    What needs tweaking?
    As far as how is it, I'm pretty sure most of the forum members go with it because its WAY affordable, and they seem to feel KNE is quality, and reliable. I'd love to know what needs tweaked, as I plan on getting one this summer...

    Hmmmm-
    could you give more details? Sounded on their website like the PU route was ready to go, just wire the PU in...

    Maybe he means the shape of the route? Some 5150 kit bodies have a traditional route that hug the legs of the pickup, which is incorrect on the 5150. It should be rounded. Is that what you meant Alain? I got a 5150 body from a certain someone, and it was perfect in every other way, except for the P/U route. I just rounded them out.

    Hey Alain...Do they make necks yet, and if not who do you recommend for a 5150 neck that fits well with the KNE.

    I'm guessing he does'nt have these any more? Actually scratch that. Does'nt look like the site exists anymore.

    Mitch is the man. I've been gettin bodys from him a long time now.
    Tried to keep him a secret, but he's that good, and people caught on.
    Super dude.
    If your crafty and have the tools, you can make your own banana neck.
    You need your favorite neck and then redo the headstock.
    Yeah. I know. Easier said then done.
