    Default Kramer Neptune guitar

    Well guys,

    heres one I have never done before. Been building EVH replicas for almost 20 years and I have never attempted this one. Never really cared for it much up until a year and a half ago when I saw it in person in Hollywood, CA at the Hard Rock Cafe..... ever since then I have loved the thing. The Kramer Neptune guitar. Story is that when Paul Unkert built it he was totally pissed off that Ed took it and put the black on it and completely ruined the paint job.... ha ha great story that was confirmed by some close friends of mine that know Paul...

    either way here is my attempt at the Kramer Neptune guitar. Just finished the body today and the neck will be coming in soon. Had all the parts laying around and I might put a better floyd on it soon (original German). The sploog, runny lines were sooooo fun to paint. What a mess... she should be done within a couple weeks. Check her out. Kramer Neptune...

    Rob

    next up is another Kramer ad guitar. I upgraded the body and have a Chris Locke "Walker style" body with the big horns coming and that will be it as my financial state won't allow for much more lol. This body I used for the neptune was my old Kramer ad body so it worked out perfectly. So the Neptune and Kramer ad are in the works now and that'll do it. I'll post pics of the new Ad guitar and Neptune when they are finished.

    I'll have my old complete collection back. Been doing a lot of work to my existing collection too. Re-painted my 1984 neck to look like the 84 tour, did a blue Kramer striped headstock and just re-taped my Kramer multi tape guitar again too.

    Neptune guitar looks killa! Love it! And I've seen Paul Unk talk about Ed letting the black drip. It's on YT somewhere. I didn't have interest in those Kramers. This one, Kramer ad Franky. Even the Hot For Teacher Kramer. The Shark as well. I was only interested in the real Franky and the Kramer 5150. I've grown to like them all now and considered buying a Kramer ad Franky and a HFT I saw for sale recently. And I stalk ways to build a Shark. Your collection is awesome! Neptune might be my fave of the Kramers. Well, second to the 5150 Kramer.

    Nice job Rob. I always like seeing that collection.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    I just did the neck front and back. I'll snap a pic of the back today. Thanks guys. Really appreciate all the comments. The Neptune has to be the most fun I've ever had. Found a few little tricks making the drips too. No wonder Unk was pissed when Ed messed up the black lines. Totally ruined it back then but today it is really awesome. Amazing huh?

    fuddman... I sent you a PM on the floyd.
