    There aren't any other games in town as far as detuners go, so yes. It'll be better than the nonexistent Fender detuner that is currently with your MIA bass. Even Fender uses the Hipshot detuner for the Roscoe Beck IV.

    And from what I've read, the general consensus on Hipshot tuners is that they're among the best you can get. They're so popular with the boutique luthiers like Mike Lull and Sadowsky too. Take that for what you will.
