2nd guitar

I just got my second guitar back from being fixed. I've got a name for my other guitar (Jessica), but not one for this one. I really should come up with a name for it, but all my attempts have been lame and full of failure. But I shall endeavor to come up with one. But the way, it is a Soapbar II by PRS. If you can come up with something, just leave me a post, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hernia Sandwich

I just had my hernia surgery today and it was great fun. I'm in a little bit of pain but nothing too bad. I've got this little ball of pain killing that runs in a little tube through the incision point. It keeps the pain down.

The surgery went very smoothly I guess and was right around two hours. Had to go in at 6am though, so that kind of sucked. But... survived and all is well.

Jessica's Surgery

I picked up Jessica (my Peavey guitar) today from Hoffman Guitar. They said they couldn't find anything wrong with it though they adjusted the pickups and when I picked it up, it sounded a helluvalot better to me...so for 31 bucks I was fine with the tone improvement.

I also dropped off my PRS Soapbox II and am getting a setup done on that. Also, the G-string kept detuning during shows and that was getting pretty annoying so they're going to check into that.

Only one day left of work until I have 11 off in a row. Yippeekayeaah!

Uh...no Brokeback.

Surgery Coming Up

I've got a damn hernia. Yippecayay!
Surgery is a week from Monday and actually I'm very excited because I've got a week off of work because of it. Many video games will be played, but I'm also happy 'cuz I'm finally gonna set up my home studio again and throw down some tracks. Hopefully much music will be written too.

My poor little guitar Jessica" is going into the shop because something's wrong with the high-end pickup. It's very tinny and very little is being picked up by the...well...pickup. Boo hoo. So...that's about it.

Oh Yeah, I've been listening to an assload of Jeff Buckley lately. That always happens to me. I just go through a phase. Been listening a lot to The Mystery White Boy tour CD and the 2nd CD of Sweetheart. I love New Year's Prayer. Man, we were so robbed! That record that he was working on was going to be amazing. I can just feel it. Most of the tracks aren't done--they're not developed fully, but he was pushing at his sonic boundraries and moving forward at a startling pace. Makes me sad. But...hey, if I die and go to heaven, I hope he'll be there with like a hundred CD's for me to go through. Well...I can keep wishing anyway...not that I want to die any time soon, but...urgghhh...I sense the onset of babbling...must go.
