    This is a side step of my parts build thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f57/fender-american-select-flame-top-nitro-first-parts-build-1055382/


    The only current two-pin machine that I can find available for current production American necks (standard and deluxe) is the Hipshot type:

    Both my deluxe Jazz and my standard P have these larger body machines that I can't seem to find separately and I assume that they are also two-pin style. Does anyone know a part number for these tuning machines? :eyebrow:

    Ok well, either I'm missing something huge and obvious (likely) or these are too new have a parts distribution. Anyway, I think I've solved my problem by installing the hipshot style machines (listed above) on my P after pulling these for my Jazz build. As long as they have the same two-pin mount, that works out perfectly.
