    Default My 5150type guitar

    I've been on here for a long time, just reading and lurking for the most part. I figured I'd start showing you guys my gear!



    This is my 5150 styled Kramer I built about a year ago. It's like my equivalent to ed's frankie, my main workhorse guitar that sees a crap ton of use and play time Its a Monster!

    Here are the specs:
    -Basswood Musikraft 5150 body
    -Maple Musikraft Banana Neck with EVH back profile. Sealed with Shellac
    -1 volume Pot w/ MXR/Jazz Bass knob
    -Floyd Rose Original Bridge
    -Schaller Tuners
    -Seymour Duncan JB Trembucker
    -My own special design

    This thing screams, I think mainly cause there is very little finish or paint on it


    As an added bonus, here's part of my stage outfit!

    Im not a fan of my playing in this video. it was completely improvised, and I was planning on doing Ed's Live solo, but they said no covers, so I wasnt really sure as to whether I should do it or not, so this is basically me on the spot. Also note the douchebag who commented on it. Whatever...

    Fun Fact: This was at Max's Place (a local venue) in Bloomington, Indiana, where I got to school at IU, and Diamond Dave's birthplace!

    I plan on putting up some more videos of this guitar this weekend when I have more time. Till then, feel free to give me whatever feedback you have!

    I like it! love the matte black paint.

    what time based effects were those? amp? the setup has sort of a Right Here Right Now sound to it. Props for posting brother.

    Thanks! Yeah, I did it all in a week or so. It really is a workhorse guitar. There are some imperfections here and there with the paint job and some dings its acquired through playing shows in peoples basements, airplane travel in a gig bag, and just general college stuff, as well as the fact that its my go to EVH guitar, so it sees the most action of my two axes. That fretboard is grimy as shit! haha

    To answer your question, my setup for the show was simple.
    Cry Baby Wah-> Wampler Pinnacle 2 Distortion -> Ibanez DE-7 (440MS) -> Fender Super Reverb (provided by the venue)

    The Wampler really is Ed tone in a box at some point, I'll get a 5150 III, but until then the Wampler does the job with flying color. Ill post some videos with it going into my Fender PA 135 all tube Amp head this weekend.

    Just remembered I had posted this a while back figured I'd post some pics of the guitar as it looks today. It's definitely aging well!

    lol! Your guitar is the inverse of mine hahahah. It's a Charvel body tho...



    The "GOL" guitar was born on 2009 also and the photo is from the day it got ready. It's now pretty aged also, haha

    I don't want to hijack your thread, so I won't put anymore details...
    But man, I wish I had done an unfinished painting like yours! I regret it to this day!

    I love those raw finishes!
    The guitar resonates so much better than any other guitar I've ever played, its amazing.

    I've been using my Wolfgang Special lately though. Partially because I keep breaking strings on the 5150.

    I think the Wolfgang definitely sounds and played better in Eflat as opposed to standard, for whatever reason.
