Hey gang. I just joined up here to gain a little assistance with my build. I've been reading the forum for a while however. There's some great guitars around here. Anyhow, I'll probably start a thread just for my build but right now my issue is my tuning machine posts just barely poke out of the holes when assembled. I'll post a pic tomorrow but I've got a "Guitar Parts Zone" Tele style neck from a seller on that auction site we all love. I just drilled it for the alignment pins of my tuners. Fender sealed staggered style with the two pins. The two longer posts are okay but the other four are not. The string hole is barely visible above the retaining nut! The headstock thickness is .630! I'm reading here that the norm is closer to .550-.590? I wish I'd realized this before I drilled the holes. So what I'm asking is what are my options? Are there tuners with longer posts? I could trim the thickness of the neck but I bought it pre-finished. I can do wood and machine work but I avoid finishing mostly because I don't have a good space to do it. I could counterbore the holes so the washers and nuts are flush with the face of the headstock. That seems like a sort of ham-fisted approach, however. What do you guys think? Again, I'll post some pics tomorrow. Thanks.
