Westone Thunder 1A Tuner

Post by pompom on Sat Nov 08, 2014 1:25 pm

I have a really nice Thunder 1A but today the G string tuner/machine head broke! I changed the strings and the barrel nut that goes through the headstock had broken in two Crying or Very sad so I now need a new one. If any of you have one (one from the G,B,E side of the headstock), or a complete set you would like to sell, please contact me asap as now my G string clicks everytime I bend a note Neutral Also, if anyone knows an alternative that would fit the existing holes (peg and screw) please also feel free to let me know. Thanks in advance, until then I'll keep clicking away

Hey pom
are the small screw holes at 90degrees to the tuning post, or 45?
I have a set of the 90degrees
here

these are original but unbranded 1a tuners, some pitting but as far as I can remember they work just fine, I'll fish them out later on and check.

Yes that is exactly the part that is broken! Do you have it or just a tantalising picture of it? and the screw holes are at 90 degrees same as in your photo above
