    Do mandolin tailpieces fit on octaves and bouzoukis? Are they interchangeable, or do the zouk and octave take different sizes?

    8 strings is the common ground for them all, and ought to be interchangable, Screw-hole pattern has some variation as to where the holes match up, or not exactly, in which case fill old ones, and drill new ones.
