Vintage style 1 Martin soprano - circa mid 40's to early 50's (identified by the three remaining original Klusen style keystone tuners, which I believe where replaced with possibly Ping Precisions, being as there is no taper on the top of the headstock nor a recess for a bushing). I don't know if the hole has been widened, because I do not know the original width for a Martin of this era. I believe it is about 5/16, at the moment. Anyone know a suitable replacement option? The Pings are terrible and look all wrong. Thanks.
