Yes sir! Uh-huh. You're all set for any Halloween guitar contest, that's for sure... Nice work!

PS, Uncle John, I hadn't read your response before I typed my own "Yes sir!".

Thanks.  Your EBEG# would be low and good tuning.  The same string relationships as my GDGB tuning.  If I could sing a little lower, I would use the open E instead of the open G.

currently tuned to EBEG#, pretty throaty (deep box I guess). ill try your tunings THX

Yes, sir.  I like that one.  Probably a hard build to do.  How is it tuned?   I would likely go GDGB, but there are so many good choices.  Good old Chicago tuning DGBE is so versatile.
