    Hello Y'all,

    I have some trouble understanding the authentic interchangeability of Fender bass tuners amongst the various models. Would original 1978 Fender bass tuners from a Mustang or Musicmaster be exactly the same as tuners for a Precision or Jazz? If there are differences, how could I tell which is which? Thanks!

    Same post and bushing I believe, but the Mustang base plates are smaller by a considerable amount.

    Thanks for the response. So Mustang and Musicmaster are the same and Precision and Jazz are the same? For 1978/S8 models?

    That would be right.
