Tuning keys

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by cecile, Jul 12, 2005.


  1. Does anyone know where I could get some tuning keys that would fit an american deluxe jazz bass neck? I'm not wanting to drill new holes in the neck and I'm not wanting to spend a lot. Would these work?


    btw, sorry if this thread is in the wrong place.

    Those won't work. For the price of that entire set, you're going to get about ONE tuner that you want. They're expensive, so if you want the cheap way out, drill new holes.

    MIA dlx tuners are incased in plastic,this saves weight and cuts down on neck dive. If you use those type of tuners your bass will be suseptable (sp) to neck dive, and if you do drill holes and don't like the bass because of what I just mentioned you have just destroyed the value of the bass. Your call.
    Btw, whats wrong with the tuners on the bass?
