Clyde -

Rather than take up space here, just log on to Stewart-Macdonald and view their various videos. I saw one a while back on exactly what you need. Good luck. Oh, and another option is to replace them with new tuners - you don't need to trash the old ones, just keep them.

Hey All:


I have a problem with my Silver tone Guitar, I have a couple of the tuning pegs slightly bent and they are getting hard to tune, I tried to talk my wife into changing them last year, but wants to keep it as much original as possible.


Can anyone help me on how to make the tuners loose to tune them comfortable.

that is a spruce top MIniGS beside it. I liked it also. But my collection needs more color.  They had a Koa Baby Taylor...sounded dull to me.

GS Mini's are nice, I just picked up a new fall limited Koa model last month. If you have the availability of trying out different ones at other places, you will find they are inconsistent with setup. You may find one that is perfect, or just ask the store to take care of it. Generally they are very helpful and will fix it for you, sometimes as you wait. Or, they may have a couple more still in the box in storage you can test out?

Spent a hour with this Mahogany Taylor 599cdn$

tried in concert tuning, dropped d and capoed.

Nice tone depth for small body. but buzzed with capo in 5th fret which made me think strange setup.

Welcome to the forum Clyde.

Look forward to seeing the guitar.

I learned on a Silvertone that was my Dad's. I wish I had it now, that was when I was 12 years old.

I want a classic Silvertone.  I also want a classic arch top.  Welcome Clyde.

Hi Clyde

Morning All:


I am new to the forum, but enjoy playing my 1965 3/4 Silvertone acoustic guitar which was my wife's when she was teenager but it is mine now and I play it every chance I get.

I will try and post a picture later.

Happy Strumming
