Our repair shop on Sunset Blvd was an incubator of guitar ideas. In the short time we were there (2005-2007), Mark saw hundreds of interesting customers and worked on thousands of guitars... quite a few of which would be considered holy-grail guitars.
Regular repair customers included producers: T-Bone Burnett, Tom Rothrock, and Oliver Leiber. Bands: OK GO, Rilo Kiley, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, and many more.
In addition to repairs- Mark also made the first LeMans guitars here- despite not having a spray booth. We will now admit to building a "garden shed" with and explosion proof fan and light, on our patio. Don't try this at home.
