Sometimes the holes close up a little from paint and clear coat accumulation. I have had success running a drill in reverse with 5/16 bit to open them back up. I saw a Fender video, and the lady assembling effortlessly popped them in by hand, and I wondered if they could fall out again. I like them to press in tightly, I use a drill press (off) and chuck jaws appropriately set to press on the perimeter of the ferrule.
Great product. Fit perfectly. Sturdy
I think they look much more appealing than a traditional tailpiece.
As always the best stuff from Stew-Mac.Never had an issue with you guys or any product, you're simply the best!
Not much to say really.they look great.I didn't have access to a drill press and had a little bit of trouble getting the holes to line up exactly.A little jig of some kind would be helpful next time I use them.
These string ferrules press in perfectly for all my string thru builds. No issues. Eric Cellini
adds to the tone very well
What StewMac needs to sell is a tool or bit that will route out the holes on the back of a guitar body in order to seat these ferrules properly. Alignment is crucial if your drill press does not reach.
These did an excellent job but are a tight fit in the body. Luckily I had had the fore thought to make an aluminium drift, which allowed me to tap them in. Would have been difficult without drift.
look good feel good. need to sand the holes on my partcaster body and i good to go!!!
