    Curiosity resolved! I put them on myself. As I mentioned in an earlier reply, the soprano went first, and it became apparent the distinctive headstock looked way better (the 25th editions came with...

    Thanks. I put UPT's on my soprano Pikake KoAloha initially and liked them so much I added them to the Concert.
