Does anyone have one of these? It's the clear one given to him by a member of Cheap Trick I believe. The see through one. It was used in the "all my life" foo fighters video. I'm interested if anybody has one. Email me with pix.
I have one of the transparent black ones. It plays better than my 69...waaaay better. The neck is slimmer and it *almostr* stays in tune...pretty high praise for a DA!.
are you interested in selling it? How much did you get it for?

As far as I know only two lefty Dan Armstrong clear guitars were made. One guitar and one bass. Both owned by Sir Paul McCartney. If anybody wants a closeup pix of paul, I have one I got from Linda McCartney. Pretty cool and very rare guitar indeed.
Early serial # Dan Armstrong. All original, Country Bass, and Rock Treble Pickups. Extra electronics ( original ) , Extra NECK !!!! ( one thin , one fat) Extra thumbscrews ! Good condition . Sounds and plays great ! Non original ... but better fitting hard case included.
Please contact me for details
Just curious really about my guitar - when it was made and how many. It has 348 stamped in it. Unfortunately I daren't slide the pickup due to a break in the wire right where it enters the plastic casing. It's ok, the instrument sounds fine with the pickup where it is but if anyone has a suggestion, do call.
Does anyone have an original Dan Armstrong manual in good shape that they are willing to sell/ trade.
I have many original parts / necks etc.
Do you happen to have an original pickguard? Turns out the re-issues don' fit properly.
Unfortunately I have no manual of any kind...but I'd sure be inclinded to purchase a pickguard.
Yes I do
I have unused original pickguards that were purchased from the factory 1971.
Please e mail me for the particulars
