First CBG Build!!!

Today I have finally gathered all my supplies to start building my first CBG. I'm not gonna lie, it's a pretty ambitious build. I'm setting out to build me a 6-string beauty. Now I bet many of you experienced builders and players are shaking your heads right now, feeling that i'm biting off way more than i can chew. Don't be too worried, I've done tons of research through these forums and have even spoken with some luthiers and local instrument repairers on the matter. Granted, I'm expecting to make a mistake here and there along the way, but this is all a learning experience. Anywho wish me luck, and I will be posting pics of my build, (or the beginnings of it) soon!
