Anyone familiar with the Yahama Piccolos?

What are the differences in the bodies of the 62, 81, and 82 pics? Also, are the metal and wood headjoints interchangeable?
General thoughts on the pro Yamaha piccolos?

I have a yamaha 81. It's a well used one I got a couple of years ago, I'm guessing it's from the '70s. The best thing about it is that it has no intonation issues. I play it with a tuner and it's pretty much spot on throughout the whole range. The G# key is a bit awkward for me, and it's hard to play some of the notes above high G. High E and F# is also a bit unstable. A bit of regulating may fix some of that. I tried a Hamig a few years ago and that would be my choice, but I'm happy with the yamaha.
