    Is it possible to convert a standard 4 on one side headstock to a MM style 3+1?
    I have an old Peavey Patriot that I was wondering about...
    Anyone?

    Then yes, I'd say it's possible.

    I would do a sketch, so Trace head stock, do machine head holes, make sure the strings can line up from the nut properly.

    Ack! Don't hurt your Peavey man! Maybe try it out on an extra neck or order a Might Mite one to see how it works or try it on an SX bass as a trial run.
