HipShot ultralites on my Listerud

See photos

August 10th, 2005

After a bit of thought, discussion, calculation and more though, I decided to swap the tuning machines on my Listerud bass from Gotoh tuners to Hipshot Ultralite type. The main motivation was that these are lighter, and my bass was slightly neck-heavy. Changing to these tuners helped - now I don't need to hold up the neck to get a good playing position - it stays where it is supposed to be. That helps my playing quite a bit!

The new tuners were supplied by Listerud (of course), and he also sent me some nice postcards with photos of, among others, my bass!
