    I have an old Starfire coming in tomorrow that's had the tuners swapped for stupidly heavy Schallers. I'd love to put some Hipshot Ultralites on this, which I love anyway and will solve the neck dive issue.

    I know I need 2x2, but what size? 1/2", 3/8", or neither?

    Thanks!

    I have a DeArmond starfire with stock tuners. Trade? :D

    What size are they?

    Wait until you get the bass.

    Remove one tuner, and measure the hole.

    That's the ONLY way to know what you need (assuming all four are alike).
