    Hi all...

    I have looked on the Hipshot website, and I have an '06 US P Bass that I want to put an extender on. I think it may be the BT-4, but the description is kind of vague. The latest Hipshot addition to the catalog BT-8 is for 2008's and beyond so i think thats no good for me.

    Anyone have an idea :)

    The trick is matching the look of your current tuners to the hipshot - I suggest you take a pic of your tuner and send it to the guys at Bestbassgear and let them tell you what you need. They're great.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Well looks-wise the BT4 & the new BT8 both look very similar to my tuner, so I am guessing its the BT4 since the 8 is described as 2008 and newer. Its just that the description for the 4 doesnt really say specifically, so Im trying to be sure before I get one shipped and have to ship it back :D

    You do need the BT4. The BT8 was not used by Fender until late 2007.

    I have an '06 American Series P and the BT4 is the one. It'll fit with no modifications. The two pins on the back and the threaded collar hold it in place. Slick.

    Here's a pic of my BT4.
