I have just finished my latest build. There is still some work to do, like lowering the action etc, but I have stringed it and tested it. I only had the 4-5-6 strings from a kit  for electric guitar which I tried on. It is a short scale length, only 18", so the tuning that works best with these strings is CGC. 

I am satisfied this far but will keep tweaking the build. Adding a pick-up of course and maybe get other strings.
