Perhaps, especially for a long-neck Ode

With just a little more tweaking you could probably fly it to the moon.

Home-made, clever, DIY -- and they work, I bet. I like them.

Although I agree that these are probably homemade and clever, seeing those broken strings tangled up in there, I have to question whether they actually work.

They work smooooth as silk. It hasn't been set up in ages. Need to replace a few parts on a tuner and get rid of the old strings. Just posted pics for a giggle.

Ingenuity. Not being bothered by economy, minimalism and efficiency. Git 'er done!

From the Rube Goldberg School of Design

It’s probably just me, but I’d be embarrassed to have those on my banjo. Definitely overengineered!

Some find beauty in ugliness.

Maybe some vintage Bakelite amber tuners would wrap it all together.

I think it is an improvement to that Ode peghead design.

You wouldn't have any trouble finding the levers mid-tune, that's for sure :-)!
