Just bought this Gibson banjo and surprisingly it had these tuners attached to the peghead.

How do I properly/safely remove these D tuners? I don't want to keep/use them. No instruction paper in the banjo case. Especially no tiny little Allen/hex key to loosen those little bitty screws in the top face.

Can anyone advise? If it calls for the Allen/hex key, what size do I need?

These D tuners will be for sale once I get them off the peghead.

Thanks in advance.

Remove the white tuner buttons from the back, and then unscrew the black shafts under them. The back plate will come off and the rest of the assembly will lift off the front. They’re called Cheat A Keys and they’re very nice ??

Thank you Luke.

These are indeed quite nice, but I just don't care for the looks and how they turn in the same direction.

Curious, since I'm not allowed to buy any more banjos, what kind of Gibson did you get, Dick?
