    I have been looking at some similar to these from the same vendor but for my Jazz. I also am wondering about the quality. It will be intersting to see if anyone has had any experience with these particular tuners! I may just go ahead and send the bucks to find out!

    Yeah... for 35 bucks how wrong can you go. I imagine replacing the originals isn't a hard task either, although I've said **** like that before.
     
  4. They may or may not be right. If the hole in your headstock is not the right size, the bushing will not fit properly. You should contact them and see what size hole they fit and measure one of the holes on your bass to be sure you're ordering the right size.

    Those are Mighty Mites, ( http://www.mightymite.com) very common aftermarket replacement parts. Quality is reasonable and good value for the price. Personally, I'd get HipShots, but the Mighty Mites are fine ...... :cool:

    Mighty Mites are decent, but check out this auction:

    http://search.ebay.com/130203515689

    I have bought several sets from this seller in the past. These are true Schaller machines but were made for Gibson years ago, thus the Gisbon logo. Quality is much better than Mighty Mite. The bushings will fit a standard Fender. However you need to buy screws as I don't think he has screws. This seller must have bought a large stash of these as he has been selling these for several years.

    So, which of the Hipshots work on a Squier P? HB1, HB2, or HB3. My ruler is rudimentary at best, so any experience here?
