Reducing the button height
As mentioned before: Jürgens’s buttons are too long (for me). ”For me” means that I want them to go all the way down, so that I feel the end plate on my finger tip. Most players don’t like it, but for me it is absolutely essential.

First, caps are removed with a touch of a 1.5 mm drill in the two, small indents in the side:


They are then easily pulled off:


Since the caps are approx. 2 mm higher than the part of the body they cover, all I need to do is cut of enough to make their inside hit the top of the body. Turned out to be 1.6 mm.

Cutting is done in a small fixture on one of my routers:


Aah! Like another planet! Simply amazing what 1.6 mm can do -
