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.

Gold on gold

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I used the gold conversion bushings with a set of gold Waverly butter beans. The gold on the bushings is quite a bit lighter than the gold on the Waverlys - worried me at first, but once installed the difference didn't bother me. They do their job well.

Perfect for a 1963 Jet Star

The original 3 on plate tuners kept pulling off the back of the headstock because the original holes for the tuning posts weren't on center from the Hoboken factory. By installing these bushings with a set of Grover 18:1 Sta-Tite tuners I got a guitar that stayed in tune without out any redrilling or overlay repairs on the headstock

These tuners bushings work as advertised. I installed them on my Taylor 410 when I replaced the stock ping tuners with Waverlys.
