Chrome tele knobs on Mustang

Recommended Posts


I've agreed to buy a leftie Mustang and am just waiting on the Ishibashi paypal thing to pay and get it shipped.

I saw a pic of this mustang - http://www.guitarsandeffects.com/guitar ... ij_003.jpg - and it looks like it's got Chrome knobs, prob from a Tele. I really like the combo and was thinking of getting some to put on the Mustang when it arrives.

I'm a complete noob to this stuff so was wondering if there's any issues there? I presume they're just the same metal tuners with knobs on top but I wanted to just check first to make sure there's no issues!

Not all tuners will work. You have to make sure the screw holes match up. Unless you want to drill new holes in your headstock. I just replaced the white buttoned tuners on my 65 RI with chrome ones. They had to be the F stamped tuners with the diagonal screw holes. The kind of tuners off a 69 RI wouldn't have fit. They have the screw holes straight across from one another in the middle of the tuners.
