Which Drop D Xtender do I need?

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by rappa29, Jun 1, 2007.


  1. I want to get a Drop D Xtender for my bass.

    I've been shopping on the web and Hipshot seems to have about 30 different styles! None of which are described as the one I should use. I have Grover Tuners on my SX PJ.

    All the Xtenders I've seen are described as suitable for Fender Vintage, Gotoh, Schaller, etc. I haven't seen one that explicity says USE FOR GROVER TUNERS.

    Can someone tell me which one I'm supposed to get that will fit my bass and match my Grovers?

    At $80 a pop, I don't want to get the wrong one and play the 'return and exchange' game.

    TIA!

    Can you post a picture of what the tuners look like?

    what is the hole diameter in your headstock?

    the 3/8" key requires a 9/16" hole
    the 1/2" key (Fender style) requires an 11/16" hole

    all the best,

  4. good question. i guess it helps if i know that. i'll have to measure. I don't think there's any info on the net about SX headstock hole diameters.
