This set of 4 in line right handed Gotoh Vintage Fender Style Bass Tuners are in the Pre CBS Kluson style complete with reverse wind tuning action (tuning up is in the opposite direction to normal) and non flush back plates. The tuners will fit 50s and 60s era Precision Bass and 60s Jazz Bass guitars and modern reissue Jazz and P basses provided there are recesses in the back of the headstock to accommodate the bent metal clips that hold the button shaft to the base plate (please see back photo and dimensions). These also have the vintage rivet attachment style of the cloverleaf button to the button shaft. The tuners feature a 1:26 gear ratio for tuning up accurately and four screws per tuner (included) fix it to the back of the headstock and the knurled push fit bushing secures the string post on the front of the headstock.

Please note these are a special order item and do not come in branded packaging.

Gotoh Bass Tuners

Well made and heavy, press fit bushing required some packing to fit the Squire headstock but looks much better than the standards on the Jaco rep J-Bass

Nearly a drop-in replacement

These Gotoh Pre CBS Reverse Wind Vintage Fender Style Bass Tuners were fitted to a '91 MIJ PB-62 Precision bass reissue. They replaced the '70s pattern factory fitted tuners. The two lower screws fit the original holes in the headstock. The upper holes need to be filled (cocktail stick or matchstick) and new pilot holes drilled. A very simple job. Aside from the drilling requirement, the tuners are a perfect fit. The bass has a bridge with coarse threaded saddles and a slab rosewood board and is now early '60s spec.
Note: these tuners do not fit flush to the back of the headstock because of the bent metal clips that hold the button shaft to the base plate. Fender corrected this in 1964 when recesses were drilled to accommodate the clips. If you have a post '64 bass, drill the recesses to make it period correct.
