This is the 'tweaked' and semi- final version. I borrowed fret board ideas from a git of Justin Mills that I like.
I scrapped the idea of my first ever magnetic pickup because the neck inside the box was in the way.
There was 'Arts In The Parks' today in our town today and I took it and played more than an hour.. Plugged and unplugged (piezo) it played easy and well.
And it sounded good. The doubled middle string gives it a bit more volume and a nice bit of jingle jangle. I think a lot of folks would leave it be.
I may end up removing the small D string. Maybe it is just because the sound is not what I am used to, but I think I will like it better with my personal fave GDG tuning.
The doubled middle string idea is worth doing.
