    I just got a 97 Am.Jazz Deluxe from one of our TB.members(thank you very much)and it's great except for the tuners.They all grind some and it's even grinding some of the plating and brass off some of the gears.Has anyone had this trouble with theirs and what's the fix?I took the worst one apart,cleaned it and lightly oiled it and it helped some but it still grinds some.Also is there any other light tuners that will fit this bass?If I can fix these I'll keep them on it but I'm also looking for options.Thanks for any advice.

    You can always purchase another set of tuners at your local music shop. They will probably have to order them though. I broke one recently and had to wait for a shipment to come through. Most stores just don't carry them as they are different from other Fender tuners and considered a special order item.
