    Since we're guitar players in this room I figured this will be the first place I'll look.
    I've decided to build myself a kramer type 5150 striper. My first one was retired cause it eventually fell apart, and it had the strat headstock, which I want to change. I gave the neck to a buddy anyway. I've got a swamp ash body left over from another past project, and I'm going to start routing and painting the base coat this weekend. I've got plenty of pictures to use as prototypes, but what I'm looking for is a kramer style maple neck with a rounded hockey stick headstock, and preferably jumbo frets.
    Before I start looking elsewhere I thought I'd ask one of you guys if you had one you might want to sell.
    Just checking.

    tribb, if you're looking for the type of neck Eddie had in his old Kramers, this place makes good copies of them: www.harpersguitars.com

    I just ordered one of those necks from them. And just so you'll know, you can get the right style body from Gregg Rogers. www.greggrogersguitars.com

    bcgvh, I've got the body I want to use but the necks from the site you gave me (Harper's)look pretty good, and they already have a kramer hockey stick style neck that's priced well too. I'm gonna check that out.
    Thanks a lot bro.

    No reason to. I just get bored easily, and I'm always lookin for things to work on. This is just the next project. I'm not gonna rush it, so it should be finished by the end of summer at the latest. I might just play it for awhile and then sell it and make another.
