    I am not sure where this topic should go but I thought basses was ok. Sorry if not.

    I wonder if there are any push pull (or any other system) tuners that keep the ears from turning.

    Yes, there are so-called 'locking tuners'. Sperzel makes them, but they require a unique sized mounting hole.

    You could replace the "winged" knobs with round ones such as on the Ibanez Gary Willis bass. Ibanez sells them as parts, to go on a standard tuner, IIRC a Gotoh.
