Offered is a collection of Bruce Springsteen items featuring tuning pegs from his main guitar, a Fender Esquire. The legendary New Jersey rocker used these six Schaller guitar tuning machine heads on his famed Fender Esquire guitar while performing on stage. The six silver metal heads are displayed in a white foamboard mount in a 2 x 3 x 6-inch orange cardboard box with blue printing and a clear plastic window. The box is inscribed “the world’s finest guitar and bass machine heads” and “Schaller electronic” on the top, with the Schaller logo in white on blue on two sides and the legend “Prazisions-Mechanik” in blue on orange. The box is also inscribed “Made in Germany” at one side. This item comes with a letter of provenance from Michael Batlan, Springsteen’s personal full-time technical assistant from 1973 through 1986.
