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.
