Thanks for the concerns & well wishes..
As near as I can tell, and this is still second hand info, He took off the end of the little finger and cut off the ring & middle at the first knuckle. He went to Bangor today for a follow up. AFAIK there was no re-attachment.
It was the left hand and he's right handed so at least that's a saving value. He doesn't have to relearn how to write. & other "personal chores"...
I'll bring y'all up to date again as soon as I see him & have a chat.
I think I'm gonna print off the photo that rrbrown posted in the "show us your damage thread" & hang it on the wall by my TS... just as a vivid reminder how bad it can get & how fast it happens.
Damn folks... I've been a guitar player for 50 odd years... I don't ever want to loose that ability.
Pardon the rambling... I guess when it happens to you or someone you know it's a whole lot closer to home..
As we say in ham radio..."73"..

He's lucky it's the first knuckle mine was the second and I would be better off if it was gone all together.
