I thought I would take advantage of the sunny (albeit cold) Southwestern Ohio day yesterday. I had really never taken any decent (and these aren't great) pictures of my 2001 American Standard Jazz. I played about 3 dozen before I picked this one up one day, and the neck is perfect on this thing. I was also able to finally capture the true color of my new 2005 Warrior that I got in December. This is my acoustic. I searched and searched for this. It is a 1984 Alvarez-Yairi DY74C. I had played a 1984 DY74, and loved it, so I held out for a much harder to find cutaway version. Anybody who has played a mid 70's to mid 80's (or just about any year, for that matter) Yairi knows they are about the best bang for your buck out there! Here is my gu!@#r. It is a Peavey Predator. I put some Fender Custom Shop '54 pickups in it, shielded it, and put a black pearl pickguard on it. Why?!?!?!? These things have some of the nicest necks I have played. You can get them on eBay for about $150, but you have to be sure to get the one that says "Hand Crafted In America" on the back of the headstock and has the script "Predator" on the front. And my rig. EA iAmp 350, EA CXL210 cabinet. 1971 Fender PA 100 all tube PA head. I use this with the guitar through the EA cabinet (sometimes I use it with my Jazz), and my almost 2 year old daughter loves to sing through it with a mic plugged in. I occasionally use the Aphex Punch Factory compressor. You can also see my M-Audio Quattro USB interface I use to record.
