    Thank you :hyper:
     
  4. If it has an 11/16" peghole, yup. If smaller, easily fixed with a round rasp.
     
  5. Whoa up there fella. Better to check it before mounting. Here's the prob:

    Although the tuners look the same and WILL fit the holes, the base of the tuners are quite large. The bases fit between the holes but you might have a problem with the G string tuner slightly overlapping the edge of the headstock. I've experienced this condition on my MIJ Jazz and my Essex. The problem is easily solved by filing off the corner and touching it up with some black lacquer.

    All in the interest of full disclosure :)
