Keep waffling on a few points. Binding - What color? Leaning toward maple since sides and back are dark and will probably tint the top at least a little. Tailpiece - I've found some inexpensive trapeze tailpieces that I don't like. And some expensive ones that I do. Whodda thunk. Or I could go the whole enchilada and carve a wooden one. I reckon I could use some Jotoba I've got lying around (alternatively I could use a piece of granite for much the same experience). But the trapeze sorta seems to fit the prototype. Pickup - A neck/finger rest mounted pickup might be sweet. But I might need to tweak the neck design to provide adequate anchoring surfaces. If I like the sound of the finished guitar I'll wish it had a pickup as well. If I don't - I won't care.
