    I am pretty sure it is Trigger finger. 1 steroid injection to the knuckle and a few days of soreness and that will be done.

    Next is my hip and lower lumbar.

    And he's still working like a madman pumping out product on a consistent basis.

    rayne im so sorry
    i wanted to order another pickup from you didnt see the web site but found this thread
    rayne did a miracle. he made my prs sound good not an under statement.
    ra is the worst but there are treatments with diets. i know from experience.
    rayne bent over backwards for me to make my prs ce sound beyond the scope of the guitar
    god bless and i hope you can recover

    I had a friend who ended up having hand surgery because of trigger finger. He picked a hand surgeon purely because his name was Dr. (wait for it) James Brown. How could you go wrong Heh! All is good today so there is hope. My friend just put out a record with his new band and sits in with about 10 others. He plays for a living now and no issues.

    Yeah yep he sure does Matt, but when you can't move your fingers cause the knuckles locked up well you can't grab wire. By the way I am working just got some parts in and am waiting still for my black nickel covers.

    As far as the visit it was on the 10th and have been in and out of the hospital with my daighter. She has a appendicitis. As far as me.

    Trigger finger in 3 fingers.
    L3-4, L4-5, L5-S1 degenerative disc disease
    l4-5, L5-S1severe arthropathy
    1-2 mm retrolisthesis of L4 on L5 ( in other words from my fall in 2010 my L4 is sitting 2mm forward of my L5. In a nut shell Doc says I am looking at a wheel chair with in the next 12 - 16 months. And yes it is looking like surgery at this point. Started exercising basically walking and some miner hiking. Lost 16 pounds so far. Down to 200 pounds which the doc says will help.

    Anyway stock is being built some new designs as well as a new lead solderer and someone to manage my shipping. All will be coming soon. I am even gonna do a shipping guarantee. If they do not ship within 7 days they are free. Got to run.

    I ordered the pickups at the end of July. I paid for them. I never got them.
    I have given up now as I am worn out from trying to get a hold of MHD and trying to find out where the pickups are.
    I never received tracking information so I have no idea.
    I requested a refund. I am waiting for a reply. I don't know if I will get one.

    I am grateful that I can play guitar. :)
    Even if it is with the old stock pickups.

    I never heard from MHD and no pickups.

    I hate reading these stories. I guess I'll consider myself lucky to have gotten the set I have in a reasonable amount of time.

    I love my MHD Manfred set and I like the concept of the brand. Some of the names chosen for his pickups came from suggestions I made on this forum a while back. I was excited about the changes and I always thought these could be successful for the long haul but not anymore.

    MHD dude, Rayne, get your shit together and make things right with folks that spent money with you before your ship sinks. I don't know how many people are in limbo but even one is too many.

    this makes me :( I recommend Rayne to every guitar player I know or meet. I gave his business card to some big name musicians I worked with explaining how awesome him and his product are. Hopefully it all goes good and the proverbial finger gets pulled out of the proverbial ass.

    Rayne pickups are among the best winds i have ever had, i feel regret to include them on a guitar i sold, that was a big mistake. I miss those MHD pickups a lot.

    Hope you get better Rayne. I need a new set.
