1950s Kluson Deluxe White Button Spare
ORIGINAL...NOT REPRO !!
Offering for your consideration this RARE spare 50s white button kluson shown in the photos. This is an original nickel plated BASS SIDE , "single line" enclosed kluson with oval white plastic button which is original to 50s Gibson guitars ... J-45, es330 etc. Same tuner found on 50s LP Gold Tops ,Flame Tops, dot 335s etc..tips can be replaced with keystones.. (Bass side means it is for the 4th, 5th and 6th string of the peghead). The tuner is completely ORIGINAL....and it shows appropriate wear. Plating is excellent so it will look just right on that cherished vintage guitar. The tuner is marked "Kluson Deluxe" on single line as shown in the photos. Also marked correctly on plate bottom "PATENT NO" and "D-169400". Tuner is totally operative...i.e. turn the button and the post moves like it should with good drag. No funky bent tuner shaft....turns beautifully true. Listing is for the ONE tuner only as shown. Includes two slotted head nickel plated mounting screws..... Tough item to find when you need one...... no other parts included....just what is shown in the photos. Feels SO good to get that vintage guitar right!!
