    View attachment 2629 I was at Trutone Music today in Santa Monica and ran into Adam. I've owned several of his killer amps and now want one of his Pimp Stick guitars! Great sounding guitar! Adam is a great player and a super nice guy!

    I love this solo, it reminds me of seagulls taking off in flight after the ferry engine is started in the morning. An incredible talent for sure.

    It was great to finally meet you GAT! By the way, great playing on that LP you were checking out. This is the guitar GAT got to play. All korina, 24.75 scale, Ron Ellis pu's. I'm just having them built for myself, since no one builds the specs I want. I don't expect many people would be very interested.

    wow, great solo. There was a clip on Adam Stark's website quite a few years ago that was killer as well - did the album ever get released?

    I just posted a pic of Adam and I. That guitar was so lightweight (not hollow or chambered) and resonant! It just sang! And, although it was more Gibson-like, it still had that twang.

    I'm so jealous! Barry Weber (frankenstrat2, may he rest in peace) used to regale those of us not making the trek to LA NAMM with stories about Dana, Adam, Mark, Leon, Jon, et al -- and how much he loved making music with all you guys.

    Great picture. I've played one of your earlier guitars, Adam, and thought it was way excellent. Not to mention owning several of your equally excellent amps.

    I'd be very interested in the specs of the guitars you're making now (Pimp Stick? You definitely know how to name stuff!)

    That's a trem version of the same guitar with top route and pick guard.
