    Default 5150 build neck question

    Hi all, I have a 5150 that Rols made years ago. He really did excellent work, but the guitar fell off a wall swing and the neck broke. I知 taking this as an opportunity to try to replace the neck myself. I ordered a new one from Muiskraft (back profile evh 81 91) and I found the awesome templates Jedi McFly created. The only thing I知 finding mixed information is on the paint colors. It looks like Fiesta Red was the go to, back in the day, but is no longer made. What I知 finding is Krylon Banner red, Glossy White and Glossy Black.
    Are people usually happy with MusiKraft? Is this neck profile similar to the Music Man? And are the paint selections fairly accurate? Any thoughts and advice on the new neck and paint would be appreciated (I always do well learning from other痴 mistakes and successes).
    Thanks!

    Thanks for the info! Do you believe the white and black are glossy or flat?
