    Hey JMJ, I've had nothing but trouble with the stock Fender 70s type tuners on my MIJ Geddy Lee. They are weak, flimsy and often causing tuning issues. Have you ever encountered such issues with yours, and if so, have you found a suitable drop in replacement? I'm sure yours would have copped a fair beating over the years. :)

    From what I've read the Hipshot HB2s are the business construction wise but I've heard mixed information about whether or not they are an easy replacement or require filling and re-drilling.

    Cheers.

    I'm obviously not Justin, but I did model my Geddy after one of his. The HB2 tuners were a direct drop in.

    I use the stock ones in mine and never had an issue, and my Geddys get thrashed.

    Thank you gentlemen. I've ordered a set of HB2s, hopefully they will get me out of trouble.
