    I really want to replace some tuners with the Da Vinci tuners from Schaller (because they look awesome and fit with my weight requirement) and I was wondering if there is a detuner or similar item that will work with them.

    Reasons:
    • Love the tuners for the look and weight.
    • Need to reduce a bit of neck dive.
    • Really want to put in a detuner instead of buying a 5-string for my current gig. Have a 5-er and really just want my favorite 4-string to go one note lower.
    • Did I mention I really want the Da Vinci(s)? I know, stupid but they're
    • Really not interested in the Hipshots or BML tuners.
    Much appreciated if you have any help to offer.

    Hipshots ultra-lite will work, but it'll be a asthetic mismatch. Call Hipshot and see if they will custom mount one for you. Their BT12 mounts the same way the Da Vinci does, and they do mount some Schallers on their extenders (M4 extender.) Given that, I don't think you are seeking anything extroidinary. Since it's a one off they may ask you to supply the tuner though.
