Almost finished the restoration project I have been working on, got my new tuners in today, and they dont fit.

How do I go about increasing the holes in the headstock for them to fit?


#2
get a drill bit the size of the tuner and drill them out my friend or take the tuners back and gets one that fit....

Did they come into your house and rape you?

(carefully enlarge the hole with a round tapered file.)

They did unmentionable things to me

I didn't complain though.


I don't have a round taperd file here, how much would I expect to pay for one? Any other ways I can do it with things around the house? I was thinking some sand paper around a pencil or something might do the trick, but it'd take a long time.

Depending on where you like (e.g. the US being cheaper than the UK) you could probably pick up a cheap one at a hardware store for like $10-20 ish I guess. Pro ones will obviously be a lot more.

Sand paper, something round and elbow grease will work fine I imagine, just make sure you enlarge the hole uniformly.

Dammit, I came in this thread thinking it was about Phil Demmel

I believe the solution to your problem lies within a drill with the correct drill bit size.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.

Yes I ended up using a drill with a correct drill bit. Then 8 hard, long hours later.. after setting it all up and fixing the intonation and everything else, it is playable.

One problem, on D,G, and B when I bend it up towards the G, on the 5th fret, it buzzes and doesn't play the note correctly. Not an action/intonation problem, ideas?

Just on the fifth fret? i no you said its not but have you tried raiseing the action and if so and its till doing it i dont no mate...
