    Alright i found some Black "Y" style tuning machines that will fit my 11/16 holes. They are hipshot Ultralites model HB6Y-1/2. The only thing is they are quite pricey. At this point i really need to curtail my bass gear spending.

    So... anyone know where i can get cheaper ones. I checked ebay, stew mac, bestbassgear, bassresouce but with no luck.

    Warmoth sells the Schaller BML Light Bass Tuners that fit 11/16" drillings. A chrome set of 4 is around $50. I have a set on my MIJ Fender and they work fine.

    You're better off IMO. It might have been more expensive, but atleast you know they're top notch.
