I just ordered H*pSh*t tuners for my 1988 4003, JG/BT refinished to MG/BT....soon to be MG/GT --gold trim!--
yes! gold hipshot tuners....should look good with the MG ric
why do you guys put * for i and * for o in hipshot?
so, what are the hardware sizes of the screws on the bass?
3 screws for the truss rod cover 8 screws for the pickguard 2 screws for the neck pup adjust 4 screws for the bridge pup surround 2 screws for the bridge pup adjust 7 screws for the bridge-- (I have the 2 at back of the bridge to prevent tail lift, factory installed, not a user mod) 4 screws for the input jack
So, any one know the sizes of this stuff? I will look as well, any help in the right direction would be cool!
I want to put in all gold hardware, taking out the black / chrome hardware in there now....
I was thinking of doing one as well MG/GT If you are going to use the Gold hipshot tailpiece and you want to keep the traditional ric sound use the aluminum version instead of brass. Good luck can't wait to see it
I also think that gold trim would look awesome on a Jetglo (think les paul black beauty) the hard part is the pickup covers in gold would have to be custom. You can paint it yourself with goldflake paint in rattle can. the next problem would be trim rings in gold that would be goregous either MG or JT
