3/8" Conversion Tuner Bushing

Round and hex shape bushings for adapting 1/4" string posts to fit larger pegholes. Set of 6.

Conversion bushing example
Adapts 1/4" string post to fit larger pegholes.
Our special tapered knurled press-fit brass bushings lets you install Waverly or other tuning machines with 1/4"-diameter string posts into 3/8" or 10mm pegholes (Gotoh/Grover/Schaller) with no redrilling.

Note: these conversions bushings will not work on instruments with 10.5mm pegholes. Measure the tuner hole diameter prior to ordering


Trade Secrets!

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.
