Conversion bushing example
Adapts 1/4" string post to fit larger pegholes.

A great solution

These bushings look the same as the original,it's the cleanest way to recover the old school looking without complex adaptations affecting the finishing.

Perfect Fit

I ordered 2 sets just in case. I liked how they fit in my Strat so much that i did the same job to my Tele. They were a perfect fit, a little snug going in but with the proper amount of pressure they fit like they were custom made for both sets of pegholes. Very nicely machined pieces, w no rough edges. They are way better quality than any fender bushings. I highly recommend these for your project.

Can't live without them!!

Actually, the title of this review is a bit over the top (hope my wife doesn't read it!), but these guys certainly do the job and does it right.

Exactly what I needed

These were a perfect fit for the peghead of my '67 Flying V. Allowed me to install double ring Kluson tuners with no additional modifications.

Did the job...with help

Look great on a reissue 72 tele thinline with Gotoh Vintage Oval Tuners from StewMac. Too small for headstock holes, so I wrapped them in plumber's tape. Solid so far.

Use when required

Don't use countless wraps of masking tape! A great piece of kit.

They do what they do.

They are necessary for use when upgrading my MIM Strat with split shaft Vintage style tuners...and they work.

All Good

Perfect fit and this part makes my Waverley's sit in the headstock like it's hand made.
