Just acquired a nice Gibson Tenor-probably from the 1940's.
Its in great shape but the tuning buttons have disintregated. Tuners are original nickle-plated brass with springs inside the barrels. I can clean up the tuners if I can find some buttons-I believe these were the 'keystone-shaped' buttons. They have a square hole with a 1/8" square tuner shaft. Got any suggestions? Originals look like the ones on this Gibson:

I'll take complete tuners if you know of some vintage ones. Headstock holes are 5/16" diameter.
