Hey ya'll - thanks for the forum.

I recently picked up a nice little Applause white oval label travel / parlor guitar. It is in real nice shape other than a few minor dents and dings. One of the bridge bolts was missing a nut which caused a heinous buzz, but a trip to the local hardware store and .25 fixed that issue!

Now I have two questions, first my rosette is missing and I cannot find a replacement anywhere online. The OD is 4.5" ID is 3.75". Based on other photos I've seen online it looks like the OEM rosette is a typical oak leaf style. Can these rosettes be purchased online? I don't even care if it's 100% original, I just want something on there. 2nd question is about tuners. I'd like to get a set of mid sized black Grover rotomatics, but I don't like the idea of drilling out the headstock for the 10mm holes. Anyone have a good source for black tuners that won't require drilling? I guess the reason I like the mid sized Grovers is because the headstock on this thing seems on the smaller side.

Thank you!
