perfect

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.

I think they look much more appealing than a traditional tailpiece.

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.

Tight fit.

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.

These are the same thing that you'll find on Fender made Telecasters and the like. Great product, no doubt about that. 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.

Great Ferrules! The install was an issue (based on my limited skill set). Once installed they worked great!
