Just strung her up. I like the sound a lot. It came with acoustic strings but I swapped them out with some old electric guitar strings I had laying around. I'm getting some buzz on the low G so I still have some work to do but... YEEHAW!

I had a similar problem on my very first build, & solved it like this...

Great to see the finished guitar, looks fantastic with that excellent paint job and tidy build. Like the finish on the neck too! Cracking job, hope you have a lot of fun with it.

Glad it sounds good!  I hope the string tree cures that buzz.

Thanks guys. Sounds really good acoustic and plugged in. I should be able to get some clips made this weekend.

I've still got a little bit of work to do on her. The lo-G buzzes slightly and when I put just a little pressure past the nut it stops. I need to makeshift a string retainer of some type. Also, I used old guitar strings and D and hi-G intonate quite well. The lo-G is always a bit sharp past the 3rd fret or so. I need to mess with the bridge and see if I can correct this. Overall though, she's playable and the git sounds great.

Flames turned out great & a nice clean build. Hope we hear it too :)
