NOTE: Epiphone guaranteed “All models for the life of the instrument” (catalog 1932), but “metal and other parts that recieve wear, excepted” (catalog 1934), since they don’t last such a long period. So, many of the historic guitars are most likely not equipped with their original tuners anymore. Therefore, the pictures below only show types of tuners Epiphone used over the years. They don’t necessarily show whether they originaly belong to the instrument they are on.
For detailed information about the Epiphone tuners , see Wiedler : Close-up #45 and
