    What bass are you wanting to put them on?

    Those Wilkinson's appear to say 47mm across.
    If you have a Squier or some other models,
    there may not be enough space between the
    peg holes to mount the tuners. It appears that
    those are vintage size, which are bigger. Check
    your measurements closely.

    Wilkinsons are about the same quality as the
    nicer Squier tuners.

    I am not familial with the other tuners,

    +1 Be very careful on the measurements. I made the mistake of buying a set of Wilkinsons for a Squier and they would not fit. I had to return them.

    Woow! Thanks, maybe it's a little late, Will be for a MIM jazz Bass neck, I already bought them! I hope fit on it, will be a shame if not fit well.

    Just curious, which ones did you order.
    I think that you can use either one of
    those tuners in your first post.

    Let us know how it works out.

    Thanks for sharing,
