    Thanks to a suggesion from Talkbase, I purchased a set of Hipshot Ultralite Tuners to replace the ones on my MIA Jazz Deluxe. The old tuners were three times heavier and caused a horrible neckdive whenever I played it. The lighter tuners has really made a difference in the bass and it's so much nicer to play.

    The Hipshots because they are smaller, take up loss room in the headstock but they also leave six holes uncovered. Any suggestion as to what I should do? Or should I just leave it alone as only I know that they are there...
