    I've got a Fender 5 string on the way and it has the Gotoh GB7 tuners that look like this:

    I want tuners that look like this:
    fender%20jazz%20bass%20v%20amer%20dlx%20sb%2011-21-07DSCN9649.jpg

    Anyone know where I can buy replacement heads that will work? Don't really want to change out the entire set of tuners, I'd like just the heads.

    I Gotoh doesn't make that style tuner in a cloverleaf (which makes cloverleaf parts a little scarce.) If you want cloverleaf tuners you'll have the replace them with a different brand.

    Yes they are, but not the same ones. He has sealed tuners.

    you mean tuners with smaller footprint?

    Then yeah, OP needs to opt for other brand. Hipshot makes HB6 3/8" Ultralite cloverleaf style tuners which have same footprint as Gotoh sealed tuners.
