There's also the Schaller M6 ones, which are a direct fit, and priced about the same or a little less than the Gotohs...I like the look of the black ones here:

The M6 mini's should be a direct drop in for the mini Ping.

The regular M6 used to be a direct drop in for the standard Ping but they changed the mounting screw location a year or so ago.

Postal Centre? 

Was your FIV shipped by USPS rather than FedEx?

I received my FedEx shipping notice on Monday and have been compusively checking the progress. I was encouraged Monday when I saw that the "package" move from Jamestown to Fairview to Richfield, to Grove City. Since then it seems that it is doing circles and back to Grove City? I'm sure they have a plan to get this all the way out to San Francisco...but the unreadable bar code has me a bit worried:

   Just got my box from FedEx. Never got a notice of shipment. My Podium Special came late yesterday, so my wife is thrilled. angry  Have 3 boxes sitting around, one to go to Rob when she'll let me send it! crying  Now, the wait is on for my #23. FedEx just rang the bell & left it on the front porch of my 4 unit condo building. What's up with that? Have to call Kathy & see what happened with my email reminder. Plus, just left on my porch? Not all here are Honest-Abe's, so not thrilled with FedEx. Must be no sig required?
   Hey Denis, still waiting? Have one on me. Might help the time go by faster. After I get my hands on this baby, I'll post my thoughts. But boy, the Podium Special is sweet! End pin is too tight to put in, so some sandpaper & a little soap to help?

Those larger bushings do look nice - where did you get those, Jim? I've not seen them, that I can remember.

(I know, I said "no new holes" in this guitar, but I've got a couple other sets of these on other guitars that could use the larger bushings.)

Are these what I'm looking for?

   I don't know if I got a "special" one, but this thing is just incredible! No need for the ToneRite yet. If this guitar can sound any better with age, it will just be great! Mine doesn't need the top broken in much. I only played it for about 1/2 hr., having to get to some other stuff.
   Jim & Bill, thanks for the great setup. Had Jim do a bone nut & light strings, just working out great. I don't get the other comments, as they don't pertain to mine. I guess by #23 things were going just fine. As John Jr. said, a little cannon! Haven't gotten around to pics yet. I'm still in awe of this guitar. So close in blowing me away compared to my F-III, though that one is a one of a kind. But, then again, so is this one!
   Wasn't sure how the Grovers would look. Missed the bushing reorder. They look nice, just how I wanted. Will definitely do them now! Was worth the wait! nice guitar

That was my reaction too. I owned a previous forum guitar, the 12-fret OM with a mahogany top, and that thing really needed breaking in when I got it. By contrast, this one is starting out quite lively!

  I was waiting for others to comment in this way. I feel the same as y'all. It is a little cannon.

That's a coincidence. My tracking info shows that my barcode was unreadable and replaced in Grove City too.
They must be pretty hard on labels there.
