly Strip Set Nickel Plated

$195
This set may be from as early as the 1950s, as so many of the Waverly tuners from the 1960s with metallic-looking buttons turn out to have metallized-plastic ones. Not here; this is a top-flight set from Waverly, with solid brass nickel-plated buttons and posts and brass gears with blued center screws. Unusually tight, and complete with all six original hex-head bushings and all eight mounting...

~1950 European Archtop Bridge

$75
Yow! Who designs these things? Only people we can think of ever got into this kind of mechanical complexity and downright accuracy on guitar parts were the Germans and the Swedes, in the 1950s, though we could be wrong. Fabulous Brazilian rosewood construction with the sturdiest nickel-plated steel sideplates I’ve ever seen, plus enough accurate-looking little screw heads to adjust the saddle...

~1960 Gibson Archtop Guitar Bridge Bases (Brazilian)

It never ceases to amaze me, the stuff that’s still turning up in our shop. We have here two Brazilian rosewood archtop guitar bridge bases from the 1960s, both with iconic Gibson cutout on their undersides for flexibility. One has had blind post-holes drilled partway down with the tiniest chip at the edge of one hole; the other remains still undrilled. Both exceptionally clean, ready to bring...
