    Default Schaller Double tab tuners

    Hey guys,

    just recently let go of my Shark Destroyer (gonna miss it) however I just aquired a new Shark Destroyer from my buddy Dave Nesdal as my new and improved version. My good friend Nick (Mr Bond) is responsible for this build so its one of the best ones I have ever seen no doubt and I'm excited to pick her up next week however the only thing that is not totally accurate is the tuners are not "double tabs" like Ed's were. They are schallers 3 chrome and 3 gold with big heads however they dont have the double tabs. I was able to find one chrome schaller double tab tuner but that was used for my new 5150 Kramer 7th tuning peg version.

    Nick I know you have them on yours but where the heck do you find these Schaller double tab tuners? I gotta throw these on my new Shark to make it perfect....

    thanks guys,

    Rob

    I picked up a set of chrome double tabs about 5 months ago on ebay, so they're out there...

    If you find a set of gold turners, let me know... Maybe we can do some trading...

    Thanks for the kind words Rob!! That one is a great axe!!

    I swiped mine after looking for months, and months on ebay. The gold ones are the ones that took all that time, I'm sure you know the chrome ones do pop up fairly often on ebay. It's the gold ones that are the problem, and then you need to worry about if they have the bigger tuning buttons. I've never seen any with the big ones, and they're a bitch to swap out!! Keep looking for sure. I only know of 4 sets ever found recently, and I found three of them lol. I still have 3 in lefty so let me know if you know anyone who picks up a lefty shark hahaha. If I find them myself I'll let you know!

    I actually found my first set in Australia!

    sounds good Nick.... I actually came up with a great idea yesterday. I am picking my new Shark (Dave's) on Wednesday so check this out.

    I have 3 gold and 3 chrome extra schallers kicking around so yesterday I took some pliers an snapped off the tabs carefully without breaking them and then ground the snapped edge down so it was smooth..... now when I get the guitar I will just butt them up tight against the tuner and put a screw in it and it will look exactly like a double tab tuner.... This is gonna work perfect and won't cost me a penny lol

    I came up with this idea yesterday morning and its gonna work perfect.

    That's really cool, and I just watched the Sunday video hangout/chat with you and Johnny B., where you talked about this...

    Oh yeah, have fun at the fair!
