    Does anyone know if it is possible to fit 6 Hipshot ultralite tuners (HB6C) on one side of a Fender Deluxe 5 neck? Of course new holes would need to be drilled.

    I've seen a Squier 5 converted to a 6, but as I recall there was at least one tuner on the lower side of the headstock. I think the Fender headstock would look best with a 4+2 arrangement like the Steve Bailey.
