Help with guitar info...

When I was young, I bought my first electric guitar for $20 from a friend of
mine in Ohio. I've had others since, but have held on to it for nostalia
sake. Its parts are pretty beat up at this point and I'd like to do what I
can to refurbish it. However, after all these years I still don't know the
guitar's make, model or anything! I was hoping that you might be able to
help (I'm not that knowledgable about guitars, so I'll do my best to
describe it accurately.):
As I said, it's an electric. It has a V-shaped body, black with a
white-stripe border, mimicking the V-shape. The "head" is that sort of
scalene-triangle shape, with the tuning machines aligned on the left.
Additionally, the only distinguishing script on the guitar - that I know
of - is "State of the Art", written in white cursive on the head, parallel
to the tuning machines.
Unfortunately, that's all I can really tell you. It's surely some inferior
off-brand. But, regardless, i respect it and would like to do what I can to
save it. Any assistance that you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time!

Re: Help with guitar info...

Anyone using a preamp with a Vox Ac 30?

hi all,
i'm thinking about buying a Vox AC30, and i was wondering if/how could i connect it with my Soldano preamps.
Does someone had/have a similar issue, even with some other preamps?
i know that the AC30 has a great 'compatibility' with fx processors, so i was wondering "what about preamps"? Does people as The Edge use serial wiring?
Any opinion appreciated.

thanks in advance,
Faisal

Thanx

You should go to WWW.FARMFRIENDS.COM to meet other pigs, this is a guitar site

Hey porky, is your middle name Nance ??? thought so.

They sound like incubus and finger 11..
I think i saw a tab for them in tabcrawler, but im not sure..
laters
Rick

Re: Yea iv heard of them

They are pretty good I think. I have like 10 songs of them but I can't find any cd of them...
If you ever find the cd tell me. See you

Re: Any Heard Of This Band "The Livid"

I'm about 2 months late for this, but I'm gonna post anyway.

I've heard of The Livid. I think they totally rock.

Just to set the record straight. They have 2 CD's out right now. King of the Castle and Fear of Fading. I think at the time of the original post they only had King of the Castle and a demo cd released.

I saw tabs for "Falling Behind", off of the King of the Castle cd, somewhere once, but I don't remember where. I emailed the guys about tabs and they sent me guitar tabs for "Egzit", off of the Fear of Fading cd. So if the person who originally posted about The Livid reads this, just email them and get some tabs. And if you get tabs for a song other than "Egzit" I'd appreciate it if you'd share them with me and I'll send you the tabs I have.

Re: Any Heard Of This Band "The Livid"

hey well .. i was wondering if the livid have a website? i heard them a while back ..and liked what i heard but .. haven't been able to find any information on the band. so if anyone has their website or a email address i can have to find out info about them please reply or email me.. thanx bye :)

Re: Any Heard Of This Band "The Livid"

hey man they do have a website, its www.thelivid.com but it doesnt really have anything right now becuase they are looking for a new singer. and if you find other sites about the livid please email them to me at therenothreat@hotmail.com

Re: Any Heard Of This Band "The Livid"

Hello, just a quick briefing on the boys for a small town in Toronto....

They found an awesome new singer in Justin Humes. A BRAND SPANKING new drummer we call "Adam Benning" and a really cool bass player named Rob(last name to be discussed later). Chris Schembri(guitar) is still currently with the band, and rocking with those awesome licks as usual.

Sites :www.thelivid.com(awesome site)
www.purevolume.com/thelivid

Hopefully that helped! Enjoy!

looking for blues and jazz guitarist

Im from Poland and Im looking for other guitarist who could help me to learn about blues and jazz music.

Do you have a rred rubber dush bag for me?

Hey Sambo, what about this post ???

Ya dumb ass !!

You complain about my post, but obviously you have
a "a rred rubber dush bag" for this guy. You gonna send him your mothers ?

Guess this is 'of value' to you.

Get a clue you 'dush bag' !!!

Re: looking for blues and jazz guitarist

: I don't know what you are doing in poland but just jam with them, thats the best way to learn.

I am currently just yanking my crank and that is becoming more of a pain. Hence the effort to locate jazz musicians in the area. Your comment is of absolutly no value which is on par with all your efforts. So thanks for nothing Steve and perhaps you should yank your crank as it would be much more fruitful that your interspertions on this board.

Re: looking for blues and jazz guitarist

How did you learn blues and jazz ? I learned the most by playing with others that were better than me, was much more effective than sitting home by myself and 'yanking the crank' as you do. Why is that worthless advice ? please tell us how you learned then since you seem to be mister smarty pants ?

Your posts only critize mine, so how are they of any use ? or are you just jealous cuz I got the groove ?

Re: looking for blues and jazz guitarist

Probally why you are in poland is because you suck ! You can't even find a jazz musician ??? incredible, not at the universities or clubs ?? Are you so pathetic you can't even find some dudes to sit in with ? Glad I haven't ever been in your shoes, I would hate to suck like you.

Heres some real advice, you should stick to crank yanking as that is probally the only skillz ya have, but don't talk or brag about it in public, while you might be proud to tell others about your frequent mastrubation escapades, in reality it just makes you look/sound pathetic.

Do they reall have kilbasa in poland ??

Maple neck going green

I've just bought a 2 year old Ibanez rg550 which has a maple neck. I love it loads but the maple neck is starting to get abit green on the edges. I always make sure my hands are clean before even touching it. Can anyone help with advise to prevent or get rid of it. cheers

Re: Maple neck going green

Thats happened on my teles w/maple necks, it's just the finish wearing off from strings going the edges and general wear and is pretty normal, lighter fluid will get the green out but it will still be dark, you can clean it and touch up with some poly/nitro or whatever finish you got, but it really isn't anything 'bad', pretty normal for a maple neck, some people actually pay to have necks that look all worn, I'am in the camp that ya gotta do it yourself, and the edges is where it starts.

Re: Maple neck going green

Well you might be able to get the superficial grunge off with a good oil soap like murphay"s then I would protect it with either light mineral oil or tounge oil.

if the soap does not work you may need to result to emery cloth or even steel wool.
