    Default 5150 and Hot For Teacher (tribute)

    Hey guys, been awhile but thought I'd share just two of the projects I've finished recently. I had a couple of 5150 bodies and necks laying around so I thought I'd give HFT (forgive the incorrect pickup slant and neck, it was a garbage build) and here's the latest 5150 of mine.

    These look great! Nice job on the relicing. Where did you get the bodies?

    thanks guys! The bodies are a Musikraft for the HFT and a KNE reshaped for the 5150.

    Haha, Dutchie, I even have my wall striped VH1.

    Awesome. I love them. You know mrbond my HFT was also a pacer straight pickup and I just took my dremel tool and slightly routed a little extra on the top left and lower right corners and was able to slant the humbucker so it looks right. Gives the allusion of the Barretta body too. Good for thought as its only a 20 minute project and will allow you to slant the PUP if you want. If not no worries it looks freakin smokin bro.

    Very cool! Is that ReRanch Fiesta Red lacquer on the 5150? It looks bang on man!
    I've not used either of these guys...What needed reshaping on the 5150 body to make it right? Lol. Excuse my ignorance.

    Well the KnE had a weird upper horn. Like it was too overweight. An easy sand down and it turned out to be a cool body to work on.

    Thanks!

    I'm gonna do a 5150 build soon, do you guys recommend Fiesta Red from ReRanch? Is it any good?

    haven't tried that color to be honest. But all my experiences from ReRanch have been stellar.

    That's good to know, because I was having trouble finding a local supplier of spray paint, and was considering ReRanch.
