Thank you Erv.That is good but it would be great if I could find old working tuners as exactly the same as the ones on my pics.Cheers...

Christian,
What's wrong with your old tuners, they look to be in pretty good shape?

Erv,these are old photos.The buttons need to be changed, some are broken now.And I prefer to change the all tuners than replace the buttons.Cheers.

Christian,
If you change your mind, the buttons are available from Stew Mac. Very Happy

Good luck finding 1934 originals that are any better than what you already have. I wholeheartedly agree with Erv. Change out the plastic buttons, it's not rocket surgery.

Thank you Brad, and everyone.
I think I found something close to what I am looking for in a luthier's shop in Paris.I am going there next week to check if the tuners fit.Cheers.

The tuners from the luthier in Paris will not do.The trick is that the holes to fix the screws in the aluminium head need to be redrilled bigger.I ordered new tuners fleur-de-lis from www.stewmac.com that will fit perfectly.
Thanks to Erv for the link.
