Tuners for Gibson Vintage, Historic, or USA Models • Absolute Vintage Collection • LIX Patina Nickel Kluson Single Ring, Single Line (1956–1959 Style)
This is a set of genuine Kluson single-ring tuners in our LIX Patina finish. LIX is the Roman numeral for 59. Even though these tuners are brand new, they have the look of well-worn pieces from that era.
Gibson chose the single-ring, single-line Klusons as the original tuners on the late 50s Les Pauls. Over the years, Les Pauls have come equipped with all sorts of tuners, but the look of the classic Klusons is timeless.
The set includes bushings and screws. These standard bushings are the original size and fit headstocks with smaller key holes.
For those of you who are replacing a set of Grovers or other tuners that require a larger key hole, we offer an optional upgrade to our aged adapter bushings. These awesome bushings have a wide flange to cover the indentations left on the headstock by the finishing washers of larger tuners, giving your headstock a vintage appearance that is a great improvement over hex heads found on modern tuners. The photos of the Les Paul headstocks show these adapter bushings.
