    So, in looking for the Steiny Gearless tuners, I found these:

    Not exactly what Ced was looking for, but damn interesting.

    Are you talking smallest in terms of weight? Or smallest in terms of form factor?

    Couple thoughts;

    1)Traditional Firebirds have Banjo style tuners, which are a different form factor.
    2)Look up LSRs. I'm not sure they are "smaller", but the buttons are definitely thinner.
    3)Floyd Rose Speedloader. Not technically a headless guitar, since most of the models that had them stock still had headstocks, but designed to eschew tuners completely.

    Like, so small that you need a hex key to tune the strings! I'm wondering because it is interesting
    That's an interesting idea certainly, but unfortunately socket headed hex bolts and shit like that can get stripped with regular use, even if you are really careful.

    Unless you missed the previous page, I have already found the smallest possible tuners!





    Piano pegs, basically.

    4:1 banjo tuners are quite quite small; comes as locking ones too.. (sorry, don't remember which brand I was looking at)
    Else, if you check the link to the Goto Stealth above, it does say buttons are detachable, well, by mentioning how they'll be matched to the body parts.
    Maybe check if Schaller round knobs will fit the Stealth ones..

    Look at the pic of the back of the Gibson headstock, with all the paint chipped to shit. Kinda says it all.
    Noodles

    Tomorrow never comes.

    Die young, gonna die young,

    Kinda says it all it's probably a USED guitar?
