Looks great, Jeff! If you are using a digital camera, there is a setting for web upload pictures. The pictures are properly sized. No resizing!

Jeff, what kind of camera is it, what computer and what software are you using?
I can't get anything but thumbnails...

A bit of a flaw in the fit.

Sorry, don't know what a galaxy note 3 is.
I use Photoshop, size them at 12" and they usually come out a good size on the forum. Still think yours could be larger.
Keep trying!

It's just a phone Haans , any critique on the guitar. It's my third and I'd really like to get better at this.

Thanks Hesh, I'm pleased with it. I love Steve's design on the head stock. Having a great teacher is really a blessing. Jigs ,molds ,tools not a worry.
I'm designing a new style for my next build. We'll see how that comes out.

Jeff, looks very nice! Not my style, but as far as I can see (photos) looks very good.
I would probably reduce the depth of the binding a bit, but that is just my opinion. I like a binding that is around 3/16" without purfling and 1/4" including BWB below it. If I were to guess, yours looks like it is 1/4"+ maybe.
Otherwise, I'd say you are making a modern guitar the right way, far as I know...some kind of poly or waterbase finish?
How did the ebony bend? I'm about to bend a Malaysian Blackwood set...

How does it sound?

Haans yes water base finish, the ebony was a very easy bend with a heating blanket. Thanks for your comments.
