knighty76 Posted July 5, 2005 Report Share Posted July 5, 2005 Hi! I've got a set of Sperzel Trim-Lok tuners which I hope to fit into my Mighty Mite ready-made Tele neck. I'm a little worried, perhaps unnecessarily, that the threaded peghead bushings supplied with the tuners don't fit totally snug inside the pre-drilled peghead holes in my neck. The bushings are a tiny, tiny bit smaller in diameter than the holes, and as such they can move a little bit side to side. I was a little surprised at this.. I expect to need to push those babies in. Am I wrong? The tuners are advertised as requiring the standard 10mm peghead holes. The neck was advertised as having 10mm peghead holes. If I measure them, the holes seem to be bang on 10mm and the peghead bushings if anything seem a tiny bit shy of 10mm. Does this matter? Am I growing paranoid? I guess with the bushings tightened properly onto the tuner it would provide a fair bit of torsional stability across the headstock, and the tension of the strings would bring the bushings towards the "neck" end of the peghead holes, preventing movement, so all is good no? Thanks in advance! Just reaching the finishing stage in my first guitar and all has gone well so far, even the body cavities routing, so the last thing I want is to be scuppered by incompatible parts.. Cheers all!
