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.

Round conversion bushings

A little soap as lubricant and they pressed right in - a perfect way to dress up my modern-headstock guitar with classy open-back tuners (Golden Age Restoration).

A basic product that works well and is very useful for fitting vintage tuners to modem tuner holes. Far easier than plugging and redrilling!

Good fit on American Special Strat

I bought these so I could fit vintage style Kluson style tuners on my modern strat. They fit nice and snug in the modern tuner holes and allowed for a clean install. I will be ordering these again in the future.

Sometimes AbsolutelyNeeded

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?

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.
