    I don't play much right now due to 4 young kids, house and car maintenance and mandatory overtime. I am also recovering from an injury and catching up on repairing some flooding that occured in my practice space (don't worry - my gear is safe).

    I'm in a "gearing up" stage at the moment. Getting ready for when I have more time for playing and recording.

    I've created a space for tinkering.

    I'm building up a modern recording setup.

    I'm building my dream Vox amp.

    I've started ordering parts for my dream Marshall Amp. (I've already picked up the Marshall 4x12 with V30s)

    I need to recap and service the amps I built 15 years ago and sell some of them. I need to do some guitar maintenance also.

    I don't even really have time to tinker at the moment. I usually accomplish this during Christmas vacation.

    I did break down and buy a Vox modeling amp, for those times when I have a hankering to play, but my amps are all in various states of tinkering ;)
