    Hey all.
    I have a neck with Kudson deluxe tuners and one of the bushings wont stay in. Any easy way to fix this?
    Also, one of the screws is loose making the tuner loose also. Any time tested tips for that?
    Thanks guys.

    Some people have resolved the loose bushing issue by removing it and using teflon or masking tape wrapped a couple times around the bushing, then pressing it back in.

    The loose screw is easy. Remove it and the tuner to expose the screw hole. Then take a toothpick lightly dipped in wood glue and press it into the hole. Snap it off level with the neck surface, wipe off the excess glue (if any) then replace the tuner & screw.
