3/8" Conversion Tuner Bushing

About This Item

Round and hex shape bushings for adapting 1/4" string posts to fit larger pegholes. Set of 6.

Conversion bushing example
Adapts 1/4" string post to fit larger pegholes.
Our special tapered knurled press-fit brass bushings lets you install Waverly or other tuning machines with 1/4"-diameter string posts into 3/8" or 10mm pegholes (Gotoh/Grover/Schaller) with no redrilling.

Note: these conversions bushings will not work on instruments with 10.5mm pegholes. Measure the tuner hole diameter prior to ordering.

For a perfect fit, we recommend the #2065 Peghead Bushing Reamer (.393" diameter) to cut a clean, accurate counterbore.

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.

Indispensable

I had to have these bushings in order to fit Kluson Revolution tuners to A Gibson J200 which has 10MM holes in the peghead. I couldn't have done the job without them.

Used these to install Sta-Tites in an early 70s Martin, following the procedure shown on YouTube by Bryan Kimsey (websearch Kimsey and "raccoon eyes"). Happy with the results.

Perfect fit

The custom neck had bigger holes pre drilled. These conversion bushings were perfect and they look great.

They fit but not snug

By

Verified Buyer


I tried to put these into a guitar kit headstock and they just plopped right into place and were not snug. I let a couple coats of elmers glue dry on them and tried to press them in again and they were plenty snug after that. They look great.

They will be fine.

I'm not sure why, but they wouldn't fit snuggly in the headstock. I got around that by swabbing the holes with shellac a couple of times. Pressed them in with a pistol-grip bar clamp.

3/8" Conversion tuner bushings

Verified Buyer


I bought these conversion bushings because the bushings that came with the Waverly tuners I bought were to small for the holes in my 91 Les Paul. These conversion bushings are a perfect. They fit like a glove.
Thanks Stew Mac!

Worked exactly as advertised

Switching to vintage locking tuners on my 62 reissue Strat, needed bushings as holes were bigger than tuner shaft. Cheap fix and worked perfectly!

3/8” Conversion Tuner Bushings

The conversion bushings allowed the changing of stock tuners on a D28 Martin to Waverly, tuners to be done without any problem. Thank you Stewmac for always having the correct items needed to complete a job!
