Sized to fit standard 1/4"-diameter string posts.

Available in original smooth thin-wall grommet-style brass or our unique knurled machined version. Both types have a similar appearance when installed. Important: measure your string posts and pegholes before ordering. See Specs.

Sold individually.

Check your pegholes before ordering.
The original-style bushings are smooth and unknurled, requiring a snug fit to remain flush and rattle-free. Our knurled versions are good choices for retrofitting on pegheads that already have press-fit knurled bushings—doweling and redrilling may not be needed. See Specs.

These bushings will not fit the large pegholes required by Grover, Schaller, Gotoh and similar enclosed guitar tuners that have threaded bushings.

Golden Age F-style mandolin tuners The knurled bushings are supplied with our Golden Age F-style Mandolin Tuners.

used these on an old 60's Harmony arch top that needed a lot of rehab. They work well & look good.

Totally Bushed!

These relic nickel bushes looked like they'd been on the old ukelele since the year 'dot'. Spot on!

I selected the "original" nickel version for an old Strad-O-Lin that had no bushings at all. These with the golden age tuners resulted in a very successful tuner replacement.

Bushings For Mandy

The Tuner Bushings that I ordered were for my 1920's Roundback Mandolin. These bushings were exactly what I was looking for. They look like they are 90 years old, even though they are brand new. Perfect match ! Thanks !

Like the originals

I used the relic nickel original style bushings on my 1911 Gibson L-1. I installed them along with the Golden Age Restoration Tuners. The tuners do come with their own bushings but I wanted the simpler looking bushings to better match my guitars originals & style. StewMac even cut the shipping cost down when I forgot to order these bushings along with the tuner set (which had already shipped) Thanks for the awesome service and products guys!

They work on a Rick-12 as well

I bought as set of these to go on the slot tuners of my 1981 Rickenbacker 12-string, which is old enough to have the original Klusons. I trimmed the collars to fit the slots, and they work perfectly.

Perfect fit.

These were a perfect fit for my vintage acoustic, not too tight, not too loose. Look original to the guitar. Can't beat the price either!
