Hipshot tuner upgrade kit featuring the Classic Closed Tuners in a staggered 6-in-line orientation. Improve your guitar's tuning stability without damaging your headstock!

The Hipshot Tuner Upgrade Kit for 6 In Line Headstocks (with FREE Universal Mounting Plate) allows you to install Hipshot tuners without the mounting screw holes. Finding the right aftermarket tuners that match up with your guitar's mounting hole pattern can be a guessing game and if your new tuners don't match, you're stuck drilling new holes, filling the old holes and screwing in the new tuners.

That's why Hipshot made the UMP™ (Universal Mount Plate). The UMP™ is a patent pending adapter plate that fits between your Hipshot tuners and the headstock of your guitar. Tabs on the face of the plate prevent the tuners from slipping against the headstock. At the same time, reach nuts inserted through the existing headstock holes into the tuners keep the whole assembly securely in place. This means that the tuners, interlocking as one unit, use the headstock holes themselves for stability rather than individually drilled locator pin or mounting screw holes.

Upgrading to the most precise tuners on the market is really as simple as orienting the plates on the headstock, inserting the tuners through the plates into the headstock and tightening the reach nuts and washers from the front. The 6K1 style kit covers guitars with 6 In Line (also known as 6 on a side) headstocks. This includes everything from the hockey stick style headstocks to standard Fender® styles.

Love these tuners. I needed to upgrade my Fender Stratacoustic tuners because the stock tuners were functional but not smooth and precise. I did not want to drill locator holes in the back of the headstock because previous experiences doing that on other guitars were not as positive as I would have liked. The Hipshot tuner upgrade kit has a universal mounting plate that holds the tuning keys and requires no holes to be drilled. The tuning keys themselves have staggered heights so you have to make sure you put them in the right order when installing them. I have not used staggered height tuners before but they work just fine and allows you to remove the headstock string trees and still maintain proper break angle where the strings cross the nut.
These tuners are a nice inexpensive modification that brought the functionality of my Stratacoustic to a professional level.
