Overall Comments

I picked up a hand crafted banjo by the late Willie Huff recently. Seems he had put Schaller tuners on it. One of them seemed to just spin in the hole instead of the gears turning.. worked like a friction peg. But I took it out of the headstock, and instead of seeing the wood in the back of the headstock being chipped out letting the tuner spin in the hole, the sections of the tuner body were slipping. In other words the gears were not turning, the body wasn't spinning on the wood, but the parts of the tuner had let go of each other. I was at least happy to see the wood was fine, but these are the first Schallers I've had and they are going away as fast as I can say Gotoh.
