    i'm upgrading the tuners on my p bass and i'm unsure of which ones to get. so far i have looked at schaller bml tuners, hipshot hb2 tuners and 57/62 fender tuners. im liking the look of the hipshot's but what do you guys think are the best? thanks :)

    They're all great choices, but I prefer the Hipshots. I put a set on my Status 5 banger with no problems. Hipshots are standard gear on US made Laklands, as well.

    i like hipshot ultra lights...just helps with heavy necks..

    anything with open back i just sorta like better, can oil them if need be, make sure theres no junk in them, all that fun stuff.
