    I inherited a 1957 silver jet and it is missing 1 of the tuner bushings. From what I can tell they are Waverly Tuners. Does anyone know where I can get replacement bushings or what the part number would be? I've seen stuff on StewMac and other sites but I'm having a hard time finding the exact piece. I will post pics, phone currently not working. Thanks for any help!

    A machine shop or someone with a little lathe should be able to help you.

    Thanks everyone for pointing me in the right direction. Got the tuner bushings and guitar is back playing! Sounds really nice! Next question is does anyone know what I should look for as far as strap caps for 1957 silver jet? I do see them for sale, but want to make sure I get the right thread. Man, just noticed my string is hung up on tail piece, that's embarrassing. IMG_2162.jpg

    I’m going to go ahead and assume that all the strap pins had the same thread. I’m sure others who know more will chime in.

    I love the sparkle on that jet. One lucky guy to inherit that kind of guitar!
