Hipshot Ultralite Individual Bass Tuner with Fender-style Knob

About This Item

Lightweight compact tuner for smaller bass headstocks with 20:1 gear ratio. Convertible for installation on either side of the peghead.

Mounting screw, washer, and hex bushing included; 9/16"-diameter peghole required. Sold individually.

These tuners weigh 1.8 oz. each, compared to approx 2.3 oz. for a sealed Gotoh tuner and 3.5 oz. for a Schaller-style tuner.

Pilot holes required: Installing delicate screws such as these into hard maple requires great care and accuracy. We highly recommend using a 3/32" bit for the pilot hole before installing these screws. Lubricate the screw threads with cutting lubricant (also wax or a bar of soap) to reduce friction and help them thread properly.

Definite up - grade from the stock tuners.

I found a US Masters import bass(circa 2007) in a very small guitar shop in Wisconsin. Amazing quality and condition. The factory tuners left something to be desired. The Hipshot clover keys
slipped right into the stock holes and look and feel great!
It's good to buy parts from StewMac knowing they specialize in all things guitar and don't sell
shampoo and dog food. The catalog is amazing. Thank's Dan in WI.

Ideal for Old Bass Guitars with short scale (30")!

Those Tuner Machines were the single solution to built an Short Scale Bass Guitar that had appears on my workbench, because the originals do not work well loosing the intonation. The original holes are too small to adapt one original Jazz Bass Tuner Machine style, if so, the whole head could be broken.
I do not install yet, but I do not have doubts about their fittings.

My 11 year old Warwick 5-stringer broke the A string tuner, RATS! I've never done a repair like this before, but researched and researched, and accomplished the whole thing right and painlessly! All five tuners changed and loving the custom look with Fender style knobs on the Warwick.
Dealing with StewMac to get the parts was 1-2-3 nice and easy. Thank you!

Hip to use Hipshot

I recently bought a Fender Jazz Bass with Schaller/Gotoh style tuners. Preferring the look of the classic Fender-style tuners for this particular Fender bass, I decided to replace them with these Hipshot ultra-lights. Installation was a breeze, the one simple screw on the back of the headstock matched the existing hole perfectly. Furthermore there was no conflict, nor difficulty with the fittings or ferrules on the front of the peghead. This Jazz Bass looks way cooler now with the Hipshots than it did with the Gotohs. They work great too, which is important... but in this case I bought them mainly for cosmetic reasons. Nice product!

These tuners are well made. Easy to switch the knobs for inline or 2 + 2 pegholes. Expensive, yes but worth it!

Perfect Tuners

I fixed or improved the balance and performance of a 90's LP and a '72 SB-350. Perfect classic elephant ears, better balance, and smooth, accurate tuning. They do everything perfectly, but they certainly charge enough for 'em!
