Question Where to buy spare parts for early Gotoh Magnum Lock tuners?

Hi guys,

do you know where to buy replacement parts, i.e. the "top locker bush" through which the string goes, for the early generation Gotoh Magnum Lock tuners?



Apparently these have a different shape than the ones that are currently available and in production. I was told they are incompatible due to a different thread inside, that's why I am looking to get the old version as used on some late 80s Ibanez models.

Any help is gladly appreciated - thanks!

I have 4 ibanez Guitars with these tuners, 2 gold, 1 black, and 1 chrome, and I feel your pain. You can try g-jax.com customer service, ( basically the Gotoh retail store), but there is a bit of a language barrier, and they are on summer vacation until September. They were very helpful with me. The other issue with older Ibbys is the headstock is very thick, and the new standard magnum lock tuners may be too short to use. The two shortest on the staggered version were definitely too short to insert the string into. The gotoh retail store assorted a special set for me even though I didn't purchase the staggered set from them originally. Good luck.

It's a mystery to me why these are so hard to find. I buy my magnum tuners through Australian Luthier Supplies. The turnaround time can be a pain, but they are very helpful and can get you whatever you want. I would give them a shot if you can't find anything locally. http://www.luthierssupplies.com.au/
