    I was just giving a tweak to the low b and lo and behold the peg just popped out. A first for me.

    So did the gear become unscrewed; or did the capstan break?

    Sounds like your low B is a no B 'til you get a new tuner.

    Left-handed bass...what did you expect? Best thing you can do is snag a set of Hipshot Ultralites (domestic or imports). I have a spare tuner body but the orientation is incorrect...sorry!

    Hey! I resemble that remark. ;) Cerieuslee, if Carvin (Kiesel) is using inferior parts, that's no reflection on us lefties.

    Nothing wrong with you lefties! In a normal world, this particular tuner throught he'd be sporting a G string. Instead, he got a B string and tried to commit suicide by jumping off the headstock...although there was a bridge nearby.

    I'm going to order the Hipshots. Thanks for the advice.
