CIJ 62 reissue P-bass neck & HB3 tuners??

    I recently got a replacement 62 reissue P-bass neck (serial# R 05 9316), and was wanting to install a set of Hipshot HB3 vintage tuners on there. I ran into some trouble as the existing holes in the headstock are too small for the bushings for the HB3. In fact, the holes in the bushings are exactly the same size as the existing holes in the headstock (9/16", I believe.)

    So my question is two-fold:

    1.) Did I really receive a "62 reissue" neck? From what I know, the HB3 was supposed to be a "direct fit" for this neck.

    2.) If it is a 62 reissue neck, which of the Hipshot vintage tuners should I get then? It seems that I have received some bad advice about this. Was I supposed to manually enlarge the existing holes to accomodate the HB3??

    Thanks guys.
