Meh. No biggie. It's just a tuning key. It's cheap and easy to replace.

Not to be an ass, but really, you shouldn't leave a guitar like that sitting outwhere it can be knocked over. Technically, you bear as much responsibility as your mom.

But I will conceed that Gibson tuners suck ass. They break really easy and aren't all that accurate. YOU'd figure they could put better tuners on a guitar that costs that much.

Replace the tuner then get a better stand. Oh, and make your mum pay for it.

Then don't be so stupid again!

Hm..you'd think that Gibson would get smart and put some quality tuners on their guitars that cost so much...But no. Not only do they rip you off and make you pay for the Gibson name, they give you POS tuners with it.

I hated those plastic knobed Klusons on the LP Studio I used to have really junky considering I paid $800 in 1993 for it.

I don't get why they don't put some nice Grovers on them or something...even $300 Washburns have Grovers. So do most Epiphones.

Its because they are trying to give it the vintage look with the tulip style tuners that stick out 8inches and are made of toothpicks and a plastic thingy.

I'd rather have plain ol' non vintage looking Grovers than POS Gibson "vintage" tuners that break if you look at them wrong.

As for the Washburns, I haven't tried any $200 range Washburns lately, so I didn't realise they had Grovers two.

I had the same thing happen to me with my SG . Mine was being used by a drunk friend, he swung, and nailed it off a wall thus breaking the tuner [they were some old Grover's in need of replacement, but he didn't kow that]. He offered to buy me some replacements, so I just picked up some of the stock Deluxe Gibson tuner's they put on their SG's... I honestly tune my guitar maybe once every 3-4 days, it barely ever goes out of tune .

I might not own a gibson, in fact i've never even played a gibson (i've played an epiphone though :p) but for saying that they're one of the most famous brands around that they would've had more fans, you all seem to hate gibsons i dont like les pauls as much as some guitars but i still like gibsons all in all, i wouldnt buy one, i'd prefer and esp or something.

we dont hate the guitars that gibson makes. we hate the compnay for being overpricey and selfish bastards. it doesnt take much to produce a quality les paul(look at agile and tokai) but gibson sells them for a fortune. thats why most people hate gibson.

Whhhhhhhhhhhy though? It's so childish to bash a company purely based on the fact you think it's overpriced. Look, you can find good deals. I got my SG for $200 and the only upgrades it needed were some tuners and volume/tone knobs.

What teh ****? They're just tuners.

If you do something like make your mom pay for it.. next time you want some money for the movies you might have to pay for it yourself I'm sure his mother didn't pick his guitar up and throw it, therefore, I'm fairly certain she doesnt/shouldn't have to pay for it. His parents probably bought it for him anyway.

yah i picked up a gibson lespaul standard and played it for an hour in my store. It just sounded like the basic lespaul sound everyone hears and wants. Im still looking forward with a custom gibson lespaul this winter. Its nothing special its like having a tool and saying to your friends, " i have the legends of all rock'n'roll guitars in my house" I would been proud to have one of those to show how much this guitar made a difference during time. Well anyways lespauls are versatile but still has that "typical" lespaul sound.

I aint hating, but loving.

I don't hate Gibson. I dislike Gibson, but I don't hate Gibson. Their guitars are very overpriced thanks to the name, and they STILL use cheap things-like these tuners for instance.
If something comes on a $200 Washburn, something much better should come on a Gibson. Not something WORSE.

And to the guy who said that the Gibson tuners stay in tune for 3 or so days; So what? My $150 Washburn's tuners stay in tune for a week. And even then they're only off slightly. They aren't anything special, just normal no-name tuners. The tuners on a Gibson SG should be better than the tuners on my $150 Washburn. But you know what? They aren't.

What I don't like about Gibson is that you aren't paying for quality. You're paying for the name.

Im sure the tuner could break on any guitar if u were a dumbass and dropped it on the floor (not calling threadstarter a dumbass ) Fragile tuners arent a problem if u dont smash them on anything... Im not trying to preach Gibson or anything, but obviously theyre doing something right if they can charge over 2 grand for their guitars and still have people buy them

Not to bash on the threadstarter, but I would think that if u were going to spend $1000+ on a guitar, you would be more careful with it, starting with buying a halfway decent stand..
