    Are the spring/hinges hooked at the ends? Does that make them pretty near impossible to remove without taking off the wood??

    UB trapdoor spring broke

    Any one have any experience in replacing one of these. Only one broke and I can't even pull the broken one out. It may be 'locked' under the piece of wood covering it. No one locally has any...

    These are the tuners I'm looking to replace with similar issue. I don't want to expand the holes to put in something like pegheads.
  7. Wanted: Kluson keystone tuners for a late 40s Martin O

    I could make due with one replacement but would prefer to replace all four with better functioning tuners. Mine are tired and one lost a button.
    Thanks, Frets

    It's the first attempt Gibson tried for the Banjo Uke. It's a shorter scale than a tenor, I think. After the UB they brought in a 6" and then an 8".

    Vintage Banjo Uke question

    I'm considering the purchase of a 1924 Gibson UB in very good shape. Is the 9 inch head a disadvantage? I can get it for $600. Any input is welcome. Thanks, Frets in Belfast, Maine USA
