The thumbholes are also weirdly stepped, due to the two-shell construction. I found it difficult to close them accurately. So I filled in the "step" with epoxy, to form a smooth rounded rim. Works much better now.

Like you, I prefer non-recessed thumb holes, which are available on the more expensive hardwood and warmstone models, which don't have an inner shell. Your solution, using epoxy, is ingenious. You should hop over to the MO forum and describe it in more detail. I'm pretty sure there would be more than a few who would be interested. This modification would void the warranty, of course, but that's not really such a big deal on the polycarbonate model.

As someone who just ordered a second MO poly C because of a mishap involving the left thumbhole and a sheet of sandpaper (I was trying to bevel the outer edge--bad idea), I second the request!

I'm a beginner (just started maybe 10 weeks ago, no musical experience to speak of) and find that my highest notes are a bit rough because I can't get a perfect seal around that left thumbhole.
