Question on tuning pegs.
« on: January 17, 2021, 12:46:36 pm »

Beginner player here.

I was busy putting on some new strings on my telecaster and i noticed the parts of the tuning peg where you put the sting in are wobbly and i wondered if it was supposed to be like that or if i should tighten them up? (Couldn't really find any solid answer through google)

Thanks in advance!

Do you mean the peg as it emerges through from the back of the headstock?

These can be tightened with a socket placed over.
But some are wobbly as you describe which disappears under tension.
What make / model is it? Can you take or share a pic?
