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.

Absolutely perfect.

My 1965 Framus 12-string was missing some tuner bushings, and these looked like they would do the trick. They worked perfectly, look identical to the originals, and fit so much better than the originals that I’m going to replace all of them!

I bought these for my 1959 Silvertone Stratotone Tuxedo Black 1420 electric guitar that I got for a X-mas present from my dad in 1963. I've been restoring it myself and these were the last items I had to hunt down to wrap it up. They were a perfect fit for the tuner's holes and fit the tuner's shafts perfectly, also. Very happy with the grommets. Thanx, StewMac!

Very nice for my old timey mandolin!

By

I replaced the tuners on an old chili dipper style mandolin and these bushings made the fit between the tuner post and headstock look very nice. I really like them and would not hesitate to buy more.
