They’re awesome, my jazz and P-Bass have an entirely different feel without the extra weight. No more neck dive.
They’re pimp daddy and light weight!
Love the Hipshot tuners! I had to get one so I could tune my acoustic bass down to B tuning. Hipshot had the half inch tuner I needed for the B string, the stock tuners snap the B string because they are too small in diameter. Once I found that it worked great I ordered the other 3 tuners. Now I can get a thicker bridge and nut to raise up the strings to eliminate any buzz.
I missed the option for shiny Chrome and ended up with one shiny and three matte...oh well, it adds interesting character, we'll see if anyone notices.
I am in the process of up grading everything on my bass and bought these tunners along with the hipshot bridge.Everything I looked and said need to drill out the tunner hole to 9/16 of an inch. DO NOT DO THIS FIRST. I bought hand creamer and gave each about 4 turns wit moderate pressure and the bushings feel right into place. Ii really like the the way they look and how smooth they are. I will post pics when I am completely done.
