    hi, i am currently building a 57 reissue p bass from the stratosphere on ebay. i have won everything but the proper tuners. the tuners i won from him did not fit the 57 neck i won from him. i have since sent them back. does anyone know where i can find tuners that will fit a 57 reissue MIJ p bass? i measured the holes but im not sure if i did it properly. this is my first bass build and i want to get it right. if any one has any help at all it would be greatly appreciated. thank you

    This is kind of a tough one. I had a similar problem, but lucked out that the tuners in my old neck fit. Problem was, no one knew if they would fit or not, so I didn't know in advance what I was facing.

    Do you have ferrules to fit?

    If you do, then you can figure out the inside diameter and shaft length of the tuners you need. I'd then try All Parts. :cool:

    You really want the reissue tuners?
    If they're anything like the US reissues the tuners are junk.
    You can probably find some "newer" and smoother ones for less money.

    Hmmm. the US reissue tuners have been working fine on my '84 62RI bass, they're not junk.

    You haven't given us anything to go by. Simply telling us "they won't fit" doesn't exactly say what it will take to get correct ones.

    You might wanna consider Hipshot. Shoot them an email and ask if their keys will fit an MIJ neck.
