    I'm in the process of getting a replacment warmoth neck for my Fender MIA Deluxe 5. I want the same tuners that Mike Tobias used on my MTD 535. Anyone know the exact size and ratio, etc etc? Thanks, DP

    I think the Buzz Feiten tuning system is used on MTD's. Not sure who sells them, or how to get them, or dimensions or anything.

    I thought the BF system changed the placement of the nut?

    yeah.......from what I've read i dont think the Buzz F. system has anything to do with tuners. Maybe try sending Tobias an e-mail?

    check this site www.hipshotproducts.com, you'll get all the spec for the ultralight tuner that your MTD has.

    Huh. Here in C-Bus, there are no MTD retailers... I've literally, never seen one first hand...

    Hipshot tuners are the best! You can call them and they will tell you what you need and who can get them for you. I use them on all my basses. Check Them Out!
