Package Includes:

  • 1 HE6Y 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.
