    Default Recent Builds

    Hey guys, I've been toiling away at these two builds for literally almost a year. I'm proud to say I've just completed them!

    All the accouterments are as close in parts to the real deal as I could get.

    Without much words, here are the builds!

    This is the best 5150 I have ever seen.

    You even have the 2 smaller saddles.

    That Malmsteen Duck you had made was incredible but this tops it.

    Excellent work.

    Is that a crack going by the high e screw post?

    Is that to mimic the one on the real deal?

    No that's just a scratch. The crack I think youre talking about is on the b tuner. I put that in.

    Sort of. I wanted to do pre headstock breaking so I just put a gap there. Hard to see if there's no glare.




    Also here's a closer of the back

    Thanks a lot guys! It was many, many hours at the bench with an xacto blade listening to Stern.

    Casey- how's that holding up? It feels like ages ago!
