Hey all,

I know this has been asked long ago, but J.Davis Music and Mr. Keith are no longer around so I don't know where to find ivoroid tuner buttons that fit Keith D tuners anymore.

Anyone know of a store/person that has these? Or could possibly make them?

Thanks!

My goodness I must be blind or dumb (or both), I must have gone through Boyd's site 4 times over the last week! 

 

Thank you for this

They're great. I have a pair. I believe they're Schaller buttons.

When I bought mine about 5 or 6 years ago, I needed to include with my order the standard round head stainless screws since Greg Boyd did not at the time make buttons cut for Keith tuners' large head button screw.

Now he sells such "fly cut" buttons, that I assume he cuts in his own shop.  So before you order, I suggest you write to Greg through his website to ask if he can fly cut the ivoroid buttons to accommodate the thumbscrew.

Remember to choose "splined" from the drop-down menu.

Individual buttons end up costing around $12 each, but what else are you going to do with your money these days?

Hmmm.  I wonder if I can send my plain top buttons back to him to fly cut for the Keith screw.

Old Hickory,

I totally agree..what's 12 beans to make some $200 dollar Rickard 10:1s match the even more expensive Keith tuners on 2 and 3, haha
