How would you do this? I have a couple of ideas but never having anything to do with guitars before I would like other ideas.
The pins which hold the strings need replacing and the holes need to be repaired. The pins are ok but they are tapered and fit a straight hole, which makes no sense to me, and the holes are worn making the pins a loose fit.
The owner said he wanted brass pins made to match the old which I think would be useless in the worn holes. Could I drill out the holes and install some sort of metal bush and then make a straight pin from brass and cut the necessary groove for the strings? Would this work or would making them from a nylon of some sort be better? Is it necessary to have a tapered pin for it to work?
Here's a pic of the guitar and the problem.
