DESCRIPTION

Don’t carry the weight of the world on your shoulders! Hipshot’s Ultralight Bass Tuning Machines are made of durable, precision machined aircraft-quality aluminum to lighten your load, and give you the correct instrument balance without sacrificing tuning accuracy or durability.

Heavy zinc bass tuners add unnecessary weight to your headstock, straining your neck and shoulder. It also restricts your left hand to holding up an unbalanced instrument, robbing you of the necessary freedom of motion so essential to a natural, relaxed playing technique.

Sleek and compact, easily installed on the smallest of 4, 5, 6 & Extended Range Bass headstocks.

The 1/2 inch diameter version fits basses with a headstock hole size of 11/16 inch.

Bass side = Left side of headstock on a right handed bass. Treble side = Right side of headstock on a right handed bass.

All finish colors have Hipshot Logo. Lighter yet possesses full size gears and string post.

Cloverleaf Key

Please Note:

Due to the variation in peg-head bore size on basses with 1/2" post sized tuners Hipshot offers 3 different bushing diameters for their Ultralight tuners and Ultralight Detuners.

There are three different bushing sizes available for Ultralight tuning keys.

  • .618" 15.7mm
  • .660" 16.7mm
  • .700" 17.7mm

0.618"(15.7mm) is intended for a smaller bore size of 16mm. Examples of basses that utilize this particular bushing include Fender U.S.A, Lakland Skyline or any basses built with the Hipshot Lic. Ultralight 1/2" tuning keys.

0.660"(16.7mm) is the standard bushing size that comes supplied with the US made Ultralight tuning keys. Fits many basses with 17 - 17.5mm bore hole.

0.700"(17.7mm) is intended for the larger bore hold found on many Made In Mexico Fender basses, or any bass that utilizes a 18mm bore hole.

Perfect solution for neck dive!
By Josh from on 8/1/2016
 
Great quality, easy installation and half the weight of traditional Fender machine heads! Perfect solution for combating neck dive issues on basses with large style head stocks, five strings, long scale necks, light basswood bodies..all things contributing to unwanted neck dive! My Fender basses feel so much more comfortable and better balanced now!

I replaced the factory ones on a Squier I am modifying and they feel and work a lot better for sure.

Rock-solid tuners.

These are a huge improvement over the stock tuners on my Epi. They're not cheap, but you get what you pay for in quality and precision. I bought three of these to go with a Hipshot extender, and I haven't had any issues with stability since.

I replaced the factory tuners on my Reverend Mercalli with these. They feel solid..solved the slight neck dive issue...and my bass sounds better now! I don't know why...It shouldn't?....But it does

The Hipshot Ultralights work great on getting rid of that nasty neck dive on my Epiphone Jack Casady .
These tuners will turn your good bass into a great bass.
