    Just took a walk through there on my lunch break...

    They had a TrainWreck, a couple of Purple Plexi 800 pedals and a Silverface Fender Twin that looked like it had just been pulled out of a time capsule... real sweet.


    just throwing it out there in case someone was interested...

    bump for NJ and NYC people... lots of Zvex, Mad Professor, Maxon and other pedals too....saw a nice vintage green MXR "green monster" analog delay there as well....

    plus lots of vintage 60's strats and LP's that I can't dream of affording

    beware of GAS!

    Lark St. Music is a great shop. I try to stop in there everytime I'm down that way. Buzzy used to be up here in Albany (actually on Lark St.) but he moved the whole operation down to Teaneck a few years back. Huge loss for the Capital Region... Thank God we've still got Parkway!

    How are they closed Saturdays!! Yikes!! That kills me everytime. I always find a way to tie in a trip to that area in NJ on a Sat only to check and see they are closed. Doh!

    #1 this is the first Trainwreck that Ken Fisher built,
    and arguably the most famous, it's a "Liverpool"

    in Jan 1983, well documented-, this is the one you want if you want a Trainwreck,
    comes in the cabinet pictured (Ken put this cab with it several years ago)
    as well as the primitive oak cabinet that originally housed it,
    rare with rich harmonics, simply the best, exc...............$39,500

    They had a nice Alembic guitar a month ago, and a 57 strat. The Alembic was the one w/ the LED's on the neck. I'd never played one before and I admit it was nice to have a wide flat 2-octave neck w/ jumbo frets but also the tightness of a Fender scale length. Really played nicely.
    Yeah, Lark st. is cool. retail pricing, but they had a lots of amps and pedals to try.

    Buzz is a great guy. I have been doing business with him for years. All the great gear eventually passes through his doors.

    He is open on Sundays if Sat is a problem for you. Sundays are actually pretty good days to stop by the shop --- you will usually run into some pretty top notch players there on Sundays noodling away.

    People in NJ do not know Lark Street?

    Best, Pete.

    Buzzy is about as laid back as a music store owner can be....Saturday is his day of rest!

    I used to play over at Odonaughes which is over near 1st and Park. Many great times in that little club.

    And Lark Street always has some nice stuff in stock.

    Unless you walk into his store sporting a Yankee shirt. Or if you ask him to take a Suhr on a trade.
