    I think it's also been fairly obvious ever since those high quality no bozos photos were released. Basswood, poplar, or the other usual suggestions just don't have grain like that.
    Locke carves some of the more distinct grain lines in his 5150 bodies, I believe. Particularly the grain lines on the lower left of the guitar body. Basically the most prominent area where you see grain coming through the white paint. At least that's based on the pics I've seen on his IG.

    I'm interested to see how the guys over at EVH replicate the 5150. Still the only Ed guitar I really care about and would care to own if I was a gazilionnaire.

    I don't think that guitar excites anybody here as none of us will be willing to pay what they ask for these.

    But any new or confirmed information is exciting to me.

    Default Kramer 918V question

    Quick question about Ed's 918V backup Kramer:

    Do we know of any photos of the back, or do we just have the front?

    I'm thinking about building a replica/tribute of it (to be different haha) someday and wanted to go ahead and start collecting photos. I haven't really found anything online. Figured this would be the best site to ask

    This is one of the only photos I can find (other than photos from private FB groups) :

    I'm sorry if this isn't the best place for this. I wasn't able to find a more relevant thread, but at least its Kramer/5150 adjacent haha

    No, I dont think there is, or nothing that's been released.... yet...

    I remember the late great David Nesdall once joking on the old Johnny Beane show that he would give someone any one of his guitars if they could produce a photo of the back of it...

    Sure one will pop up one day.

    Hopefully a photo of the back of the Kramer Ad guitar will show up too...
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    I have a few pics of Ed playing the 918V live from 86. There is one good pic that shows a decent chunk of the back and that is what I based my replica on.
