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

I ordered them and here's hoping they'll work! Thanks for the help

Never understood why someone would want skinny post Nashville (or ABR for that matter) when a metric bridge is so much more robust.

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.

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.
