Slotted headstock tuner rollers too short.

    I recently bought a Washburn WP11SNS parlor guitar and started to look into upgrading the tuners, since I don't care for the shiny gold ones they put on it. I noticed that the rollers are just long enough to touch the center strip of wood, but not long enough to rest in the socket of the headstock. So, it's basically a design flaw of the headstock. Is there an easy way to remedy this without removing wood?

    Tuners with longer shafts. You might have to contact a couple companies to find them but they exist.

    There is nothing wrong with that, but I would recommend winding your strings toward the tuners instead of toward the tip of the post. String tension keeps the gears tightly meshed, and stabilizes tuning.
