    While waiting to post a NGD thread I tough it would be cool to share the progress in my Padalka Neptune 7 build. As a side note I can only recommend Simon to work with! Such a nice guy, super serious and available to all the questions you need to ask! My best experience with an indépendant luthier so far!

    Now for the specs:

    Neptune 7
    Black limba body
    Macassar ebony top
    Wenge/maple 5p neck
    25.5-26.5 scale
    Birdseye maple fretboard with macassar ebony binding and offset markers
    Maple side markers
    Fokin majestic pickups

    Looks great! Just about the specs I would order on a neptune. Still amazed at the killer pieces of wood he gets his hands on.

    ......that body shape has literally caused a pants tentpole into a vicious mayonnaise fondue fountain explosion...

    Seriously if a guitar could be an exotic foreign sports car it would be that. Those lines...man..very nice

    Interesting that Andre the Giant and Wierd Al were the first men you thought of when commenting on an “O” face moment from someone else:scratch:
