So, a while ago my guitar fell off the stand and off came the tuning peg. I have no idea how to fix this, I'd take it to a professional but the closest one is is 50 miles away and just botched a job on my best friend's bass. Can anyone tell me I could fix this on my own? Would I have to buy a replacement set? What's the deal? Here are some pictures...

^what he said.
They're really easy to replace, unscrew the old one, screw on the new one, done!

Yep a single replacement tuner should do. Those are kluson tuners (or at least kluson style). So look for kluson replacements. Make sure to get the correct side! Then of course it's merely a matter of unscrewing the old one and screwing the new one on. Always be sure to use a properly sized screwdriver, these little tuner screws are easy to strip out.
