Love those scalloped CBG's., .,.I agree UJ.,the slide is for the higher notes, so intonation is not a problem.,., cool build.,.,.,

Nice Ben! I do like the graphics on the box too. Bet it rings out well with the big soundholes.

A very good look this build.  Just somehow has a completeness.  I like the divots for the upper frets.   I never play up there anyway except for with a slide.   Yup.  The box was a good find and fell into good hands.   How are you tuned?  I like DGBD/DGBE and GDGB.
