    These Grovers are sittting on a pre-war synchromatic 160. Would they be original? Screenshot_20210131-150046~2.png I know these tuners were used by Martin and heard that at one point Martin had contracted to have repro sets produced, but they are not available for sale.

    I would say original. Those would be some rare and obscure tuners to have been an aftermarket mod. And considering they're worth a small fortune to Martin collectors, highly unlikely to have been a recent mod. Not commonly seen, but not unprecedented. Another pre-war 160 sporting them...
