I can only seem to find them in nickle or gold. I need them in black. :( Anyone got any ideas? They seem to only come in 3/8"........

I've been looking for chrome or nickel 1/2" string ferrules/bushings myself. Allparts has a listing, but they are currently out of stock. I checked Stew-Mac too, and they seem to only sell 3/8"...

I went with the chrome since I didn't want them to have a bunch of slop or try to fill the space somehow. It is on the back of a white guitar, so it isn't super noticeable anyways. :D If I were to order a tele bass again, I would ask for 3/8 holes instead of 1/2 to be able to use a bigger variety of bushings. :D

I wouldn't mind chrome for my project. Did you have a set laying around already just in a color you didn't want, or did you find somewhere that had them in stock?
