Luthiers Dan Erlewine and Carl Ho demonstrate how to replace tuners on a vintage 1925 Gibson A-Style Jr Mandolin.


The tuners on this vintage 1925 Gibson A-Style Jr Mandolin just won't turn and need to be replaced. Dan Erlewine and special guest Carl Ho (owner of ACOUSICK ROOM Guitar Lutherie and Repair Shop in Hong Kong) demonstrate how to upgrade the tuners with just simple hand tools. Carl shows Dan his special method for cutting and shaping the plugs for a clean look and good fit. His technique works beautifully and can be done in the smallest shops.
