Almost finished my first (non-kit) CBG of my own design.  It's a fretted three-string, and will likely end up with a piezo-pickup option.  Have not used any fret markers yet, nor cut any sound holes.  Tone actually seems pretty OK with no holes, and it's a really clean look.

I counterbored to recess the screw-together tuners, leaving the main headstock at 3/4".  Used a 5/8" Forstner bit in a hand drill to c'bore about 3/16" deep.

Some tweaking remains to be done, but I think it was a good first attempt!
