Just got a Hofner CT Club bass, and overall it is a great value. Love the red finish, and the tone is awesome (after replacing roundwounds with Labella flats). Only thing I am not happy with is the tuning machines. I have already stripped one of the gears, so tuning my "E string is very difficult. The plastic knobs on the pegs are not very robust either. Has anyone had any luck using other tuning machines on Hofner CT model basses? If so, who makes them and when can I purchase?
