    Moved most of my gear to the finished basement so I have a little more room. The other side of the room is for my daughter and her Lego station.. going to get her keyboard setup so we can work on some music soon too. Will be working on moving the guitar hangers so I can move the rest of my guitars down too.

    Looking good there..Hope there's no humidity issues.
    That often happens in a basement studio..

    I think you should work on playing and treadmilling at the same time.... :)

    Imagine an entire marching band, each member on their own treadmill!

    Really! A couple years ago a buddy of mine nearly ruined a 1965 Mosrite Ventures bass he had bought new back then. Neck bowed so much it pulled out the tuner screws and corroded the bridge switch, pots and frets. I fixed it all up for him and managed to save all the original parts.

    For about 10 years I had my work room and recording studio in a basement.. (no other choice)..
    I didn't keep my working guitar there but I had some that I was working on and a couple of cases that were down there, and a couple of amps....Had a hell of a time getting that musty smell out of the cases and amps..

    I did install a dehumidifier down there that has a hose running to the drain so it's always on and really doesn't have that basement feel. I haven't used that treadmill since I moved, If I workout I use the elliptical at the gym. Much better workout I think. I have watched AFV.. I would probably trip and go flying and break my guitar if I tried doing the treadmill while playing.

    Leave nothing on the floor basements eventually flood when you least expect it. Just make it easy to put your stuff off the floor when your done playing

    Yeah I was thinking about that. I plan to hang guitars on the wall. Think I need to find some sort of stand for the 2x12 half stack setup.
    Makes me sad. My old house was on a hill so if the basement flooded I'd have bigger issues than my modest gear collection. That studio room was huge too.. The basement was a walk out too so it didn't really seem like a basement at all.
