Thought I'd check and see if any of my homeboys on GMC would know where to find one. Every single place I checked is sold out. Brownells has just one that can be back ordered, and the rest can't even be back ordered. I back ordered that one, but would like to get another one. Anybody have any luck?

Its not often I'm blown away by a random YouTuber, but this guy totally destroyed the low expectation I had when I stumbled on this grainy webcam video. I was looking up reviews on the DiMarzio Virtual Vintage 54 Pro and came across this video. Wow. Thats all I can say. He's clearly inspired by David Gilmour, but has his own twist to it. These are the tastiest licks I've come across since that dream I had about Kim Kardashian the other night.
Check him out. Subscribe if you like his stuff and give him some support. He definitely deserves it. He also sold me on these pickups, they sound wicked \m/

I took a bit of a break from GMC, for a few different reasons. For one, I was developing a condition in my right elbow, most likely cubital tunnel syndrome. Can't say for sure because I diagnosed myself. Basically, I lost so much strength in my wrist, that I couldn't even turn the ignition on the car. Therefore, a break from playing was in order, as I'm certain that's what was causing it. The second reason for the break was just because of time - I'm in engineering school, and anybody that has studied engineering can tell you, it leaves you with very little free time.
During my time off, I analyzed what I was doing wrong, and realized a few things. I was using too much tension while picking, especially while practicing tremolo picking. I was also keeping my elbow bent for long stretches of time, not only while playing guitar, but also while at the computer, writing, or even sleeping. So I started practicing picking with as little effort as possible, and taking more and longer breaks. This, combined with the two months where I didn't even touch the guitar, has helped tremendously.
Unfortunately, it is starting to comeback, but not that bad. I started getting lax with the guidelines I set out for myself, and now I'm paying the price. This really just goes to show that preventing injury is something that must always be on your mind. You may think your issue has went away, but it hasn't.
Anyhow, glad to be back amongst friends
