Hey guys, I want to change the tuners on my Epiphone Acoustic. Right now they are just Grover Rotomatic 14:1 tuners with the bean shaped heads. I really want to get some keystone shaped heads but I don't want to give up the modern Grovers. Any attractive tuners that would be interchangable without doing anything to the head stock? Thanks!

you want the classic Gibby keystone tuner look?
dunno what exactly your looking for but Gotoh is considered to be the best standard tuners for acoustics. i put Gotoh's 510 tuners on all of my guitars... even the GS minis. you will need to drill a very small pilot hole though..easy enough to do. just put some tape at the area that you dont want to drill past on the drill bit. you wouldn't think that a simple tuner change would make much difference but with these babies, you can really dial in the tuning. plus they stay in tune much better than stock tuners.

oh... and there are tons of companies that sell replacement tuner buttons for the Gotohs so you can add some real style to them with bloodwood, maple, ebony or tons of other wood buttons.
