I love hipshot tuners . They put the stock tuners to shame. When I start a new project I always check out Hipshot products because The quality goes in first
Such a fantastic product!!! My guitar tech just dropped these bad boys in; a simple, and direct conversion to my MIM Fender Jazz. No modification was necessary. NOW, my bass stays PERFECTLY in tune. When coupled with a Hipshot string retainer, proper string tension is truly maintained. The resulting tone is phenomenal! This makes it possible for me to focus on what's REALLY important: the music. Thanks, Hipshot!
I just installed these tuners on my MIM Precision bass, and they're fabulous. They look great, and they're a big improvement over the stock ones. This bass also sports a new Hipshot high-mass bridge. I really like this company, their products are great and the service is top notch. Rock on!
I purchased a set of these and installed them on my Japanese Fender 62 reissue P Bass. These little babies made a world of difference! The stock tuning keys are very touchy and quickly go from “perfectly in tune” to “way out” with just a fraction of a turn. The HB7’s are a huge improvement. Now my bass tunes like a high end bass. Plus the tension screw is great. I can adjust it so that they’re not so easy to turn. Try that with a stock tuner! I was not sure which tuners would fit my bass, so I emailed Jason and he was very helpful. He suggested the HB7’s but said I would likely have to re-drill a few holes. To my surprise, 3 of the 4 holes lined up, so I only had to drill 1 hole per tuner. These tuners, along with a few other mods, made my ol’ 62 RI into my “go to” bass. I’d recommend them to anyone.
