I absolutely love this one.  I don't see a thing that is not just right.  Paddle head stock, saw marks on the finger board, wood tones - good match between box and neck.  Nice cigar box.  Nebraska Girl.  Love that.  Interesting sound holes.  Probably just right.  F holes would not have fit.  I am envisioning that box before you made it into a guitar.  I would have worried about ...  messing up a cool piece of art.  You did not mess it up.  You enhanced it and let it make music.  Even the strap fits.  Highest 9s I have seen in 2021.
