I bought a Strat with a Warmoth neck that someone butchered by poorly adding Sperzel tuners and string trees. One of the pin holes for the Sperzels was actually drilled all the way through; there's another set of holes from some previous tuners. Anyways, long story short, I want to plug these holes. Does anyone know of a source for small - i.e. 1/8" - side (face) grain plugs I can get? Birdseye maple would be ideal but maple would probably work equally well.

Just use toothpicks like most of us do.
Think of them as small paper birch dowels, just like their larger diameter lumber yard cousins.

If you motivated, you can make a plug cutter out of 1/8" id tubing from the hardware store. The difference in appearance between an end grain dowel and a face grain maple plug will be small and, IMHO, not worth the trouble on a previously chewed Warmoth neck.
