    To be more accurate, it's pretty much a Bass VI on the top, not exactly a baritone. It's a bass with six strings. I probably will go to thicker Bass VI strings soon though (currently has baritone strings), I'm thinking about it.
    That's absolutely killer man!!! Think I speak for us all when I say "we wanna hear the fucker!!!" I'm vicariously excited for you--feel like I got the guitar or something!!

    Good to see you around here again!
    Thanks man! Nice of you to chime in! I should log in and post more often than I do. I lurk a lot, but don't log in as much

    Scotty, I have them all and can offer my (underwhelming) opinion. I absolutely LOVE my 5150. I really didn't have to do much to it after receiving it from Sweetwater. Lowered the action just a bit, but either from the factory, or from Sweetwater, it was already pretty set up.

    This might not be what you want to hear, but I honestly don't think the 5150 is really much different than the other Striped Series, except for the Star. Don't get me wrong, it plays and sounds great! I've always been drawn to that guitar as it's always been my favorite. Playability-wise, I really wouldn't say it plays, or feels any better than the Circles, Bee, Frank, or B&W. The Star's a different beast, and a bit awkward to play--especially in the higher frets. The quality of the 5150 is great, and the finish is very nice. I just don't have anything bad to say about it.

    I actually swapped pickups in a few just to change shit up a bit. Have a Pariah Pasadena White in my Bee, the Fender Frankenstein in the Frank (the Frank was modded by Judah Guitars into an almost accurate Frankie replica), and a Pariah Pasadena Black in the 5150. I'm much happier with them that way but don't get me wrong, the stock Wolfgang pickups sounded great.

    All the above is just my opinion, so you may feel differently. Hope this helps in some way.

    Dude, that looks so friggin' cool! I'd definitely give the Bass VI strings a try, especially with a big fat .090 for the low E.
    What are the specs on it? Is the upper body solid or chambered/semi-hollow like the Music Man one?

    Full solid body but lighter than the luthier's Gibson LP. Very light piece of wood this is. Maple top is thicker than the binding, by about %50. 25.5" and 30.2" scales. Tone zone/air norton and SD lipsticks.
