Hi Spot,

I noticed on my MT-2 tuners that the post (hopefully I am using the right descriptives here) that the string passes through was somewhat bending over due to sloppiness between it and the bushing on the head.With the tension of the strings, this bending caused binding and so tuning was a bear...really hard to turn the tuners.

The new tuners sent to me by Collings don't seem to have that space between the two. I hope I am somewhat clear there...they were the Elites tuners...the ones sent to me are also Elites, but without the problem.

For as nice of Mandolins they are, I wish they would use better tuners..in them. I will replace them with Waverlys eventually.. probably one this next year and then the other mandolin the following year.

These dang things do cost an arm and a leg, but like you I keep finding ones that I want to buy!

Take care...astro
