    I remember now seeing a Gretsch Burgundy Spk at the Chicago Show one year and the owner said he made the inlays from a Ludwig Burgundy Spk drum he had...was exactly the same.

    Mike, on a separate note, you have a special place in my heart having gone through the cancer fight with my wife of twenty years. I will pray for you to stay strong and continue treatment.

    Thanks Mike...I'm still hanging on to most everything... I thought I was ready to sell until I sold a snare to Bijan...I was depressed afterwards, even though it went to a good friend and good home. Maybe he will post some pics. I understand the Drum Show will be moved back to Kane County...

    Hey Mike!!! Long time for me too... Here's my Ludwig Burgundy kit which is the exact same finish Gretsch used, but I have to refer to a higher authority... Am I correct Bijano?
