    New strings and fretboard cleaning for the DSV.
    Unfortunately The project got put on hold due to injuries sustained.
    I’d be dead in a week if i was a guitar tech! D9151D28-3CE5-42F9-B08A-5F9228C55C68.jpeg 2ECD12F9-4392-4C6D-88C3-2CEB88FED9A4.jpeg B9BA7588-20C4-4B6A-98BB-D605F46519D5.jpeg

    Using a meat cleaver was probably a little heavy handed. :eek::oops::rolleyes:

    new set of 10/52 NYXLs, a good wipe with Lizard Spit, fretboard cleaned with Old English oil and it sounds fantastic. So much twang.
    Im always amazed at the sound of fresh strings. Also ALWAYS annoyed at those sharp ends. Dang that went deep!

    You must suffer for your art.
    I don't think that this is what they meant.

    Take two nurses, I mean two aspirins and go to bed for 24 hours. Your wounds should heal if not you are still going to have a lot of fun and you will forget about your wounds.

    I'm a stage hand---we use gaffer's tape. In the service, we used 100MPH tape. Whatever's on hand...

    WHAT!! Lol... sorry...ARTERY!!
    Sterilization and Pressure...
    bleeding out during a string change is not an option!! Now your gonna need 15 shots in the abdomen so you don’t get scurvy!!
    Or worse yet Vertigo!!!!
    That’s a lot a blood!
    Heal Well..

    Finger much better today. Still aches. It went deep right into the crease of the first joint of my index finger. However... new strings and a good cleaning for the Annie today and not a drop of blood spilled.

    Whatever you do, don't change out the pickups. Those ER costs are murder.;)
