One little screw in the right place seemed to stop the buzzing and help with the intonation all at once. Nice!

Good on that intonation fix. Hey, I have a suggestion for you. First off, you are building nice stuff and I can see you are trying to do things 'right'. But for me and a lot of the CBG world, it is not wrong to wind those strings from the 'wrong' side. Your outer two strings would have been a much straighter shot if you had wound them from the outside. I guess what I am saying is 'Function over form."

And again, I like the railroad year spike on the head stock.

After messing with it some more last night, I got it where it intonates pretty darn well across all 3 strings. I'm loving the feel of the git. I hope to get some video/audio clips this weekend.

Good! 

I had one recently that I never did get rid of the buzz and stripped it down for parts.
