Replacing tuners on a CIJ '57 P reissue, need drilling?
The tuning gears on my CIJ 57 P reissue don't slip, but they are very loose and annoying to deal with. This bass was bought directly from Japan back when Ishibashi could sell Fender Japan products to American customers. The fittings around the holes in the headstock look to be slightly smaller than those on my USA made P's. Is replacement going to require drilling out those holes ? Or are there replacements readily available in the USA for CIJ tuners.
Anyone else done this?
