The tuning pegs on my Yamaha TRBX 504 bass are starting to show signs of weakness and I would like to change them. However, I can’t find the model that lt comes fitted with except that they are Gotoh tuners. Would you know a model that could fit in without me modifying the head?
Yamaha are always helpful with assistance for instruments, but this also depends on how old the instrument is, I could not get original tuners for my RBX 200 from Yamaha due to that model being discontinued, it was bought in around 1989🤔
but I was lucky enough to find a second hand one in a pawn shop for 1 replacement tuner, that’s when I pimped the second hand one with gotoh hardware and it became the bassbuzz bass:joy:
I am actually not sure what the correct diameter would be for it; you would need to remove one and measure to see to be sure you ordered the correct one.
After that it’s basically choosing one you like and ordering the correct size; you also need to be concerned with the mounting screw hole lining up. If you are concerned about matching them it is best to replace all four. Remember that you need to make sure to get two treble side and two bass side.
Try Stew Mac, they’re a big supplier of guitar parts. If that doesn’t work, call one of the salesmen at Sweetwater, they turned me on to several repair sites they use. I went thru this with Yamaha on a new BB734 I bought earlier tis year. Needed a new G string peg and it took an act of God to get them to help me. I imagine that same tuner is in use on numerous brands and types of guitars and Stew Mac was the most helpful. Instrument Parts and Hardware - StewMac
