Kluson Deluxe

Kluson 303-V strip tuners - as fitted to a Gibson guitars throughout the 1960s

Kluson Deluxe

Gibson index > Gibson parts > tuning keys Closed gear strip tuning keys. The Kluson 303-V differs from the 301-V by having nickel plated key posts; they are unplated on the 301-V. The missing strip clearly shows the four post-holes and the position of the four screws that hold these tuners in place. The guitar pictured is one of the last Melody Maker guitars built in 1969 (more pictures), with just one (of two) Kluson Deluxe tuners fitted. Higher-end models tended to have individual machine heads, rather than three (or six) on a strip. Postholes have an approximate diameter of 7.4 mm.
