I like the look of that.
Could well be an option for my 80's band...

I dig, but why the green tuning heads instead of a cream?

WHY?

I've seen some closed-gear stuff marketed as "aged white".

Oh- here are some for ze Mustang

Epiphone does the green tuner bit on some of their models and I just don't understand.

Gibson does it too. My SG has tuners almost that exact same color, and I just picked up two sets of tuners for projects that are also that color. It's in between "cream" and "green" I'd say. Anyway they are just Gotoh tuners, and they can be had with a variety of different button options, although it looks like to get cream, you have to go with the round buttons.

Kluson's "pearl" color looks nice, but I don't know if they're available with the screw-in bushings or if it's only the press-in type

haven't played this but the standard GT is great, Midge used it to good effect for some of the old Ultravox stuff... Costs a fair bit more than the GT

Isn't the green colour supposed to be representative of the way old Gibson tuners aged? But, like, wildly off and hideously ugly? That's what I always thought it was supposed to be.

WHY?

BECAUSE they are reproduction of orginal Klusons that were mounted on EVERY or ALMOST EVERY guitar from the 1940s till the early 1960. Also their had 3 types of tuning heads OVAL METAL, OVAL WHITE (CREAM) and KEYSTONE GREEN. The last option was supposed to be most luxurious, for that reason it was used on the top notch guitars like 1956 Les Paul. But why they decided to use KEYSTONE GREENS on this particular guitar, I have no idea

Yeah it's possible these are based on old Gibsons, which came with jade keystone Klusons. If you google image search you can actually find this fucked up picture, which out of context almost suggests Vintage TRIED to copy it.

Midge Ure? Who gives a shit? Everything this brand has ever done has baffled me. They also annoy anyone looking for vintage guitars on ebay, the wanks.

Everything's relatively, you can wank on vintage Fender Bronco or Coronado for example, which you're not going to buy. Argue what volume and tone knobs are period correct, that only tuners with "F" engraved on em are true, etc. and don't consider yourself a wanker. At the same time consider everybody else as wankers when discussion is about details of vintage Gibson, Ricks, etc. Double standarts?
I liked older models of Vintage better, they looked exactly like their prototypes, only the headstock was different. Now SG models have longer upper horn and LP models have slightly defferent design where neck meets body. Old SG junior copy was beautiful

Erm...ok then. I'm not really sure what your point is. Or what wanking has to do with it, unless it's about the relative merits of using the fretting or strumming hand.

Vintage are ok, I don't have any urge to buy one of their guitars, but they are very good quality for the price.

That's a good thing.

Now someone needs to start a "Rare" brand. With a "L@@K" model.
