I am no luthier, let me tell you. I am attempting my first Tele parts-o-caster and I had no problem installing these ferrules in a MIM body. I just tapped them in with a hammer and a wood block. Easy peasy. They look great and I highly recommend them!
They look and feel well made. Use a drill press to drill the through the body holes (1/8"). The spacing is very tight. Set your drill depth or use tape on your bit, to drill the bottom pockets. The ferrules are pretty tight. Press them in or use a block of soft dowel wood and tap them in with a light hammer, carefully. They seat really well and the course ribs hold them in place. I think I will use the flush mount next time. Great products, Stew-Mac!
They fit nice an tight on my tele project, great ferrules !!
Well made looks like they will stand up good, fit is really well with a little tap or two on a wooden block to keep from damaging the ferrules. Thanks again
Great quality, size identical to specs, compare exactly to factory look and weight.
It's a great product! Installation and prep is a straightforward process. Ferrules stay tight! I recommend this to everyone. It's a bit expensive to order it to Poland ;) but along with some other stuff - it was worth it!
They sit in the holes very well.
These work great. These are the 173's.
A little pricey, but these are good ferrules.
Used them on a telecaster style project, great looking, i did notice one thing, which really doesn't bother me at all, is that they look like brass compared to the other gold parts i have, not quite as shiny, but its the back anyways and how often do people see the back of your guitar, even then you would have to be looking for that to notice it, no big deal at all!
