Do Mexican Fenders have the same size tuning peg holes as the Am. series?

    I'm wondering if I can use the same size Ultralights that I use on American Series Fender.

    You put them in and then screw them in, like any other tuner...

    I was talking about Hipshot Ultralights.

    RE: Fender UL's - the older generation with black gear casings are not drop in replacements on mexi basses.

    I have no idea about the newer UL Fender tuners.

    MIA Fender headstocks are thicker than MIM headstocks if that means anything.
