    I was just wondering what is the size of the largest white stripes,and also the black ones on the 5150.My guess would be 1/2" for the white and may be 3/4" for the black ones.

    yes the largest white stripes are 1\2" on the front but 3\4" on the back, I use 3\4" as a base for the black stripes but they were actually reverse masked and are different sizes, matter of fact most of them are larger at one end than the other,
    notice the black stripe coming from the neck at an angle down the body and also the black stripe from the pickup.

    Also on a side note if you take a straight edge to the black stripe that runs under the floyd you'll see it isn't straight, I have a picture of that guitar before it had the 5150 on it, it looks as if they started that stripe then stopped then restarted it at a differnt angle, it's hard to tell on photos that have the 5150 on it cause the "0" is covering that spot up, there is also a rather large drop of black paint on the bottom of that thing .
    take a look:

    oh all the white stripe sizes are as follows :
    1\2"
    1\4"
    3\16"
    1\8"

    I have a diagram with all the stripe sizes labal on the guitar but my scanner is pure crap, you can tell if you take a scale to the stripes on the picture, it's hard to eyeball the difference between 1\4" and 3\16" the others are easy to spot.
