3/8" Conversion Tuner Bushing

About This Item

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.

For a perfect fit, we recommend the #2065 Peghead Bushing Reamer (.393" diameter) to cut a clean, accurate counterbore.


Trade Secrets!

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.

I've always filled in tuner holes and redrilled to make the new tuners fit properly....but there's no need to anymore in most cases.

10mm to 1/4" post round conversion bushings

Never seen these anyplace else! Always used low tack masking tape previously. Shame on me! These bushings fit perfectly-almost pressing in by hand with only gentle mechanical advantage needed (I used a padded 3" C clamp). Highly recommended!

Look nice but - I.D. larger than original 1965 Klusens.

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I was going to use these to refit original Klusen machines/bushes to 1965 Gibson SG headstock but the inside diameter is somewhat larger than the originals. So I'll probably leave the existing Grovers on it. The added mass really makes this ax bark.
