    Thanks! :cheers:

    So, still in discussion as to what top, although right now I'm between a natural burled maple and painted flame top.

    Other than that:

    25.5"-27" scale
    Macassar Fingerboard with Maple binding
    Luminlay side dots
    Mahogany Body
    7 piece Wenge/Mahogany Neck
    BKP Rebel Yell Set
    Compound radius
    Black Hipshot hardware
    Wood knobs/plates/bobbin covers (still debating wood, leaning toward Wenge)

    Right on man, sounds great! I'm excited to see what Simon can do this year. I am really fighting the urge to just order a Saturn but I want to hold out until I hear the verdict on the Ennea SC headless I want built

    Yeah I can understand that. I really love both the Saturn and the Ennea. I was heavily considering a Wenge topped Saturn for this build. I think my next guitar purchase is going to be headless, and am definitely interested to see how that SC comes out, if he moves forward with it. It's tough not to jump on that open queue though.

    Indeed it is, but luckily I've got a Neptune making its way to me right now so that'll hold me over for a while :lol:
