First guitar build - something a little different.

Update, I've reapplied the danish oil - I'll let this harden and then use it to prevent any flame chip out during sanding.

So there's some issues - neck-string angle, I recessed the jack the wrong way to the way the upwards facing jack is meant to sit so that needs sorting. And the nut + frets need sorting but I miss playing it so here it is for a bit..

So I've repeatedly intonated, corrected, measured the fretboard frequencies against my calculated frequencies - apart from a couple of lifting frets which I'll ignore for now - the intonation error for a fret for any string is at maximum 0.28%. I think that will do for now :D
