    Can someone please tell me if the Hipshot HB1 tuning machines have tapered string posts?

    Also, for 3+1 headstocks such as the StingRay, are the gears/keys easily reversible to accommodate the G string?

    Thanks in advance.

    Turns out the HB1s do have tapered posts--just like the originals on my StingRay. No problem ordering 3 bass-side and one treble-side.

    (I ordered mine from Best Bass Gear--really fast and great customer service. Recommended!)

    You can order them with or without tapered posts.
