    Not seen since last April. His build threads/NGDs were always incredible, if not miraculous. Anyone know him personally or have any other leads on his unpostage?

    If you read this, Pondy... You are sincerely missed. Hope all is well.

    Word. I first took an interest in building from seeing his "had an afternoon spare so knocked out 16 amazing builds" threads. Hopefully that router injury didn't put him out of it.

    Hes probably locked away in his shop until he emerges with another 100 successive NGDs.

    I'm just wondering why he can't hurry that up. Come on, Pondman. I can't live vicariously through you if you aren't showing me pictures of guitars I'll never own.

    Hope all is well with him. Hopefully the injury didn't turn out much worse for him. Hope he's out there somewhere, building guitars out of scraps.

    His return will break SSO.

    He's probably on a remote island in the Pacific Ocean somewhere and soon he's going to emerge on a beach in Southern California, straddling a double bass made out of a palm tree and paddling with an Aristides 080 made of coconut fibers.

    pondman is the SSO luthier god. All of us should learn from him and build more/post less. Especially in my case :lol:

    Yeah, it's been far too long since I've seen those big titties around here. Hope all is well.

    I hope he's ok and nothing has happened. That someone said he also hasn't updated his Facebook page as well is concerning. Has anyone sent him a message on FB?

    Was he even a real man? It does not matter. What matters is the Pondman we all keep in our hearts.

    Been wondering myself for quite awhile now. I sure hope everything is okay!

    I mean, is he even a real pond?!
