Hey folks.
Long time lurker, first time poster. I have been wanting to build my own acoustic for some time so in February I bought the OM kit from stewmac and started the process.
I just got it back from my local luthier for the final setup. I had low expectations for it being my first build but I am pleasantly surprised. It's a joy to play and actually sounds great.
A huge thank you goes out to this community! The knowledge I gained from this forum has been crucial to my project.

I made a few modifications to the kit. It's not perfect but I'm looking forward to doing another some day.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
