Great job! I like the design a lot.
That is a beautiful guitar. I haven't built my "beauty" yet. Right now I am working with whatever materials I can find and work on a milk crate in the backyard, still experimenting with scale length, pickup location, tuning and 6-strings or 7. Great job making it beautiful with a look of its own.
