  2. Be aware: the extended, right upper horn is really uncomfortable on the Vette; here's what I had to do on my Vette 4 to make it playable: cut the upper part, re-glue a compatible wood, re-shape and give it some shellac hand rubbing. Here's the result below. (Uh: since I was there, I also enlarged the below cutout so to REALLY use ALL the frets!!!)

    Meh, I dont like the looks of it after that change... I wear mine high, so the upper horn doesnt bother me much.
