    Hi guys.
    Thinking of getting a new axe, but i want to ask whether the threaded colar on the tuning post (please see attached pic) is essential part for the instrument, cause models do not have it.
    Also, i got a LP Special 2 model where it does not have a threaded colar and the tuning post came a bit out of the wood.

    No, some tuners work with a bushing, some with the nut.

    The bushings are usually a bit smaller than the ones with the nut.

    Conversion bushings exist for use switching to the smaller tuners when you have larger holes.

    You can manually ream your holes to 10mm if you wish to convert from the smaller to the larger.

    Thnx for your reply.

    So, given your answer, i can understand that the nut in the tuning keys/pegs is not an essential part of a guitar, and there are two options, one with a nut and one without a nut.

    So given that my LP Special II bushing probably came a bit out of the wood cause the whole might be a bit larger than it should be?
