    Re: Changing hardware on Collings mandolin

    The bushings, I knocked out from the other end when doing an amateur refurbishment. Swapping in a cast Collings tailpiece for a stamped tailpiece on a 2003 MT2, I do not remember any great issue...
  2. Re: Weber factory tuner I.D. wanted / Adjustment question

    Thanks, Mike. That was also suggested by the seller. Changing the string is the first thing they would do.

    Wow, look what...
