Very cool! That Harmony looks very similar to my Martin 000-15M.

Same size and material, but that's where the similarity ends. The 000-15 is a better guitar for most purposes, but the harmony h165 does a good impression of certain 30s guitars on old records. The ladder bracing and string-through bridge means it's not as loud as a 000-15, and gives it a lot more midrange. Great for ragtime and bottleneck stuff. Live I plug the soundhole pickup into the amp and it's yet a whole other thing as an electric.
I wish I had a 000-15 too.

For the types of music that I like the most your rig would do me just fine. Here is my 000-15M.

As age has increased I find myself looking for simplicity and easy to move. My 2 main electrics these days are a Gretsch 6120 vintage (T-Armonds) and a Ron Kirn “Barnbuster”. Amp is a Quilter 101Reverb and a 2 x 10 cab with 2 sc-64 Eminence speakers. While I admit that I haven’t played with a band with this rig, I think it sounded better than my ‘65 DRRI. No pedals (yet). I’m turning the bass down on the amp, everything else at noon. Just a great Fender type sound. Easy to dial in. Just one cord from the guitar to the amp!

I can't roast as I can find a use for everything on the list. If I had to change anything, I would drop the Mooers and the chorus, just because I dislike any chorus, and have lost faith in cheap import pedals.
