      Needed a cheap'n'cheerful acoustic that I didn't mind banging around.
      I grabbed a used Takamine "Jasmine" 34C. Made in Indonesia.
      It actually sounds a lot better than I expected it to. Good projection, decent tone. It won't win any fit and finish awards, but it's going to help me hurt my fingertips and that's the important thing

      Not a very good picture of it, but this is my kit:

      Snare(pictured): 1963 Ludwig Pioneer 14x6(6lug)

      Cool, another Pioneer!!! I've got a '60 (posted earlier in this thread) in duco finish... Two weeks ago the sump pump crapped out on the night I should have brought it to the studio... Long story short, I'm playing the Vistalite and my Pioneer is floating in 8" of water in the basement!!
      When I found it there upon returning from my rehersal I was sure it was the end of it!! I removed both heads and let it dry thoroughly and there was no sign of damage!! That little bugger must have been through a lot in the 50 years it's been on this planet!! Still one of my faves!!

      02 GTI 1.8T. It's SILVER!

      This is a family portrait. On the left, my trusty SB-2. On the right, my Lakland Duck Dunn, which is a beautiful bass, but unfortunately was on backside of this flash. And in the back is my rig. A Trace-Elliot GP12 amp, a 2x10 Avatar cab and a 1x15 Ashdown cab.

      It's a mutt, but I love it. The amp and the cabs all fit in the back of my little GTI, stealth-like.

      I took the shot in my garage (duh) and held the Speedlite off camera and pointed it at my car (to the left), which is silver and reflected it back.

      I've got an Ibanez Talman with a Bigsby like your Gretsch on the left. Can't stand changing strings on the thing!

      Biggest mistake I ever did was getting rid of my Trace...can't afford another one now.

      Nice Gretsches!

      I have a 5120 at home that I love. I need to do a little setup work on the pickups to get it exactly right, but they're great guitars.

      I had been considering one of the ProJets for a while, but I think I'd get more use out of a Les Paul first.

      Anyhow, yours are nice!

      They play beautifully and the 5120 sounds really nice acoustically but the gretschbuckers are pretty bad and way too midrangey so don't give off that gretsch sparkle and bite...I just ordered a set of tv jones classics for it

      I totally agree with you. They're nice guitars with cheap hardware.

      I've thought about TVJoneseses for mine also, but I might play with the stock pickups and wiring a bit first. Some people on some Gretch forums have apparently had some pretty good results with pole adjustments and other tweaks like that.

      sweet control room! I like the corner traps. home made or purchased?

      did you have to tune the room much or did it just come together?

      Thanks man,

      All the traps and absorption panels were DIY. In fact, everything in there except the desk is DIY. The panels are made out of OC703 fiberglass. Real simple, made about 20 of them, with four that go from floor to ceiling. It really made an impact on it. I still have a small 60hz dip at the mix position, but I've learned to compensate... So far things are coming out great. It's a nice to place to work.
