1920s-style Tuner Bushings

About This Item

Keep your vintage guitar or mandolin looking authentic. These press-fit brass bushings are a simple finesse for adding historical accuracy to reproduction instruments.

Sized to fit standard 1/4"-diameter string posts.

Available in original smooth thin-wall grommet-style brass or our unique knurled machined version. Both types have a similar appearance when installed. Important: measure your string posts and pegholes before ordering. See specs.

Sold individually.

Check your pegholes before ordering.
The original-style bushings are smooth and unknurled, requiring a snug fit to remain flush and rattle-free. Our knurled versions are good choices for retrofitting on pegheads that already have press-fit knurled bushings—doweling and redrilling may not be needed. See Specs.

For a perfect fit, we recommend the Peghead Bushing Reamer to cut a clean, accurate counterbore.
#0733 Original bushings: use #2066 reamer
#0734 Knurled bushings: use #2061 reamer

These bushings will not fit the large pegholes required by Grover, Schaller, Gotoh and similar enclosed guitar tuners that have threaded 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.

Not only were the bushings sent promptly, but the service I received prior to ordering them was
exemplary. I have been ordering from them for over 20 years. Their first class service and selection
is always delightful.

Knurled 1920s-style Tuner Bushings

So glad StewMac sells these. The knurled bushings have the look of old-fashioned guitar bushings but stay in much better.

used these on an old 60's Harmony arch top that needed a lot of rehab. They work well & look good.

These relic nickel bushes looked like they'd been on the old ukelele since the year 'dot'. Spot on!

I selected the "original" nickel version for an old Strad-O-Lin that had no bushings at all. These with the golden age tuners resulted in a very successful tuner replacement.

Like the originals

I used the relic nickel original style bushings on my 1911 Gibson L-1. I installed them along with the Golden Age Restoration Tuners. The tuners do come with their own bushings but I wanted the simpler looking bushings to better match my guitars originals & style. StewMac even cut the shipping cost down when I forgot to order these bushings along with the tuner set (which had already shipped) Thanks for the awesome service and products guys!

Perfect fit.

These were a perfect fit for my vintage acoustic, not too tight, not too loose. Look original to the guitar. Can't beat the price either!
