Thanks guys.

Uncle John, I agree. Once finished I was thinking it could have done with more space there. Next time.

Wow! That's a heckuva first. Nicely done.

A very "Classy (Aussie) Build", and ditto Unc's comments!   :-)

Holey buckets! That is a first build? Looks fantastic. High 9s. The only change I would wish for is a bit more distance between the nut and nearest tuner. I have a theory (BS theory?) that more distance there give better down pressure and reduces string hop and problems. Great job. Check out knotlenny's CBG 101 for playing tips. Google it or find it under resources at page top.
