    Default Review on the Divebomb Inc 5150

    Communication; Kyle is a great guy to deal with. Super responsive to emails, questions about the product and willing to customize when asked.
    Grade: A

    Price; NA, the guitar and paintjob was done on a trade basis. I took a look at the prices published on his site and they are very competitive for the product that you get.
    Grade: A

    Quality; the guitar is great product. I asked for a custom profile on the neck and Kyle was able to pull it off with ease. The fit and finish of the neck was exactly was as I asked for with regards to frets and such. The neck pocket is a hair larger than the actual neck, however, when Iím playing, is not noticeable.

    The body was made of alder, and as far as paint, pickup alignment and setup, it came great. The trem was setup pretty stiff, which is how I like it, so that was not a big deal. Kyle puts a deep route on the pickup cavity, which may or may not be replica spec, so if you prefer it a different way, make sure you ask. The only thing I could find wrong was on the 5150 Eddie used and many other 5150 bodies, where the neck attaches to the body there is notch where the trem wheel is on the new Wolfgang, however, on Kyleís guitar, it isnít there.
    Grade: A-/B+ depending on how replica spec you are going

    Sound/Playability; it sounds killer. I have a Custom Custom in there and it screams. The guitarís action is set low from Kyle, and guitar plays and sounds great. It is a seriously fun guitar to play and Iím sure Iím going to enjoy the guitar for years to come.
    Grade; A

    Overall; The questions of replica spec notwithstanding, Kyleís got a good thing going on and if your in the market for what he is selling, he at least deserves a look.

    That's because Kyle's guitars are set up perfect and require no adjustments ... ever.

    Seriously though, it's not a big deal but I'm just curious if this was intentional or an oversight?

    Sounds like you got a killer guitar.
    Congrats!

    Dammit Janet... I mean Dino, Why you gotta call me to the matt like that. I left it off on purpose because this was a factory finish project and I thought it would look better. It's too pretty to be an exact replica anyway.

    personally I like it. The notch on guitars that have a clear coat on them look a little funny

    It's a beautiful guitar Kyle ...
    It was just a bit of sarcastic humor on my part.
    Guess it wasn't that funny.

    I meant no disrespect.

    Dude, no worries... that kind of sarcasm is welcomed. I do try to set them up right in the hopes that nothing has to be done by the customer and sometimes it actually works out.
