    i think they will. (i know they will if you're not afraid of a little woodworking.)

    the one thing to watch for with those keys (i put a set on my '96 P, much better balance than the old boat-anchors it came with) is the tension screw, which can all too easily back itself out over time and fall out, taking that little impossible-to-replace metal collar with it.

    as soon as you get these on the bass, put a little drop of the low-strength loc-tite on that little screw, then immediately screw it in and adjust it until the key tension is smooth without being stiff.

    once done you're good to go.
