Tuner identification?

Post by rinneby » Fri Feb 15, 2019 5:46 pm

Anyone recognize these? My heart says Alessi/Exagon or Sheller... I got them on one of my (high-end) guitars.

I can't help with identity. But it made me think if all the posts trying to identify tuners. Why don't the manufacturers stamp some identification on the back. It would make sense to me that they would want the recognition.

My guess is they are Robson tuners.

They could be Alessi. He uses the plastic roller bearing. I'd use that as the first call for id purposes. The rest of the details may or may not be Alessi. I can only say that they are very close to some of his features and that some of those features he may have changed i.e. things like the button pips.
I think Steve's post confirms it.

Thank's everyone. I need new screws for those... do I need to contact Alessi? (They should be pretty short).

I talked to Nicolò and he confirmed it was indeed Alessi, an older Hauser model. New screws are on the way :)

Kind regards
