c 1954 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop Kluson "Keystone" tuner Button, single ring, ORIGINAL issue... NO Rot, or shrinkage...  Read more...
Has turned into a GORGEOUS aged amber color... BUT!!!... Here's the deal: Tip of tuner shaft looks broken off, and needs to be drilled out...( I am not POSITIVE of this, but "think" so...) ANY competent properly equipped Machine shop can safely clamp and carefully drill it out But HAVE IT DONE....it would only cost a few $$$ to do...this is not Brain surgery... Selling "AS IS" and if you mess it up, ZERO return policy on this item. If you have a rotting, shrinking button on your old Les Paul, here is your chance to put it back to 100% and STILL stock. YES, it makes a big difference on Value... A "No issue" button like this runs $100.00 now...sell this as is, cheap...
