Product is exactly - what I needed to modify my necks. Issue? The shipping on something so light weight, under 2.5 ounces, defies imagination for the cost. Good product, expensive shipping.Thanks, Tom @ Archive Guitar Works.
I bought Graphtech Tune-a-lele tuners for my ukulele which had heavy die cast tuners which made it neck heavy. The Tune-a-lele tuners are very light plastic and solved the neck heavy problem. However, the bushings were too small for the holes in my headstock. Graphtech recommended putting teflon plumbers tape around the bushings to make them fit. I did that but they would not sit flush on the headstock when the strings were tuned to pitch due to tension on the tuner shaft. I then tried wrapping the bushings with aluminum ducting tape as recommended by someone on the internet. It is stiffer than the plumbers tape so I thought it might work better. It did work better but the bushings still were not flush on the headstock when the strings were tuned to pitch. These Kluson bushings are for a 10 mm hole and a 1/4 inch tuner shaft and work perfectly and look great with the black plastic tuner shafts on the Tune-a-lele tuners.
Worked perfectly to use modern replacement neck with tuners
