Details

Press-fit bushings for 1/4"-diameter string posts.
High quality machined brass.

Straight-sided bushings: these are easier to install, and stay put better than tapered bushings. Straight-sided hex bushings are now standard on Waverly tuners.

Tapered bushings: this traditional bushing design has slightly tapered sides.

Some guitars may require peghole modification. See our specs. We recommend the #2062 reamer for flawless bushing installation.

Tip: To retrofit tuners with 1/4"-diameter string posts into guitars equipped with larger enclosed Grover, Gotoh and Schaller machines, see our 3/8" Conversion Tuner Bushings. No hole plugging and redrilling needed.

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.

Vintage Style Bushing

I used these as replacements and all I had to do was ream the hole just a tad. They sure enhanced the look. Loved how the headstock looks with these bushings.

The bushings worked great. I thought they were a little tight, but it didn't take much scraping or cleaning the sockets to get a proper fit. I had one of the Stu Mac reamers that worked well. These bushings have splines full length and would make good replacements for the Martin Vintage re-issue models. The ones I've seen had just a short spline near the top and many of them are loose enough to fall out when the string tension is off. Like when you are changing a string on the back of the stage in poor lighting and, well, you can guess the rest.
