So it does seem like Spector is in the works to make a Mike Starr signature model!

    Mike was my biggest influence, and I emailed Spector about this, and PJ Rubal of Spector emailed me back.

    "hello -

    thanks for the email. I am glad you are interested in our basses.

    I have been talking to Mike about some type of model for him but we have
    not finalized any details yet. the plan was to make them an offered model, yes.

    talk to you soon,

    This will be awesome. I always hoped he would get his life together and bounce back and start playing music again!

    I'm curious, what is Mike Starr doing now days besides getting arrested for petty theft?

    because he is on TV with the VH1 has-been druggies show. I always liked him as a bassist, but after watching his bipolar actions in that show I lost a lot of respect for the guy. he is definitely manic

    Mike actually mentioned something about it on that VH1 show, rehab with Dr. Drew. (My gf watches it)

    I'd be pretty suprised if Spector actually made him a signature bass available to the masses.

    Don't be me wrong, he was awesome in AIC but that was a long while ago, and now he's only on tv because of his drug problems. IMO thats no reason to get a signature model.

    Seems like a choice that would be begging to be some form of embarassment for the company. IMHO, not a great marketing decision.

    However... "talking about" and "wanting" in an email often doesn't translate to 'actually happening'.

    Actually he was on love line with Dr. Drew a couple months ago, and sounded a lot more level than he was on the show. He ended up getting further treatment, and probably takes meds for his bipolar behavior.

    Ace Frehley told him , he might have him come on a track on his next album, and I hear he is putting together a band called Motorcade.

    Well every now and again I get to pay tribute to him. I own his original Ampeg SVT-II amp that he used in the studio and tour for Facelift and Dirt. As I type this I can look over to my left and see the markings that are on the amp, that were made for his tone. At least I got that. Amazing I made this post in 2010, and then in 2015 they made his signature bass.
