Thanks, gents. It was a lot of fun engineering the tuning head arrangement. Combining that with a box design and wood selection I hadn’t used before made it a bit of a mystery as to how it would sound and feel. I’m having fun with it, and greatly appreciate the feedback from folks who know a whole bunch more about any of this than I do.

I agree on the cedar.  I had a couple cedar topped Seagull - made in Canada guitars and they sounded great.  The possible downside being they easily showed scratches.  My last built CBG has a cedar top and it yields nice tone and big volume.

Great job of engineering Bruce. I love cedar for lightness and tone.

Great  and clean looking guitar.  Nice body shape and rollers.  Nice tone too!
