Replacement tuners for fender usa jazz 5 (2000) inline clovers (5 inline)

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by garagebassman, Feb 18, 2018.

  1. It seems that the clovers on my original tuners actually contact the adjacent key (between E and B tuners at least) , on occasion.

    hasn't been a terrible issue, but while restringing recently, I've taken notice of the later clover tuners that fender used (hipshot lightweights I believe ? )

    They seem to have a screw to keep them from moving

    Has anyone used them as a replacement on these basses ?

    Do I need the 3/8" size or 1/2" ?

    Will I need to modify anything except to drill small holes for the retaining screw on each one
    I don't have any issue with staying in tune, but may want to replace these at some point due to the "annoyance" factor of tuners being to close

    Not a lot of extra room on that headstock ! But I've had this bass for a while and will likely keep it around

    Thank You
