Thread: Bridge bushing adapter?

  1. #1

    Bridge bushing adapter?

    Hey guys. Iím kind of an idiot when it comes to this whole guitar building stuff. Iíve been watching a bunch of builds here, and really loving what you guys are doing.

    Iím working on a gr-1sf build. And I bought an aftermarket roller bridge. Specifically this one. https://www.stewmac.com/Hardware_and...er_Bridge.html

    Problem is. The bushings are far too small for the holes pre drilled on the guitar. Iíve been looking around the internet and banging my head against the wall. Are there larger bushings out there that will fit the m5 adjustment pegs? Is there some kind of adapter.

    I really appreciate any help!

    Question, do the new adjustment pegs fit into the original bushings supplied with the kit? Or does the new bridge fit onto the original pegs supplied with the kit?

    Neither. The bushings that came with the kit are too large for the pins that came with the roller bridge. And the adjustment screws that came with the kit are too large for the bridge.

    Could you post some pics, so we can see what your dealing with?

    Could be something along the lines of this;

    Or these;

    I'm sure if you work out the adaption needed, you could get something local like this;

    I'd suggest contacting Steward-Mcdonald and explaining the problem. Their customer support is very good.

    The one in the left is the one that came with the kit. The one on the right is the one that came with the roller bridge.

    Something like those might work. Anyone know an American supplier for something like that.

    Iíve reached out to stewmac. But havenít heard anything from them.

    Is there a 11mm bushing out there that will accept the m5 pin?

    Have you got a mate with a lathe, turning new posts up out of stainless would be pretty easy

    No access to a lathe sadly. The other route is could anyone recommend a decent roller bridge that will fit the gr 1sf posts? This was the only one I found that didnít see me to be Chinese junk and also have a 12 inch radius. I bought one of the Chinese ones and the rollers are all stuck and the saddles were all stuck.

    Surely there must be one or two lathe owners in our midst.

    My mate has a lathe and was an incredible machinist until he had a debate with the rear end of a hilux on his motorbike, major brain damage was the result
