Hipshot Xtender

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Quick question, does anyone hang a bass with a Hipshot Xtender on a wall or on a stand where the headstock takes all the weight?

It seems to me that the lever takes a lot of the weight in this situation.

Anyone have any experience of this? It seems to me that it could damage the Xtender - Am I worrying about nothing?

Cheersย

I think that I wouldn't do it if the hanger touched any of the Hipshot assembly.

Thanks, that what I was thinking. I haven't been hanging the bass because I thought it could damage it. Just wanted a second opinion!๐Ÿ‘

I'm not quite sure what you mean or how you are hanging your bass. When I hang mine on the wall hangers the only part touching the bass is at the bottom of the headstock right by the nut. There should never be any danger of putting any stress on the hardware, extender or not.ย

Can you not alter it by opening / closing the lever so it sits in a different place?ย 

I like that idea, I will try it tonight!ย  Thanks!

Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I do that kind of thing all the time. Sometimes you're too close to the problem and tend to overthink. Taking a step back or a new perspective usually does the trick. ๐Ÿ‘

I did, but the lever protrudes down past the nut position.

However, you could face the guitar the other way 'round on the hanger (no good if it's for display, though!).

On my Rickenbacker basses the lever dosn't reach the edge of the headstock when it's in the normal/E position, so it would be OK.

On my Jazz it's marginal.
