Package Includes:

  • 1 HE6C 1/2" Detuner
  • Installation instructions and mounting hardware

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 drop "D" tuner
By Bill
Take the time to watch the youtube from hipshot on installation and tuning procedure Mine works perfectly everytime so far. I think having 2 or 3 good wraps on the post is the key for staying in tune.
