    What kind of key do you want to install ? An ordinary tuner or the Hipshot D-Tuner ?

    An ordinary tuner (the small kinds) should work, but I´m not sure about the big ones. Ask a tech or a local music store, to be sure, and if not, go with Schaller or Gotoh.

    The problem with installing an extender on an ATK lies with the G string tuner. It backs up to the E string tuner preventing the typical BT7 from fitting.

    The best solution I've come across is to install ultralights. The hipshot HB6 and HE6 in 3/8 will fit across from each other.

    Thanks for the info - I hadn't considered that issue. I think I'll just deal with retuning or switching basses.
