    I have a new casino that I'm doing a bridge swap on but i cannot seem to find 8mm bushings with a m8 thread. I need these specifically for the bridge i want to use. I cannot find any anywhere.

    I need the bushing part specifically, the part that actually goes into the hole on the guitar. The outer diameter of the insert bushing needs to be 8mm

    I don't know how else to explain this. I'm looking for the bushing, the metal part with a threaded hole that you screw the bridge posts into, I need ones that are 8mm outer diameter (to fit the body holes) with an m8x1.25 threaded center.

    Includes 2 studs and body inserts to adapt guitar body with M8/8mm large thread import mount to small 5/32"(4mm) ABR tune-o-matic vintage style post.
    ^^
    from the linked product in post #3

    I don't know if you can buy only the bushings without the inserts

    it's not a mega investment...:D

    The casino has skinny posts stock. My lucille does too. I had to replace the bridge because of wire buzz and a defective factory bridge.

    :cheers:
    That wasn't a question directed at you. Merely an observation.

    I've never gotten on with wire retained bridges, so no argument on that front.

    They did not work, the inserts were much too big. IDK why I can't find any that fit. This makes no sense. I cannot find stud bushing/inserts or whatever people want to call them that fit this body. I need 8mm outer diameter bushings with the m6 thread. It seems so simple lol

    Earlier you stated the thread needed to be M8x1.25. Now you're saying M6. Simple, indeed.
