How to remove the tuner bushings on a fender
Folks I'm replacing the tuners on a pre-CBS bass. But the ring bushings on the front face don't seem to want to be shifted.
Has anyone got any techniques?
PS: don't moan at me I'm keeping the original tuners!
By "shifted" you mean remove from headstock?
I got my stubborn bushings out by finding a socket from my tool box that neatly fit into the hole from the back side. Some gentle tapping nudged the bushing right out.
Can't recall which socket it was; 3/4" maybe?
They are a tight fit so get a socket or something the right size and carefully press them out.
You might also want to take a razor blade and run it around the edge of the bushings. If any finish overlapped the edge or adhered itself to the bushings over time you could get a nasty suprise when you drive the bushings out.
WHY CAN'T WE HAVE THIS IN THE STICKIES ALREADY DAMNIT!!!
Been there, done that.
Thanks for the post T-Bird! Great info.
