Tuner Sizes and Fitting

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by fenderbassabuse, Apr 15, 2004.

  1. I would like to upgrade the tuners on my squier P-bass with some schaller ones. Does anyone have a link to schaller's website, and/or advice or knowledge on changing them.
    Many thanks.

  3. Ahh dammit. The ones on my squier are 10mm diameter and the schallers are 14mm dia. How would one go about installing a larger diameter shaft machinehead?

    Well..you could use a reamer and open up the tuner holes, OR, consider Gotoh or some other brand that has 10mm option.
  5. I want the 14mm as the 10mm looked fine and sturdy enough until my Fender jazz showed up on my wall next to it. All of a sudden, what looked meaty, looks weedy. What is a reamer as I have heard of one before?

    Note that the bigger tuners will affect neck balance.
