"Thanks Bones", Yep!, have tuned the low G up to A on some of my other GDGB Gits, but don't seem to use it a lot, usually go for the DGBE higher strung builds. :-)

"Thanks UJ", Whilst looking through my previous 16 LPG builds in the search to come up with something a bit different, I realised I didn't have a 4 String LPG, the GDGB tuning came about by a "Stuff Up", something I seem to doing a bit more of lately, don't know where my mind was in the early building and setting out stages, but it was supposed to be a 26" scale with access to 19 frets, tuned and strung to suit DGBE, but after burning the side fret markers in, and placing the Bridge where I wanted it, the distance from Nut to Bridge was 28½ inches, and as you can see it is now a Baritone CBG with access to 15 frets, and tuned to open G.  :-D

"Thanks Rev Denim", don't profess to know a lot about "Indiana", but the maps tell me it might a bit too close to the North Pole for my liking!, apart from being a nice looking plate, the fact that I could put a Hardtail Bridge and Pickup actually on the plate is what attracted me to it!  :-)
