That, is one badass first build.  Nice.

Uh Oh!, it all starts with the first one, which by the way is a "Great Looking Build", But!, sometimes one can turn into one hundred, then two hundred, then three hundred plus, something I learned from personal experience!  :-D

Yes!  Just as Richard said.  Great job.  You got a whole lot right.  The one small thing I see is that your strings are closer together than the way I like them for a GDG type (lots of slide) 3 string. 

That spacing would suit me for a finger chorder like a DGB.  I try to steer new builders to a lesson that helped me most. knotlenny's CBG 101.  Google it or find it under resources at page top.

Good wishes.
