.. the machine heads that they use 'nowadays', meaning on the current models ('08-present AmStands) are not the same as what are on your 2001 American Series ... again, there are a variety of machines used on 'MIA' models .. there are the ones used on your '01 AmSeries, they would go way back to be the same as those used in the early AmStands through the nineties, all the way up through 2007, and then lighter weight ones used '08+ on the New American Standards ... the machines used on the Hwy 1 and Hwy One Series, as well as the current American Specials (all MIA) are going to be the same as what you have on your MIM Standard ..
