Post smokey gray Hipshots now in stock
Hi everyone, SE now has smokey gray Hipshot brand tuners in smokey gray,

I love the open gear look (I have a new Stick coming with black Hipshots)

Hey...is that a new Stick? I'm just curious as I have one on order that matches the description of the one shown there...

Looks pretty regardless!

I love Hipshot tuners: great, great quality (and good looking!)
I have them on 5 basses, they are IMO better than anything else

What's special or different about these tuners?. I couldn't find any info on the SE website. They have exposed gears? is that all?

Beyond the exposed gear, they are smoot,h precise and light. And durable.
I've tried Gotoh, Grover, Shaller and others: Hipshot IMO are the best.

These are mini guitar tuners, with an 18-1 gear ratio. Emmett is very fond of the action on them and the feel. They are made in the U.S., too.

The four different colors available from SE in Hipshots are:

all black
smokey gray
gold with black buttons
and just in, all chrome

Emmett has always used mini sized tuners. Since there's less string tension than with standard guitars and basses, and a need to pack them in on the headstock, mini's work great.

Are these backward compatible with older sticks, should we want to make the modifications ourselves?

Don't know, The holes are in a different place, but I imagine the posts are the same size. Emmett?
