    Default Can anyone help me find these?

    Okay-
    First off, I love my Les Paul, however, I HATE the Gibson Tuners I have on the Paul. A few weeks back, I was in the local guitar shop, and I saw an AWESOME set of Machine Heads on a Les Paul. They had the Tulip shape, and I believe they were Gibson, Shaller, or Grover...but what was slick about them was they had string winders "built-in" to them-they fold out of the tuning peg. If ANYONE can give me info on getting these (PLEASE, don't point me to the Mighty Mite ones), it would be appreciated! -Red43j
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    I saw these on a silverburst Les Paul yesterday and if they are the same ones I saw, then I believe gibson made them for Les Paul Customs. I have seen a few other guitars on ebay with the and they have all been Les Paul Customs.

    I had a Les Paul Custom that had those. Early to mid 80s I believe. I bought the guitar for $400 used and traded it 4 days later for a mixing board. It was nice to look at but it WAS an early to mid 80s piece of 'wood' with Gibson on the headstock. A piece of shit actually...
    As for the machines; I don't think the idea was very good. The mechanism had to be loose to use the little handle thingy. A loose machine head is an inaccurate machine head.
