    Hi guys. I just recently bought an Ibanez Ergodyne 605. Now the stock tuning machines are morbid and horrible. And I was wondering if you guys had any recommendations for replacing them. Company. Maybe even suggestions of exact tuners would be nice. Thanks guys

    The Hipshots on my Lakland USA Joe Osborne are very good so you might investigate that option. Don't know if they make tuners to fit your bass though.
     
  5. Here's link at Ibanez for the Ergo 605. Shows black tuners and part number, but nothing about ordering. You might have to search around their site for authorized dealers. Sometimes you can find a site that carries authorized parts for that specific brand.
