    I'm sure there's a thread out here somewhere for it, but I'm not having luck with the search function. Which model of ultralites fit the Casady? I'm hoping to alleviate the neck dive a bit.

    Measure the diameter of the existing post. Typically 3/8 or 1/2 inch. Hipshots are reversible--4 in line or 2 + 2 or lefty.
    I have 4 1/2" I need to trade or sell ( I nee 3/8").

    Hipshot will probably know without you having to measure. They're pretty good for this kinda stuff. If find out from them please post it.

    They're 1/2" inch for the Casady.

    Thanks. I'm leaning towards the Gotoh Res-O-Lites. They're less expensive and 3/4 the weight of the Ultralite Y keys. The 9/16 bushing means enlarging the hole slightly but I'm thinking that might not be such a big a deal.
