    Default What ever happened to Ed's 5150 Kramer Guitar?

    my favorite Ed guitar is the old 5150 Kramer. I know Ed pretty much stopped playing it live after 88, it was rumored he was going to bring it out on the balance tour but it never made it to the stage. that is the last thing I remember about that guitar. I'm just wondering if anything ever happened to or of it was used on anything in later years.

    He plugged it in. Saying he played it is a stretch.

    That was savage, DD.

    The neck pocket had to get widened in '04 to accept the Charvel neck. Then it got a temporary neck with a striped fretboard before the original neck was put back on it. It was pictured in January/February 2014 issue of Guitar Aficionado magazine and seen in various pictures at 5150 and Ed's home afterwards.

    The 5150 would be the guitar Id pick if I was given the choice of any of his guitars to own.

    If he still had the 58 V or 59 Lester, maybe one of those would get picked before the 5150 but it would be a tough decision.

    On the subject of which one of Eddie's guitars would I pick to own...I gotta go with the black and white guitar from the Oakland '81 Unchained video. There's just something about that one that I think is so cool. But hell, I'd take any guitar. Ha ha.

    The "Unchained" guitar was repainted years ago and eventually given to Dweezil Zappa.

    It's now called the "Rasta"

    Beauty is life when life unveils
    her holy face.

    But you are life and you
    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.

    Might not be as iconic as the Franky, but I do prefer the 5150 guitar over the Franky.

    So do I.

    Ive never really had a desire to make a red, black, and white Frankie replica. Im just not a huge fan of that guitar. Im a huge fan of what Ed did with it, but it just looks like a mess to me. I much prefer when it was black and white. Plus you come to learn that so much of the iconic stuff that Ed recorded was done with guitars other than Frankie, like the pre-chainsaw Destroyer.
