No GAS right now as I need to start saving for back surgery

Have had major pain for a while, found out I had a ruptured disc so got a nerve blocker & cortisone injection but it didn't work. Went back this week to see my Orthopedic surgeon and now I'm in line for a L5/S1 Discectomy. Oh the joy
Ouch! Is this an injury from the powerlifting days?

Yeah, it's old but not directly from powerlifting/weight training. Just something that's always been 'there' and very occasionally flares up; have been suffering with it this time around for around 4 or 5 months with it gradually getting worse. Don't want to have to rely on painkillers, which have now become a near daily thing unfortunately :(

Always something I'm gassing for but met a guy today to see about a deal on his Les Paul. Made me want a Les Paul. Funny that.

Excuse me while I open this can of worms I've just retrieved from a rabbit hole.

I’d quite like something a bit pointy for a change

Probably just a phase, I’m sure it will pass

Shouldn't have sold a lot of things but if I didn't I couldn't inch my way up. That said, with prices the way they are there's gear I've let go that I'm unlikely to be able to afford again. Still, I've a better rig than I can justify so need to be grateful for that.

Absolutely nothing

Loving the LP, my old Strat scratches the Hendrix itch nicely and I probably have too many pedals rather than not enough

Speaking of 20w tube amps, I do like the look of the Marshall Studio Vintage combo. It is very pretty and claims to do the Plexi thing at useable volume.

An Orange AD30, purely based on the British 30 setting on the Spark. Sounds awesome with the jazzmaster!
