tuner replacements

tuner replacements

salutations y’all!
apologies for posting same elsewhere but casting the net wide.

probably getting a Bongo4 and it’s got the older style tuners-
noticed they’re huge and they’ve got 4 screws each holding the key in place from the back.

there are newer lightweight tuners available on more current basses, are they exchangeable with these older styles and do they need different holes drilled or are they direct replacements?
will they cover any possibly unused original holes?

have a set of hipshot ultralights I’d prefer but they have only a single screw mounting and will never cover all the older screw holes in the headstock.

anybody looked into this?
thanks very much!
