Dan Armstrong guitar ID

I recently aquired a Dan Armstrong clear guitar . The serial number appears to be A2475D. Can someone decode the SN? when was it made approx? It has an ST pickup and just needs a bit of cleaning and tarnish removal

Your pickup

David, This is Barney Spector in Connecticut. I'll pay $50 more than whatever Teve offers for your ST. I have one and it's the hottest, sweetest pickup I have ever owned and I want another. Barney

Hello,

Your guitar should be from the last batch made: already the ST pickup says this (the older ones came with RT and CB (Rock Treble and Country Bass) pickups, and the newer ones with the RT and ST-Sustain Treble), but also the serial number suggests maybe even as late as 1971. I once purchased a replacement neck from Ampeg and the number was in the 2800's: they told me that there were a few more necks made than bodies, right when they stopped making them.

I am very interested in buying the ST pickup from you. I have an original 1969 RT pickup to offer, plus cash. Your guitar will still be in all original shape and you'll be richer. Please email me to teye@teye.com - I will pay good money.

non-sliding Dan Armstrong pickups wanted

I'm looking for a pair of the later Dan Armstrong pickups, not the sliding ones, but the ones that fit standard humbucker rings and have Dan's signature on the black cover. Anyone have a pair they'd like to give up? Thanks!

Re: non-sliding Dan Armstrong pickups wanted

: Need to ID A real Black Dan Armstrong Lucite Cell #(323)945-2247 323)478-1809- Home Did they Reish Can I tell By the Pot's ? Please Ask for chris

Ampeg made approximately 8 black lucite guitars and basses. This 1970 model can be found at Mars Music®

Dan states "we bought some butyrate plastic sheets (black) to try it out as we understood that butyrate was 'moldable' - so we made 8 guitars and 8 basses and they sounded sort of dead, so we gave up the molding idea. Acrylic (plexiglass) shrinks some 20% in a mold, and would require more machining than starting with sheets!"

Due to their rarity however, the black Dan Armstrong guitars and basses are highly sought after and very collectable instruments today. Despite their problems, they tend to fetch relatively high prices as a result.

Hope this helps.

Are The Prices for Real? Six String

Reviewing a recent auction in GB and am somewhat stunned by the realized price of an original. With currency conversion, that's a bit more than three grand USD.

Are these becoming that rare?

Cheers

Dan Armstrong mahogany bass with sliding p'up for sale

I am selling a Dan Armstrong 4-string bass guitar with solid mahogany body and single sliding pickup. These are the guitars that Dan Armstrong made when he moved to England for a period around 1975. A 6-string version of the same shape and finish as this bass guitar can be seen at http://www.danarmstrong.org/images/wood_guirar_large.jpg . The bass is in good condition generally, with some small chips to the rear of the body, probably where it stood on a guitar stand, and a very few minor marks to the front. The neck and electrics (single sliding pickup, tone and volume pots) are fine. Scale length is approximately 34". It has no case, but lives in a Warwick gig bag. Please email me at bobmoore@ntlworld.com if you would like to see some photos of the bass. I am asking £600 ovno. I am in England, so courier charges within UK will be about £40, overseas shipping costs unknown but I would guess at £100 or more? All to be confirmed!

Dan Armstrong Bass

I'm trying to determine year/value of an original Dan Armstrong Bass with serial # D251A. It's in great shape. I haven't played in 25+ years but I loved it when I played.

Re: Dan Armstrong Bass

Would you consider selling it. My brother has had one since he was 14
and has worn it out. Would be a great X-mas present.

sliding humbucker pick-ups

Is it true that the DA 'london' (mahogony) version's sliding-humbucker operates as a single-coil pick-up when the tone is turned to the maximum position? Should the knob 'click' at this point? I have one and have never noticed this?
