Baroque / Stauffer Style Headstock ~
The famous Stauffer headstock shape is actually not Baroque, but from the Romantic guitar period. I, however, like the word Baroque so that's what I call it.
This headstock can be used on both guitars and ukuleles with geared planetary tuners such as Gotoh UPTL's or Pegheds or with dedicated Stauffer plate.
An engraved plate (any design) can be custom made to order for Ukuleles. Gotoh Stealth tuners are used under the engraved plate to replicate the dedicated Stauffer plate tuners shown below.
For a truly authentic look, the dedicated Stauffer style tuners are available.
Originally designed in 1825, the modern reproductions are true to the original design but with better mechanics. These luxury tuners carry a handsome upcharge.
~ Rodgers Tuners (Canada) are simply the world's best tuners and make an absolutely beautiful Stauffer set with custom engraving. Inquire for prices. (Guitar only). Custom engraving available. ~ Rubner Tuners (Germany) make a good quality factory reproduction. Inquire for prices. (Guitar only). Fixed styles only.
