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 in 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.

I used these for a Squire classic Vibe Tele. I had to slightly ream out the holes, colulda been paint but it was very minimal and they fit great. The UAP will go on two ways but only works in one direction. They were not staggard but all have short posts. I was also able to install a Timara string drop with these perfect fit other than the slight reaming. I play 4 hours at a time and need tuners that stay in tune, these will. Best part no drilling or mods to guitar. It can go back to stock easily.
