    Re: Replacement Tuning Machines

    I'm not a fan of the Golden Age tuning machines either.
    You are not going to find any that will have matching screw placement, but the holes for the tuning pegs will match up.

    Re: Shipping from Japan to USA?

    Best I can find is UPS for about $350.
    Mandolin won't be ready for shipping until the end of the month, so hopefully EMS air will be operating again by then, but we'll see.
    Thanks everybody!
