First build. Thanks!

I joined earlier this Fall and posed a few questions. I wanted to thank those that responded and helped with my first guitar. Figured if I was going to make one, I would make two. One is a gift to my instructor.

Yes, I built these two based on a Gibson J-100 plan. I have attached some more finished pictures.  I have some of the various stages of the build process if interested. Check out audio of my friend playing one.
