    When did the amercian series precision start using the newer tuning pegs?

    I am going to buy a used precision. It says american on the headstock, with the new tuners, but you can see that another type of tuner was replaced (the larger older ones)

    This bass has been customized with a j pickup, and there is also a stap button behind the headstock.

    This got me thinking that this could be a re-issue, with new tuners. But the body is string-through and the neck plate says coronal california.

    If anyone knows what you think the previous owner did, can you give me your thoughts?

    Thanks

    Seriously though, it sounds to me like the previous owner just switched out the tuners for a different brand. You may try contacting him if it is really important to you.
