Check out the tuners on this old Martin soprano. The buttons look like 40s/50s Keystones, but what the heck is going on with the tuner posts and additional hardware up there? Yikes!

 
That's, uh, novel…
 
Yikes. From the front of the headstock, the added hardware looks something like Keith banjo tuners (used to quickly “bend” to/ from G and D in trick tunes such as “Earl’s Breakdown”). No idea how that would be useful on a Martin uke. Just a mess.
