    Default Best parts list

    I am looking to build a 5150 replica (-minus stripes, want some kind of natural finish).

    Can someone give me an ultimate parts list, with prices and where to buy? Doesn't have to be exact, I want it to be a player, so if there is a better chrome trem, that is fine. I want it to sound as close as possible though...want banana neck (with the 5150 cut,like my ebmm, single pickup, floating trem.


    ..or if someone is selling a NON painted 5150 project, let me know!
    Lets just throw a pound of weed in the fire place, f@#% it!

    I would say the title of this thread is misleading because you don't really want an "Ultimate" parts list for a 5150 replica. It sounds like you already have an idea of cheaper parts that you would use.

    Also, all of Ed's tremolos are not floating, even when he used standard Fender tremolo systems though I do understand that you seem to like floating tremolos for your own personal taste.

    I can't vouch for the quality of this kit, but I just came across this a few weeks ago and it looks to be pretty close. You can option an OFR on it.

    If price is not an issue, then Tank2000s recommendations are perfect. I built my own "money is no object" 5150 and it came out great. I used a vintage Floyd Rose unit circa 1984 and I even found the exact 90 degree Gotoh tuners that Eddie used on the original 5150. Go for broke man!
