    I want to string my Gibson ripper thru the body, but the ferrels by the bridge are gone. I had the ones replaced on the back, but there is just wood holes on the front and I know the strings will just eat away and get out of tune. Any ideas?

    I think the best thing is to go to a repair shop, I moved a couple years ago and I didn't know where to go and so I emailed the Gibson customer support and the same morning I received a list of authorized shop in my area.

    do a google search for 'string ferrules' and you'll have your choice of places to get replacements.
