Vintage Grommet Tuner Bushing

About This Item

These press-fit grommets are direct replacements for the most common tuner post bushings used by Gibson, Kay, Harmony and many other makers between the 1940s-1960s.

The old original bushings often fell out and were lost, so we've created these with a slightly enlarged outer diameter so they stay in place better than the originals.

Relic finish options have an aged look, made to be a better match for your vintage guitar.

Large size: Fits string posts up to and including 1/4" diameter (typical for Gibson). For a perfect fit, use our #2066 Peghead Bushing Reamer to cut a clean, accurate counterbore.

Small size: Fits string posts up to and including 7/32" in 1/4" post holes (typical for Kay, Regal, Silvertone and many other "house brand" guitars). We recommend our Standard Peghole Reamer to cut smooth, perfectly round holes.

Sold individually.

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.

Small bushings

By

Verified Buyer


The small bushings in relic brass finish were a perfect fit for my 1964 Harmony Archtone and matched the tuners and overall age of the guitar perfectly.

Installed these grommets on an old Silvertone Parlor. Made a noticeable difference in Tuner function and they look great!

excellent fit for a Harmony Rocket

By

Verified Buyer


i am bringing my father in law's '63 harmony rocket back to life. Four of the original bushings were missing, so these (the small models) were the ticket. They are a little longer than the originals but fit the tuner holes well. I put a drop of CA on each to keep them in place. So far so good!

Great on my Silvertone 1421

By

Verified Buyer


My Silvertone 1421 was missing a couple tuner grommets - ordered 2 sets - one for my 1421, and one for my 1448. Just what I needed.

So much nicer, and more authentic, than what come with "Retro" tuners.
Glad I found these and I looked everywhere.
