Waverly tuner alternatives for OM1?

I have a Collings with the standard 16:1 ratio Waverlys. They tune fine but they're a bit tight and I'd prefer the higher ratio.

They now make them in the 21:1 high ratio version but not with the ebony buttons.
I know it's just aesthetics but it matters.

Are there other direct fit high quality, high ratio options?

If your Waverly's are tight or some of them are....contact StewMac. They've either replaced or reworked tuners for me in the past.

You can get the high ratios Waverleys with ivoroid buttons. You can get ebony buttons as well, so you could pretty easily replace the ivoroid buttons with ebony.. Not sure if the butterbean buttons are removable/replaceable.

I'm pretty sure you can't remove the buttons. I don't see a screw on the tuners.
