right well, i blocked my ibanez RG570 edge trem because i never pull up and i change tunings frequently, couldnt find any wood so i just used 2 pennies and some blue tac to hold it in place

here's the pic:



now, for the fist of my questions

the neck that i have was repaired and where it cracked theres a slight residue build up of some kind of black ****, anyway, i wanna clean that out and make the crack as invisible as possible, i don't mind sanding etc

i don't want to buy another neck because its the EX version of the rg570 which is hard to come by

pic:



my other question is this, the guitar is beaten up with it being basswood and all so want to fix some of the dents etc, now i have i idea of how to do that (wood filler then sand down to shape) but the colour matching is a problem. a who;le body respray isn't the problem, its the fact the headstock is blue. any ideas or tips would be appreciated on how i could get them to match

pics of general guitar for colour etc:

NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM ED ROMAN! The guy is a FRAUD, ASSHOLE, and sells CRAP. How bad is that crack? Some are superficial, some aren't. If it doesn't hurt the guitar keep using it. You may also be able to use a syringe to inject some glue into the crack.

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.

Dude...not even cool. He's one of the few honest guys left in the business. I've sold a few vintage Deans to him and he's a great guy to work with. He tells it straight and honest. He doesn't try to sell you everything in the store, I hate when people do that... Hell some people try to sell you the ink off their business cards

TS, this isn't the Pit. Replies don't come flooding in after 2 minutes...Anyway, about that crack: sand it smooth so the gunk will come off, then tape off an area around it and spray on some lacquer. Careful, though, 'cause Nitro won't go on top of Poly (or it may be the other way around, can't remember).

All I can say about the body repair is fill it and sand flush. You MAY be able to send it to Ibanez and pay to have it resprayed the same color. Prolly won't be cheap.
