Keeps pegholes perfectly aligned and spaced so your tuners will work efficiently.

These jigs align your hand drill correctly for 1/4" pegholes, so your tuners will be accurately aligned and spaced. Use them for new instruments, or to correct tuning problems caused by misaligned pegholes.

Item   String post spacing
2070 Jig for 3-on-plate tuners   Standard 1-3/8" (34.925mm)
2071 Jig for 6-in-line tuners   Fender 15/16" (23.8125mm)

Made of machined steel for a lifetime of use and specially coated to resist corrosion. Each jig includes two steel transfer pins, two steel alignment pins and instructions.

The jigs are for use with a 1/4"-diameter bit. To enlarger pegholes, or to counterboring for bushings, remove the jig after drilling, and use a Peghead Bushing Reamer.

Extremely frustrated.

By Brad from Chandler, AZ
(Customer's Reviews) Tuesday, December 09, 2014

Although I have to take most of the blame because of my lack of experience this drilling jig was useless for me. I could've done better by eye. It was clumsy, awkward and frustrating to clamp up. Unless your head stock is a "Usual shape" and square. My head stock shape was that of the Benedetto guitar. Setting up places to drill was hard for me. I was trying to stick to the measurements in the Bob Benedetto video for an Archtop and this just was not the right thing for me to use. I tried to make it work for me by just using it to drill one hole at a time at right angles and not use the 3 hole alignment concept, (because of the different measurements) but that probably was the only way for this thing to hold true and work properly. Again, my inexperience takes most of the blame but I wish there was more information when I bought it.

Solid & Accurate!

After several failed attempts to make my own jig I decided to bite the bullet and purchase one of these puppies. The price was a bit of a deterrent but I sucked it up and bought one. With in 15 mins of opening it I had perfectly drilled accurately spaced holes. I will be using this again and again. Well worth the money! Another great Stew-Mac product!!!

Tuner Drill Jig

By Jim Hobson from Vernon, NJ
(Customer's Reviews) Saturday, August 31, 2013

Worked ok. Would have liked to see centerlines scribed on ends and at each hole for easier, more exact placement of jig on layout lines of peg head. Aligning left and right side to match was tricky.

Very Handy Tool

If you are looking for clean and flawless tuner holes this is the tool to get. I bought the 6-in-line version and Gotoh Vintage tuners have a perfectly alligned no-gap fit. Make sure to get the .340" Peghead Bushing Reamer and you'll have those wonderful vintage stepped tuner holes.
