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.

These bushings look the same as the original,it's the cleanest way to recover the old school looking without complex adaptations affecting the finishing.

Excellent solution for converting modern to vintage.

Actually, the title of this review is a bit over the top (hope my wife doesn't read it!), but these guys certainly do the job and does it right.

Exactly what I needed

These were a perfect fit for the peghead of my '67 Flying V. Allowed me to install double ring Kluson tuners with no additional modifications.

They are necessary for use when upgrading my MIM Strat with split shaft Vintage style tuners...and they work.

All Good

Perfect fit and this part makes my Waverley's sit in the headstock like it's hand made.

Perfect

I decided to put some vintage split post tuners on my HWY 1 telecaster and bought these bushings and they fit and look perfect. The price is reasonable and shipping was fast unlike the major stores. I think they arrived in a couple days.

Saved a lot of work!

I recently went back to the original Kluson three-on-a-strip tuners on my 1962 Gibson J-45. There had been some Grover Rotomatics installed with larger shaft holes. These bushings did the job they were designed to do with no additional modifications needed. Slick! Thank you!
