    Hey guys, I ordered a 5150 neck from MK a few weeks ago, and I know there is a lead time of 4-8 weeks! but anyone here has been lucky enough to get it sooner??

    Hey don't they sell complete 5150 bodies? Was thinking of getting one and doing a Bumble Bee Custom with banana head stock also painted Bumble Bee style. Or I can just strip down the 5150 and have it painted like Bumble Bee

    Yeah they do sell 5150 bodies but I got mine from Chris @ Locke custom guitars(the same guy I got the franky body and it was dead-on), but for a bumble bee id go for a Charvel style body that they sell.

    I've come across a website that sells really cheap kits ($174) based on the 5150 shape. I want to test these out and see how they fair, and I was thinking of doing a Bee guitar. I think it would look super cool on the body shape with the banana headstock!

    Of course I would get a new pickup, probably a Seymour Duncan '59, but I've recently heard good things about the Custom Custom.

    I'm either thinking of doing a Bee, or possibly an original design. Not sure yet.

    The Charvel VH II was made of ash, not mahogany.
