Vox part number 09-114-0. Ferule (eyelet) part 09-116-0. Open gear tuner, six on a plate. This tuner was fitted to numerous lower-end UK-built guitar models produced at the JMI plant in Dartford, circa 1963-67: the Clubman
and Super Ace
. Note earlier examples of these instruments were typically fitted with 3 per side plate tuners, or individual open gear units. Plate has a length of 153mm x 15mm, and a 6mm post diameter. Plate attached to the headstock with seven mounting screws.
These tuning keys are very similar to the closed gear, metal-button tuning keys used on high end guitars around the same time. They shared the same posts, gears, mouting screws and base plate. The footprint, post spacing (and therefore the required headstock holes) were identical, meaning any neck drilled for one set of keys, could be fitted with either.
