Help me to live.


I make custom guitar wiring harnesses and I'm pretty damn good at it!

Allow me to say one thing:

SRV'S NUMBER 1.

That is all.

Dude! With the thread title "Which replica should I do??" the expectation was that you had done your research ... or at least gotten the basics such as source, colors, etc. It should've been "How do I make a replica of Lenny or SRV 1 or JM's Black Strat??"

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

You could buy the body from the usual licensed suppliers (direct online) or used Fender parts from eBay. The challenge with the Lenny is the Mandolin body inlay near the bridge.

Copy PGs are all over the place or you can paint them yourself (more satisfying).

As far as bridges, make sure you get the proper lefty for the SRV 1 ... all the originals have the hefty trem block.

Good Luck!

So does anyone know what color it is so I can buy the paint?

The original finish of Lenny was a 3T Sunburst, was stripped, then finished with a Dark Brown stain. Stain forms a layer like regular paint, unlike dyes, which get absorbed by the wood. So, look for a Dark Brown stain, you'll have to do a trial and error thinning it to get the color just right.
#16
So will the dark brown stain be enough or will i have to have sunburst on it?

under the bridge isn't actually a decal, its a piece of tooled leather inlayed. if you have the money you could go to a local leather worker and have them replicate one for you.
