The tuners themselves  are probabbly ok ,  it's just the orientation of the 2 on the bottom end in photo. They are installed "backwards " or  in other words ,( you have left side tuners on the right side )  etc.  The single one on the other side is   correctly installed .  best rule to remember is  "round = down "  ie: the tuner  gear cog should be  facing the body of the guitar .(imagine it with the cover off to see where the gear is ) otherwise  the tension from the string wants to pull the shaft away from the cog .

This usually is not a problem on enclosed tuners .  but bass and  open or  just covered tuners , it can be an issue . 

so .. what to do now ?  well you can leave it and hope it  handles well ,   and if they  start to slip , just replace the tuners with right side tuners. 

or it you have the room  swap those 2 to the other side, and fill the holes . 

I'd just leave it an cross your fingers . unless  you have some rightys on hand .

 hope that helps .

Thanks! Can you recommend more suitable tuners?

Nice ,, but .. backward turners on a bass ,, may invite slippage and  stripping  on those 2  tuners . BUT... may be fine too.
