    Has anyone kept the original post when putting on a new xtender? I have a Fender American pro and the post is fluted. I still want that if I put on an xtender. Has anyone done this? or know any information about it?

    Call Hipshot and ask for Oscar

    Hipshot mounts some other makers tuners on their Hipshot plates. That Fender tuner is one of them, the BT12 is that same tuner mounted on an extender plate. The post already matches.

    So the BT12 is your recommendation?

    I have sent emails to Fender and Hipshot and never heard anything.... In fact I must have sent each about 5 emails with no response.... Maybe I will call...

    Hipshot is usually very slow to respond to emails. But once they do, their customer service is great.

    They had gotten back to me. They wanted pictures a few days ago. Have not heard since then … Maybe they are working with fender to have a complete setup. Maybe not but hope I get a response. Thanks for all your help.

    I should have clarified. They take their time, but ultimately the customer service is excellent.

    They are out of that tuner for now, Fender has a tendency to let their stock dwindle to zero and then has to play catch up. So until Hipshot gets more tuners from Fender, you're in a waiting game.
