I have a couple of Mikros which were made with the square covered machine heads. I would like to upgrade them to the die cast units which look like the regular SR series tuners. If I order the listed part 2MH2YC0001:

1) This is a full set of 4 as shown, correct?
2) Will the ferrules fit my existing headstock without enlarging the holes?

I know I'll have to make a new hole for the single mounting screw. Just trying to get the closest I can to a no-hassle upgrade...

That part number is a set of 4

if your serial number (located on the back of your headstock) starts with a J they will not work...if it stars with a G then they will fit fine.

contact the distributer in your country, or an authorized Ibanez Dealer to order.

Foo. Should have expected that; both of mine are Js. Thanks for that info!

Thought I'd follow up on this, now that I've made the changes:




With the new tuners and a set of D'Addario ECB81S Chromes, I'm really happy. Tuning is a bit more stable and less "fiddly", and the sound is just what I've been looking for since I got my first Mikro.

Alright, I've got a newer mikro, and I am thinking of upgrading the machine heads. So how big are the holes? I do not feel like taking one off and measuring it.
