Very nice neck transition into the body, must have taken a while doing that. Do I note a slight neck angle of about 1 and a bit degrees?

Just wanted to say how much I admire the craft that is going into this - stunning.

Also, I am a huge fan of the design decisions on this. That trem system will be great, the headstock design is really clever for straight string-pull and the neck joint looks really accessible. Love your work.

Now I see what you meant. I suppose neck 'integration' into the body is allowed for in your design. Could not do it with mine. Have to shape heel first before I glue in place.
