Thumbs down The stupidest things always happen to me (tuning peg problems) (nbd day)

Hey kids,

I recently decided to get back into electric guitar. I literally haven't played it for 4-5 years. I have an ibanez S370 I'm pretty happy with but someHOW one of the tuning pegs fell off in the past 4 years of dormancy. I will probably be getting something new at some point, but I'm sort of torn between getting a new violin or guitar. Also, I may just consider trying mods myself for the first time in my life, because i'm just at this nerdy stage in my life.

Anyways, is replacing tuning pegs a big deal? Are there brands and stuff I should care about? Should I just pay someone to do this? It seems like it shouldn't be that hard given the damn thing FELL off somehow/somewhere.

Is anyone ready to humor me by answering something that probably has been asked before because i'm pretty much a senior citizen at this point.

Hollykins! Have you gone full bore alt-right with that Republican?

I will assume you're reasonably non-retarded, so, I'll say for you it shouldn't be too difficult in the realm of guitar maintenance.

I'm not very familiar with Ibanez, but they may not require screws, but you can always check with Stew Mac.

We got birthdays, coming up kid. Catch us up with what you've been doing. Shit, I'm getting old, but I'm still young at heart, and getting more radical by the day.

Take your guitar to the local music store and see if they have any tuners that match.

Good idea. I never think of luthiers/guitar techs because the good ones that didn't work in big box stores have mostly disappeared, and the remaining ones charge an arm and a leg. That's why I do all of my own work.

I'm thinking about it but will probably try to do myself first. As cheap as it is to try to find myself, won't hurt to give it a shot. My blood pressure is a little low so my doctor says to increase my stress levels, so here we goo...

Thanks for the link Slim. I just think it is crazy the damn thing fell off and I can't find it to save my life. It's been hauled all over the fucking place though.

See if you can take a tuner off, and put it back. Then, find a similar tuner, and you'll know you can do it. Or, you'll need 2 tuners installed, and I'll have overestimated you. JUST DO IT.

What's "nbd?"

New birthday?
