Gibson used a lot of Schaller machine heads, and the M-6 (Gibson part number part 82506) was one of the most widely used models, appearing on numerous SG, Les Paul and ES guitars. There were some variations over time, most notably in the shape of the button, the shape of the gear cover, the emblem on the cover (Gibson in this case) and the position of the screw tab. This typical seventies three-a-side set is shown mounted on a mid 1976 Gibson L-6S Custom electric guitar - attached with just one screw per machine head.
