beautifull guitar...

No straightforeward answer but:

measure the distance between the rollers.

go to https://rubner-markneukirchen.de/onlineshop/index.php?language=en&cat=c4_guitar-mechanics.html

and configure your tuner there. (or any other manufacturer)

There are many youtube movies how to set them in.

I did it ones. For me it was a highly enjoyable exercise. A shame that I do not need new tuners more often because the rubner tuners are realy nice. (and more expensive than teh guitar but who cares)

35mm roller spacing is pretty standard and a safe bet.

Also maybe measure the spacing centre-to-centre between the plate screws if you want to reuse the holes/install it yourself easily.

I upgraded the tuning machines, nut, and saddle for my CG171SF.

BTW, I don't like those LaBella strings and will be going back to Savarez.
