Dating kluson guitar tuners

Note that the gold platingand I have only seen this logo'd style on a few Charvels, mostly from the mid 3000 serial number range.

These tuners are rare and it is even rarer to find them on Charvels manufactured during the serialized era, 1982 - 1986.This style of "crown head" tuners was used briefly in 1982 (only for a few months) and is found on Charvels in the 1200 - 1400 ish serial number range.These tuners are almost identical to the early crown head version and used the same plating, set screw (mounting screw) position and "crown" head tuner shape and in fact when viewed from the back the two versions can not be distinguished.Grover tuners are easily recognized by their small kidney shaped tuner keys and obviously the Grover logo on the back of the tuner.The mounting (set) screw position for the Grover tuner is perpendicular to the bottom (base) of the tuner similar to the crown head guitars, these tuners are similar to those used on banjos hence its name.The most commonly used tuner throughout the serialized Charvel era (1982 - 1986).
