    Yeah, that's what I'd do if I had any concerns - IME/IMO, they're a very good company that's quite knowledgeable about their products and specific applications...

    Let us know how it works out, ok?
  7. Hi, nice bass you have!

    For what it might be worth, I installed black HB1s on my '94 SB2 and it was a direct fit, screw holes and all, although I kept the original collars the tuning pegs fit into because the Hipshot ones weren't quite as snug in the peg holes for whatever reason. I would definitely reach out to Hipshot if you are still on the fence. Good luck!
