Looks like the flatpup reads 1.5 on the Ohm meter whatever that means. (I'm new to an Ohm meter)

Thanks guys! Got the tiny chainsaw sharpening file out and filed down the 4th fret and that killed 90% of the buzz I was getting. May do a bit more today.  Now it plays and sounds just fine. I plan on making one for myself. Started to get the hang of the DGbd tuning and I really like it.
