Hipshot Xtender on Geddy Lee jazz?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by thedarkone, Nov 29, 2004.


  1. I want to put a hipshot on my Geddy Lee Jazz. Has anybody done this? Im having a hard time deciding which model#. I emailed the company and they responded with the bt2, but it just doesnt look like a exact match. Anyone have ideas?

  4. Well, don't freak out if it doesn't fit. I got myself a Xtender for my Mexico Jazz and it didn't fit.. but I just took it to my local repairguy and he plugged the holes and made new ones with no problems.

    The BT2 will fit w/o a problem. It is a direct replacement for the tuners on a Geddy Lee. The MIM basses use different tuners. I have installed Drop-tuners on both styles.
