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.

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!

These have already saved me many hours of work! I recently restored my #7 guitar (from 1974), which had been refitted with Schallers. I wanted to install new Gold Grover Sta-tites, and these made it a simple task instead of an ordeal. I will order these in quantity!
