10.5mm Round Conversion Bushings

About This Item

Press-fit brass conversion bushings let you install tuning machines with 1/4"-diameter string posts into Fender's modern 10.5mm-diameter pegholes.

Great for retrofitting vintage-style tuners — no need to plug and redrill the peghead. Special relic nickel finish complements vintage hardware. Set of 6.

Please measure your pegholes before ordering.


Use the large reamer to install these bushings:

Homemade bushing puller to protect the peghead

Dan Erlewine needs to pull the tuner grommets/bushings from the peghead of this old Gibson. The lacquer is already damaged, and pulling the bushings can yank finish off too. Dan rigs a jig that holds the finish down while the bushing comes up.

Sometimes AbsolutelyNeeded

By

Verified Buyer


I use these about 50% of the time, especially when adding vintage style (or equivalent) tuners on some necks that are predrilled with larger diameter holes for some modern type tuners. They usually press-fit in very nicely depending on the holes you get like on some Chinese necks.
Now, what to do with all the leftover 11/32 dia. original bushings that are accumulating?

Just what I needed!

I love how they were 10.5mm for my MIM neck which has 10mm holes. I was able to press these busing in with a C clamp for a super secure tight fit. Excellent product and extremely fast shipping.

Putting Kluson/vintage style tuners on my radically rebuilt Squier VM Tele, and these were perfect. Super tight fit without reaming: just forced them in with a ViseGrip Mini bar clamp. Fast shipping, too, as always. StewMac is the bomb.

Hello from Portugal! The items arrived in perfect conditions and look great on my LPJ. Saved me from returning the Gibson vintage tunners that i bought but didn't fit on this model.

Saved me a lot of work...

By

Verified Buyer


I recently ordered a guitar online. Great little instrument but it came with Chinese Grover style machines. These were well-made tuning machines but made the guitar a little bit head heavy. To rectify this condition I decided to replace them with a set of Chinese Kluson style tuners complete with Keystone jade color buttons. So to make a long story short these little conversion bushings were just the ticket saved me a lot of work didn't have to plug the holes and re-bore. All I had do was ream out some polishing compound and wax residue that was inside the holes, no wood was removed in the fitting process, afterward the bushings press fit into the holes with just the right amount of snugness.

Caveat - I don't know if the face of these sits higher above the peghead surface than normal bushings, because no dimensions are given, but I used these on a Gibson Les Paul, with Gotoh vintage-style tuners, and the tuner shafts barely protrude far enough above the bushing surface to allow a couple of wraps on the wound strings. YMMV

Copper shielding made for the job!

By

Verified Buyer


I purchased the shielding to nix RFI in my telecaster. This tape is made specifically for this purpose. On eBay, you may find tape cheaper, but it is designed for flashing (to redirect water around roof protrusions), and it does not have conductive adhesive, requiring a jumper to join pieces. Stew-Mac's tape has conductive adhesive, eliminating additional steps.

I ordered the product on a Thusday afternoon, and am fortunate to live within a distance which brought it to my doorstep in less than 24 hours, packaged with care.
