    Remember those cool blue Silver Sky models that came out this year?

    This isn't about one of those.

    New surgical scar day - it's trigger finger surgery time. On the bright side, in a few hours, I should have full motion back in the finger, but I probably won't be playing for another couple weeks. Not that it's any different than right now - I can't bend the finger to play more than barre chords. But this should keep me from becoming a full-time slide player.

    So, even if you've heard me play, if you can spare a good thought today, I'll be getting the Ginsu treatment here in a couple hours. This is my excuse for any gibberish I post later today. Any other day, it's just me.

    Best wishes for a speedy and full recovery!


    Oooh, a pair of Sunglass Hut's finest and then bug Paul to make a PRS Resonator and you'd be all set!

    I’d probably draw something on that finger with a marker to make sure they do the right one just in case...

    Good luck, Alan!

    Curious to hear how this works out for you. Both of my hands like to stiffen up now and thankfully the only finger that locks up from time to time is on my pick hand and not fretting hand.

    Ask the doctor how many PRSes s/he owns. If it's less than 4 cores (or 1 core + 1 PS), run away.

    Rubric can also be applied for selecting a lawyer.

    The way I finger it, you're probably out of surgery by now. Everything well in hand I bet!
    Sorry... I'm just being a knucklehead.
    Excuse me... I have to go backup my old Palm Pilot to a thumb drive...
