    Is there room for the lever of the Hipshot Bass Extender if it were to be installed on the 4th string tuner on a 5 string bass. I have three tuners on the top and and two on the bottom of the head of my 5 string bass. If I put the Hipshot Bass Extender on the middel of the top three tuners (for the 4th string), there does not appear to be room for the lever because of the 5th sting tuner.

    I've seen it done before.

    I've heard of people getting modified extenders that have a longer lever that makes it work, or something like that.

    you should contact hipshot see what they can do for you(it IS possible)

    Oh. My. Goodness.

    I can not believe how quickly you responded to my post with a photograph of exactly what I am talking about.

    Thanks.
