Just to be clear, @Bobhmcs, I didn't order the Hip Shots because of tuner tightness. I ordered them hoping to reduce neck dive. They are on back order so I don't expect them for a couple of weeks. If you have trouble turning the tuners, you may want to try loosening the Philips screws on the back of the tuners or lubricating them...just a thought . Edit: Not the mounting screws, the one for the shaft.
