View Full Version : Old Regal Ukulele - Need a tuner or tuners

03-12-2013, 03:17 AM
New member, first post. Been lurking for some time. Hello from eastern Indiana! I am an acoustic guitar player. My baby is a D28 Martin. It is a wonderful guitar. For a few years I have stored away an old ukulele in my closet. It was my grandmother's uke. The ukulele in question was made by Regal in Chicago. It is missing the washer and screw from one tuner. The rest of the ukulele seems to be in pretty good shape. I have already purchased some Aquila strings for this soprano uke, per the recommendations of folks at the Unofficial Martin Guitar Forum. Great people!

Is there anywhere that I can get a replacement tuner or possibly just the washer and screw for it? I would not be adverse to buying a set of four new tuners if I have to. I am pretty much a neophyte when it comes to the ukulele. I really appreciate everyone's time and potential help. Thanks!
