So I have a 1999 Martin D-15 that was just given to me by an uncle. A picture of it can be found here.

I'm really pleased to be the new owner and I was hoping of doing a little custom work to it. The Martin butterbean tuners have always have caught my eye and I personally really like their look. The idea has come into my head to buy them and put them on the D-15 I just got. Obviously this is purely for looks alone, trying to jazz it up a bit Personally, I think it would be a great little addition to this great new guitar I have. What are your thoughts?

I would prefer to spend the money on things that would improve sound/playability, such as a bone nut and saddle, in addition to a good setup. By the way, that's an incredibly nice uncle you have there. I hope you expressed your gratitude appropriately.

if you like the tuners, get the tuners!

just out of curiousity, what kind of pickup is that?
#7
Where would you suggest purchasing the bone nut and saddle? I would like to purchase them online around the same time I'm purchasing the butterbean tuners so I can have my local guy install everything at one time.

The pickup is a Fishman Rare Earth Blend Soundhole Pickup, its sounds wonderful.
