Default Vintage Yamaha replacement tuners

Hello all,

I just took possession of my late 60s-early 70s FG-150. It arrived with all the vintage mojo I could have hoped for.

Of course, the tuners are not functional.

Which is the best replacement tuner for this model?

I would think Grover Rotomatics would be an easy fit. But make sure you buy from a reputable dealer. Most of the 'genuine' Grovers on eBay are on closer inspection fakes.
