Pleeease tell me what you think!

What do you think?!
Iím a sculptor and this is my most recent work... Itís a 12 string touch style much like a Warr, Stick, Megatar, etc... Itís only my second guitar build and my first guitar was only a 6 string so be gentle...... I pretty much wanted to build this upon hearing Behold... The Arctopus for the first time...... I modeled much of the set up and schematics after the touch style instruments that Kevin Siebold (Krappy Guitars) builds because he was kind enough to explain some things to me but mostly due to my lack of knowledge in building touch style instruments...... but I obviously went my own route on the shape..... Keep in mind!.. I have yet to put a finish on the wood so itís still bare... Itís the only step left... but it is entirely playable.... The build time is roughly a month and a half and was essentially a summer project

Any thoughts or questions are welcome from anyone willing to share them..

It actually sounds quite good... I got everything set up and tried it out and it was surprising.. A very nice warm, rich tone... and its a ton more responsive than I expected it to be... based on what Ive heard about some of these instruments...... but.. Ive been very busy and havent had a chance to tweak it all and get my own sound with it so ill just have to see..... I might have samples.. eventually.. hahaha... at the moment I have not the means of recording... but thanks for your thoughts!
