Default GS Mini tuner button replacements

Does anyone know if the Schaller Mini M6 tuner buttons will work as a replacement on the GS Mini?

Taylor used Ping Tuners.

Unfortunately, Schaller buttons do not fit on pings, or I would have swapped out the buttons on my Larrivee Parlor decades ago.

I just put Taylor’s own branded mini tuners from their website on mine. They are the mini version of the larger branded tuners. Drop in replacement and much better than the stock tuners. https://www.taylorguitars.com/taylor...or-mini-tuners

Presumably he wants to change the metal buttons for wood or other lightweight material.

I have them one mine for 2-3 years now, the black ones. You have to drill holes for the screws to keep tight in place, they are smaller than the stock, fit and look better but do not feel better, or tune better and for the price paid new are totally not worth almost 100euro, the bigger/stock ones worked and felt better. Maybe the standard size works best than the mini
