Question Center distance of 7str UV tuners?

Anyone knows what the Centre to centre distances of the Tuners on the 7-String UV are?

Re: Center distance of 7str UV tuners?

Do you mean the distance along the line the tuners are in? I could take a measurement if you want. However if you are going to use it to make a headstock you would have to be very careful to get the angle of the line just right. In that case it might be better to draw lines where the strings are going to be (perfectly parallel of course), then draw a line along the upper edge of the headstock, and put the tuners at the points where the lines intersect.

Cheers

By the way, I make that about 24 mm, give or take a few tenths depending on where I measure.

And I was wrong: the tuners should not be at the intersection points but up a little so the strings go straight from the nut to the circumference of the tuner.

To get the Strings right: What is the distance from the high to low string at nut?
