Beautiful craftsmanship (as always).

It looks like it could weight a bit, but not Les Paul heavy.

What scale length did you go for?

How did you decide to tune it? I assume it is a chromatic scale?

An any case, fine build. When are you posting audio clips?

Hi Tom, appreciate the nice comments, thanks. It's not all that heavy really, just a bit awkward to rest on the knee to play. I have scolloped out the end of the fingerboard cos that's where my thumb likes to place itself when picking, and I will fit an armrest to make things more comfortable.

The scale is still 25" but moved the nut north so as to have a better position for the bridge. That meant a longer neck and fingerboard. Normal guitar fretting using GDG tuning. I will do a sound test tomorrow.
